What's New at the Historic Zoning Commission

New Historic Landmark Overlay

Belair Mansion, 2250 Lebanon Road, is now protected by a Historic Landmark Overlay. The ordinance was sponsored by District 15 councilman Jeff Syracuse and was approved on July 24, 2017.

Potential Overlays

The Belmont-Hillsboro Neighborhood is considering an expansion of their neighborhood conservation zoning overlay (NCZO) that would include the 1100 blocks of Gale Lane and Clayton Ave, south of Sevier Park. An informational meeting was held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 6 p.m. at Sunnyside Mansion in the middle of Sevier Park. If adopted, the property owners would follow the existing design guidelines for the Belmont-Hillsboro NCZO. The potential overlay passed the MHZC public hearing on 6/21/17.

Design Guideline Revisions

The Germantown neighborhood is considering a revision of their design guidelines. A draft may be considered at the August 16 MHZC meeting.

Opportunity for Realtors

The Historic Preservation 101 for Nashville Realtors and Developers on 12/2 was a great success. Look for another class in late Fall of 2017.
