A resolution requesting the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency to create a redevelopment plan for the Dickerson Pike area.
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) has the authority under state law to initiate redevelopment projects for the purpose of removing, preventing, or reducing blight; and
WHEREAS, MDHA has implemented redevelopment plans for blighted areas in Nashville, including the Capitol Mall plan, the Five Points plan, the Arts Center plan, the Phillips-Jackson Street plan, and the East Bank plan; and
WHEREAS, the redevelopment plans approved by the Metropolitan Council and implemented by MDHA have been extremely effective in redeveloping blighted areas in our city, which has helped make Nashville, Tennessee a great place to work and live, and enhanced our local economy through the relocation of various businesses and sports franchises; and
WHEREAS, for many years, the Dickerson Road area has been neglected by city decision makers, which has contributed to increased poverty, drug use, and criminal activity in the area; and
WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the citizens of Nashville and Davidson County that MDHA take the necessary steps to create a redevelopment plan for the Dickerson Road area located in Council District 5.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
