Capital Improvements Planning

The Charter of the Metropolitan Government for Nashville and Davidson County requires that the Planning Commission submit a list of recommended capital improvements that are necessary or desirable to be constructed or provided during the next six years.

This capital improvements budget is a planning tool to prioritize and coordinate investments in long-term, durable improvements. Investments are considered to be capital improvements when they:

  • Have a lifetime greater than 10 years
  • Cost more than $50,000

Capital improvements include Metro facilities and equipment, as well as infrastructure (capital investments that shape private activities, such as decided where to live, start a business, or invest). The Planning Commission’s role is most closely tied to infrastructure, which must be closely coordinated with land use regulations.

Metro Planning is continually working to ensure that the Capital Improvements Budget (CIB) aligns with NashvilleNext, is more accessible and transparent, and is data-driven.

The adopted FY2016-17 through FY2021-22 Capital Improvements Budget is below.
