What's New at the Historic Zoning Commission

Potential Kenner Manor NCZO Overlay

Residents of the Kenner Manor National Register district are considering a neighborhood conservation zoning overlay. Comments and suggestions regarding the Kenner Manor design guidelines may be sent to or 615-862-7970. The guidelines are based on the Secretary of Interior's Standards and with the aid of an architectural resource survey. The MHZC public hearing is planned for 2/20/19, the Planning Commission public hearing for 3/28/19 and the Council public hearing for April 2, 2019. Please double check published agendas for each body for any changes to these dates.

Revised Guidelines in the Downtown Core Districts

Three historic districts located in the Downtown Core (DTC), Broadway, Second Avenue and Downtown Historic Preservation Zoning Overlays, are considering a revision to their design guidelines. Review drafts here. Initial changes to the working drafts showed new text underlined and text proposed to be removed stricken. Changes were made after 3 community meetings and a 4th is to be announced. Comments continue to be accepted by contacting or 615-862-7970.

Opportunity for Realtors

The Historic Preservation 101 for Nashville Realtors and Developers on 12/2/2017 was a great success. Look for another class soon.
