West Nashville Community Plan

About the Plancounty map with West Nashville community highlighted

The West Nashville Community Plan was most recently updated in August 2017 as part of a scheduled review of the NashvilleNext long-range plan.

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.
