Community Leadership

NashvilleNext is a community-driven process.  There's a steering committee of community and Metro partners, who ensure that the process runs smoothly and that it reflects the community's goals in four areas:  Efficient Government, Economic Development, Environment, and of committee meeting

There's also a community engagement committee made up of community leaders, who ensure that the process reaches all local citizens, with special attention to groups which previously have been under-represented in civic processes - for example, minorities, youth, and senior citizens.

Metro Planning Department staff and contracted community engagement consultants are administering the entire NashvilleNext initiative.
