What's New at the Historic Zoning Commission

Potential Overlays

A Neighborhood Conservation Zoning Overlay is being proposed for the Hillview Heights-Inverness district. View the draft design guidelines, which include the proposed map boundaries.

Council member Sledge is hosting an informational meeting on November 22, 6pm at the Midtown Precinct. The first of three public hearings regarding the potential overlay will be at 2pm on December 21 at the Sonny West Conference Center, 700 Second Avenue South.

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.

Opportunity for Contractors

The first Contractor's Authorization Training for Work in Historic Overlays was a huge success.

The MHZC has enacted a policy that will require that a contractor have a consultation meeting with MHZC staff before a preservation and building permit may be issued. To prevent holding-up the issuance of permits, the MHZC is offered a 1.5 hour class, specifically for contractors. Attendance authorized the contractor to receive permits immediately when they are available without the required consultation meeting. The purpose of the class and the consultations is to avoid simple yet costly and time-consuming violations and guide applicants through the process.
