The Metro Nashville Planning Department and global design firm, Perkins Eastman, are undertaking a multi-month study focused on the future land use, urban design, mobility, open space, and environmental resiliency of the East Bank. The Study will guide cohesive and coordinated redevelopment of the East Bank, through updates to the land use policy, the street plan, and changes to Nashville’s long-range general plan, NashvilleNext.

The Study area is roughly 338 acres, bounded by I-24 to the east and south, the Cumberland River to the west, and Jefferson Street to the north.

Engagement Opportunities

Every successful plan requires robust community engagement and coordination with stakeholders. Planners have met with area property owners and have formed two advisory committees, a Neighborhood and a Technical Advisory Committee, to work closely with throughout the planning process..

Public meetings for the Study began on February 4, 2021. Future engagement opportunities will include a design workshop, and a draft open house event. Notification of upcoming engagement opportunities will be posted to this page and mailed to property owners within and adjacent to the study area.
