Resolution RS2020-255

A resolution requesting various Metropolitan Government departments and agencies to provide a comprehensive assessment of the capacity to deliver public services to the Antioch area of Davidson County.

WHEREAS, Metropolitan Council District 28 and southeast Davidson County have experienced unprecedented growth and development in recent years, including substantial multifamily developments, leading to increasing pressures upon existing infrastructure, waterways, public facilities, and services; and

WHEREAS, an estimated 3,000 new apartment units have been approved for development in the area, which will only further exacerbate these pressures on services such as schools, roads, sidewalks, public safety, and water/sewer/stormwater infrastructure; and

WHEREAS, a comprehensive assessment of service capacity involving multiple Metropolitan Government departments is needed before any new multi-family units are approved in District 28.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:

Section 1. That the Metropolitan County Council hereby goes on record as requesting the Metropolitan Planning Department, Metro Water Services, Metro Public Works, Metro Nashville Public Schools, Metro Nashville Police Department, Metro Parks, and Nashville Fire Department to collaborate and provide a comprehensive assessment of the capacity to deliver public services to District 28 in Davidson County. Such assessment should take into consideration the developments that have already been approved as well as the estimated growth in the area.

Section 2. The Metropolitan Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Resolution to the leadership of the Metropolitan Planning Department, Metro Water Services, Metro Public Works, Metro Nashville Public Schools, Metro Nashville Police Department, Metro Parks, and Nashville Fire Department.

Section 3. That this Resolution shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
