Below is the NashvilleNext Quarterly Update to the Metro Council's Planning, Zoning & Historical Committee that occurred on March 18, 2013. Nashville is changing demographically, and generationally and growth is inevitable. The surrounding counties are also expected to grow. This has implications for infrastructure needs, changing education needs, regional cooperation, land use planning, and transportation needs. We must plan for the future. NashvilleNext is developing a vision and a plan for the next twenty-five years. This is a two-year planning process. I urge everyone to get involved in this process. Too often, only the more liberal, big-government advocates engage in the process of planning. Change will
occur whether we plan for it or not. Please get informed and involved.
