Nashville has an increasing and diverse demand for affordable housing. Past and current growth trends have led to concentrated poverty and gentrification throughout the city.

Led by Conexión Américas and funded by the Kresge Foundation, ENVISION NOLENSVILLE PIKE maps out --literally and figuratively-- the aspirations and dreams for the Nolensville Pike corridor as expressed by residents and business owners during community gatherings. A public/private partnership with the Nashville Area MPO, Transportation for America and the Nashville Civic Design Center.
Arts, safety and transportation will go hand in hand in the revitalization of Nolensville Pike, at least if community members are successful.
