Metro Planning Department
About the Planning Department
The Planning Department's responsibilities include working with local communities to create appropriate land-use policies and transportation priorities in community plans, making recommendations to the Planning Commission on zoning decisions, and providing design services and citywide transportation planning to implement sustainable development and complete streets.
The Planning Department is located at 800 Second Avenue South in downtown Nashville, one block north of the 2nd/4th Avenue exit off I-40.
How to find where development is happening in your area
Our Development Tracker online map lists all of the current development applications filed with the Planning Department. It's updated daily, and you can search it by address, zip code, or Council district. The Development Tracker does not list building permits - those are issued by the Codes Department.
Metro's NashView online map includes locations of building permits, parks, libraries, police and fire stations, and other information about your local issues and services.
