The Draft Plan - Vision, Trends, & Strategiescover of NashvilleNext draft

NashvilleNext is a long-range plan for Nashville's future, intended to guide growth, development, and preservation in our city over the next 25 years.

It's a plan on a scale that has never been undertaken before, based on the open and transparent exchange of ideas with our residents over three years of planning and community engagement. Thousands of community members have provided comments and direction, served on advisory committees, and helped shape the planning process, and there is still time to be part of the plan.

We invite you to review the plan and its supporting materials, and email your comments on the Draft Plan or share your thoughts through our online survey. The plan belongs to all of us, and your input is important as we set a path for our city and region.
