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 - and we're still receiving your thoughts and comments at the online link below.
