NashvilleNext Community Outreach

Community involvement is a vital part of NashvilleNext - here, we share some of the ways we're working with community members to ensure that varied and diverse points of view are included in the planning process.

Community connections

Meet the community members who are guiding NashvilleNext's progress.

Volunteers on our resource teams are shaping NashvilleNext's direction on specific issues.

We'll be presenting a "preferred future" at five community gatherings in October and November - a direction our city and county could possibly take over the next 25 years, based on thousands of comments by and conversations with community members over the past year and a half. We'll begin with a general, countywide meeting, then address more specific Community Plan issues in four local meetings.

Public input on this "preferred future" will help shape a draft General Plan which will guide our community's growth, progress, and preservation through 2040.
