About the Plan

Subarea 2 map

The Southeast Community Plan was most recently updated in 2015 as part of the NashvilleNext long-range planning process.

All of the Planning Department's fourteen Community Plans are guided by the Community Character Manual,a document which provides detailed policy guidance based on the look and feel of neighborhoods, centers, corridors and open spaces.

Urban Design Overlays (UDOs)

The Southeast community is home to 3 Urban Design Overlays. An Urban Design Overlay, or UDO, is a zoning tool that requires specific design standards for development in a designated area. A UDO is used to either protect the pre-existing character of the area or to create a character that would not otherwise be ensured by the development standards in the base zoning district. UDOs overlay the current base zoning and allow for development standards above and beyond those in the base zoning.
