Lebanon Pike Community Planning Study

About the Study

Map of the study area

Donelson neighbors and District 15 Councilman Jeff Syracuse asked the Planning Department to work on possible refinements of current land use policies along a portion of the Lebanon Pike Corridor between Spence Lane and Briley Parkway.

Land use policy guides the Planning Commission’s actions on zone changes and subdivision requests. Any updates made to policies would not change current zoning.

Our goal is to ensure that policies affecting the study area accurately reflect how the members of that community want growth and preservation to happen in the future, and that any significant changes are guided by community input and discussion.

The Donelson-Hermitage-Old Hickory Community Plan describes how current land use policies are applied along this section of Lebanon Pike.

Metro planners held a series of public meetings and discussions, or “charrette,” from April 16-19, working with local property owners, residents, and business owners to get community input on any possible policy changes.

The charrette ended with a presentation and review of possible draft updates to the Donelson-Hermitage-Old Hickory Community Plan. Those draft updates are posted below. Comments were almost entirely positive, and planners continue to work on a proposal to be heard by the Planning Commission in June.

Please address your questions and comments to Metro planner and study leader Dara Sanders.
