West Nashville Community Plan

About the Plancounty map with West Nashville community highlighted

The West Nashville 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.

A public hearing will be held during the August 24 Planning Commission meeting.
