Community planning in Nashville is a collaborative process. Our Community Design planners work with community stakeholders to create large- and small-area plans which balance the community's varying needs to arrive at a common vision.
Community involvement is always at the center of the planning process, shaping growth that preserves our city’s character and development that reinforces and enhances Nashville’s uniqueness.
Building community consensus
A charrette is a series of public workshops held on-site over a short period of time. Charrettes include a variety of stakeholders and participants, and offer a very effective way to focus citizen participation.
Community input from a West Trinity Lane charrette in November 2017 was a vital part of the planning process in this area. Details, including presentations and documents, are linked below.
