Nashville's future (and free food)

The Nashville Neighborhood Alliance and the Neighborhoods Resource Center are hosting a public forum entitled the “Future of Nashville Neighborhoods Summit” next Thursday, August 31, at 6 p.m. at the Adventure Science Center.

The summit is intended as an opportunity for public officials and local residents to come together to identify the concerns we face and begin to form our collective vision of what the future of Nashville should hold. The topic for the evening is, “What do we want the future to look like in our neighborhoods?” NNA and NRC intend for the event to serve as the first step in a three-step plan to shape the future of our community.

This is an important time to be considering the city's future. Next year, Nashville will elect a new Mayor and new Metro Council. There will be at least a 50 percent turnover in the Council due to term limits.

The forum will reconvene in October to refine its vision and begin to identify strategies for implementing positive change. A third event will be held to prioritize concerns and develop a timetable for taking action.

Dinner will be provided, and RSVPs are requested no later than Tuesday, August 29th. Call Carol McCullough at 782-8212 x28 to register.
