WHEREAS, The Council of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County adopted the Downtown Code (DTC) on February 2, 2010; and

Section 1. That Chapter 17.37 of the Metropolitan Code is hereby amended by inserting the following two bullet points on page 13 of the DTC after the first bullet point under “Regulating Plan”.
'• Subdistrict boundaries extend to the centerline of all abutting public street right-of-ways. Any properties not within the subdistrict boundaries of the regulating plan including, but not limited to, rail and river corridors shall be considered an open space subdistrict.
• Unless otherwise regulated by the DTC subdistrict standards, property that is within more than one subdistrict may apply for a minor modification to use the standards of either subdistrict. If the Executive Director of the Planning Department finds that additional consideration is warranted, then the modification request may be submitted to the Downtown Code/MDHA Design Review Committee as a major modification.”
And by inserting the following on page 14 of the DTC to the first bullet point under “Modifications to the Standards” after the words “percent or less¬ –”
