West Trinity / Katie Hill / Haynes Area Planning Study

Community planning in Nashville is a collaborative process. Our Community Design planners work with community stakeholders to create large- and small-area plans which balance the community's varying needs to arrive at a common vision.

Community involvement is always at the center of the planning process, shaping growth that preserves our city’s character and development that reinforces and enhances Nashville’s uniqueness.

A charrette is a series of public workshops held on-site over a short period of time. Charrettes includes a variety of stakeholders and participants and offer a very effective way to focus citizen participation.

Community input from a West Trinity Lane charrette in November 2017 is a vital part of the planning process in this area. Details, including presentations and documents, are linked below.
