2016 NashvilleNext Annual Report
Implementation: Carrying Out the Plan
NashvilleNext brought thousands of Nashvillians together to consider what changes the city is facing and what our needs and aspirations are as a city. NashvilleNext established a vision and outlined goals, policies, and future actions.
The issues facing Nashville and Davidson County are complex, and many topics will need further study and more input from community members.
NashvilleNext is being implemented by Metro Planning and other Metro departments, by the private sector, and through the work of non-profits. Here are some of the efforts under way that could benefit from your input:
The Metro Transit Authority’s update of its strategic plan for transit in Nashville/ Davidson County and the region.
Review of the Capital Improvements Budget (CIB)
The Planning Department is working to improve the capital planning process to promote effective, efficient spending, transparency and alignment with long-term community goals.
Details of the current budget and the capital budget process are on our Capital Improvements Budget Planning page.
Community Planning Studies
The Planning Department continues to work with residents, business owners, community groups, property owners, institutional representatives, and elected officials to create small-area plans. These Community Planning Studies expand upon the policy guidance of NashvilleNext to provide specific recommendations for neighborhoods.
Parks Master Plan
"Plan to Play" is the countywide parks and greenways master plan.
The WalkNBike plan will improve walking and biking in Nashville, connecting people to opportunity on a network of high-quality, comfortable, and safe sidewalks and bikeways.
