A resolution accepting the 2011 Plan Update for the Bellevue Community, adopted by the Metropolitan Planning Commission on January 26, 2012.
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 plans for each such subarea; and
Whereas, the Plan for Subarea 6 encompasses the community traditionally known as Bellevue and the adjacent communities of Centenary, Linton, Newsom’s Station, Pasquo and White’s Bend; and
Whereas, the Metropolitan Planning Commission directed its staff to work with Bellevue area citizens to conduct public meetings and take such other steps deemed necessary to provide public input and review needed to update the Bellevue Community Plan; and
Whereas, eight community meetings were held between May 2011 and December 2011, at which community members worked extensively with Planning Department staff to develop their vision for the future of the Bellevue Community Plan area; and
Whereas, the 2011 Plan Update for the Bellevue Community, was approved by the Metropolitan Planning Commission following a public hearing on January 26, 2012; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the Metropolitan Council recognize the efforts of Bellevue area citizens in developing the updated community plan.
