About the Study
The Metro Planning Commission and Highland Heights neighbors have asked the Planning Department to work on possible refinements of current land use policies included in the Highland Heights area.

Notice sent to community members
Land use policy guides the Planning Commission’s actions on subdivision requests and zone changes. Any updates made to those policies would not change current zoning.
Our goal is to ensure that policies affecting the Highland Heights area accurately reflect how the members of that community want growth and preservation to happen in the future, and that any significant changes are guided by community input and discussion. The East Nashville Community Plan describes how current land use policies are applied in the Highland Heights neighborhood.
Metro planners will hold a series of public meetings and discussions, or “charrette,” in early March, working with local property owners, residents, and business owners to get community input on any possible policy changes.
Your participation in the public meetings is both welcome and important, and may contribute to future land use policies and guide community design. Planners will also receive your comments at the email addresses below.
