SUBSTITUTE ORDINANCE NO. BL2016-173
An ordinance to amend Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, the Zoning Ordinance of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, by changing from IR to SP zoning for properties located at 2034 and 2037 Pittway Drive and Oakwood Avenue (unnumbered), approximately 1,400 feet north of East Trinity Lane (20.61 acres), to permit a mixed-use development, all of which is described herein (Proposal No. 2016SP-016-001).
WHEREAS, Nashville and Davidson County has observed significant cost appreciation and housing turnover within central areas of the city; and
WHEREAS, an estimated 24% of homeowners and 46% of renters in Nashville are cost-burdened; and
WHEREAS, the phenomenon of cost appreciation and housing turnover can lead to the displacement of cost-burdened households and subsequent gentrification; and
WHEREAS, 29% of all home sales in Nashville and Davidson County in 2015 were affordable to a buyer earning 80% of the average median income (AMI) for a 2.5 person household; and
WHEREAS, much of the housing that is affordable to buyers earning 80% AMI is outside of central areas of Nashville, with poor access to public transit, services, and employment; and
WHEREAS, the development proposed herein is located adjacent to public transit, services, and employers; and
WHEREAS, developer Dale & Associates has voluntarily requested the opportunity to provide affordable and/or workforce housing at this site; and
WHEREAS, developer Dale & Associates has declared its intent and commitment to construct affordable and/or workforce housing at this site, as indicated in the Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions attached hereto as Exhibit A, and to prepare and execute a binding deed restriction to this effect.
