West Nashville Community Plan Kick Off Meeting Thursday (Oct. 30)

From the Metro Planning Commission:
An eight-month series of community discussions on West Nashville’s growth and development began October 16 with a general overview of the planning process, and continues Oct. 30 with an initial discussion of issues facing the West Nashville community. The Oct. 30 meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at St. Ann Catholic Church, 5101 Charlotte Avenue, in the church's Family Life Center.

These conversations are the early stages of a scheduled update to the West Nashville Community Plan, which guides land use and zoning decisions. The current plan is on our West Nashville community page.

This is an important part of shaping the future for our neighborhood and for West Nashville. Please make plans to attend and make your voice heard.


  1. Hi - does anyone have any comments from the last meeting? I'm interested in getting involved, but 6pm is almost impossible for me most of the time. I'd like to know whether it would be worth taking the time off. Thanks!

  2. The first meeting (Oct. 16) was primarily an introductory session about the process. The Planning Commission talked about how different parts of the community are classified and how the series of meetings will flow.
