We've just completed a summer-long series of 25 informal, drop-in discussions around Nashville and Davidson County, where community members reviewed three possible "futures" - ways our city and county might grow and develop.

Public input from those conversations is being included and considered as planners create a "preferred future" which will be ready for community review in October.

These public events include a presentation from a nationally-recognized expert on a growth-related issue, followed by open and constructive discussion among audience members.
