BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – If Harley-Davidson of Cool Springs moves, it won’t be as soon as the dealer hoped.

The motorcycle dealership, sited next to the CoolSprings Galleria in Franklin, received site plan approval for a new site from the Brentwood Planning Commission in March. But nearby homeowners protested that noise from bikes and events would intrude on the neighborhood.

Mallory Park developer Southeast Venture received a letter of intent from the motorcycle dealership June 30 to terminate the sales contract on land for a two-story, 51,200-sq.-ft. showroom, rider training area and stage, Wood Caldwell, a principal with the developer, told the Tennessean.

Originally the owners sought blanket approval of special events as long as they conformed to a protocol, but backed off the proposal.
