RESOLUTION NO. RS2008-265
A resolution accepting the 2007 Plan Update for the South Nashville Community, including the Nolensville Pike Corridor Detailed Neighborhood Design Plan, adopted by the Metropolitan Planning Commission on December 13, 2007.
Whereas, Section 18.02 of the Charter of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requires that zoning regulations be enacted by the Council “only on the basis of a comprehensive plan prepared by the Metropolitan Planning Commission;” and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Planning Commission, in order to fulfill its duty to develop and maintain the General Plan to provide the basis for zoning decisions, has divided the County into fourteen subareas and developed specific plans for each such subarea; and
Whereas, the Plan for Subarea 11 encompasses the community traditionally known as South Nashville; and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Planning Commission directed its staff to work with South Nashville citizens to conduct public meetings and take such other steps deemed necessary to provide public input and review needed to update the Subarea 11 Plan; and
Whereas, nine community meetings were held between March and October 2007, at which community members worked extensively with Planning Department staff to develop their vision for the future of South Nashville Community and four of its neighborhoods, and
Whereas, the 2007 Plan Update for the South Nashville Community was approved by the Metropolitan Planning Commission, following a public hearing, on December 13, 2007; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council recognize the efforts of South Nashville citizens in developing the updated community plan and detailed design plans.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
SECTION 1. The Metropolitan Council hereby goes on record as accepting the Updated Plan for the South Nashville Community which was adopted by the Metropolitan Planning Commission on December 13, 2007.
