Chattanooga responded Tuesday to a request for more information about its urban growth boundary plans by detailing a wide swath of land around three cities it could potentially want to annex in the future.

Mayor Ron Littlefield drafted the letter Tuesday and sent it to the county.

The five-paragraph letter simply states Chattanooga's proposed plans for potential growth boundaries. They include areas around Lakesite, Soddy-Daisy and Collegedale. The lands unclaimed by any of these three cities, the letter states.

"Thank you for your attention on this matter," Littlefield wrote. "I look forward to working with you and other officials of local government to take full advantage of this new season of growth and development."
