Bordeaux/Whites Creek Community Plan

About the Planmap highlighting the Bordeaux/Whites Creek Community Plan area

The Bordeaux/Whites Creek Community Plan was most recently updated in 2015 as part of the NashvilleNext long-range planning process.

All of the Planning Department's fourteen Community Plans are guided by the Community Character Manual, a document which provides detailed policy guidance based on the look and feel of neighborhoods, centers, corridors and open spaces.
