Metro Planning Community Character Manual Meeting June 24

From Metro Planning:

The Metro Planning Department has completed its draft Community Character Manual (CCM), and the agency is inviting the public to review and comment on the document. Metro Planning will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, June 24, 2008 at 5:30 p.m. in the Downtown Convention Center, Room 208. (Metro Planning staff will also be available from 2 to 5 p.m. at the same location to speak with stakeholders individually.)

The CCM is intended to replace the Land Use Policy Application (LUPA), and shift the emphasis of community planning in Nashville/Davidson County to preservation, creation and enhancement of community character.

The Metro Planning Department staff bases its recommendations on zone change and subdivision requests on land use policy, which is the primary product of the Community Plans for the county. The Land Use Policy Application (LUPA) is the document in the Nashville/Davidson County General Plan that has explained each of the land use policies, noting the general intent, appropriate land uses and design principles for each policy.

Metro Planning staff has drawn on the best of LUPA to create the CCM – a process involving many of you in community meetings and on an initial taskforce for review. The CCM is in draft form and ready for review and comment from community stakeholders – residents, property owners, business owners, institutional representatives, development professionals and elected officials. Please find the CCM for your review at www.nashville.gov/mpc. There is also a link at the web site to submit comments electronically. The comment review period will end on July 9, 2008.

Metro Planning staff will present the CCM to the Metro Planning Commission for adoption at a public hearing on August 14, 2008. The Planning Commission meeting will begin at 4 p.m. at Metro Southeast, in the “Green Hills Room” at Genesco Park (1417 Murfreesboro Pike).

If you have questions about the Community Character Manual, please contact Tifinie Adams at (615) 862-7188 or tifinie.adams[at]nashville.gov or Cindy Wood at (615) 862-7166 or cynthia.wood[at]nashville.gov.
