Ticket to Ride + April UDF: Transit Oriented Development

Join Nashville Civic Design Center and Transit Now Nashville and take a ride on the Music City Star train to Donelson on Wednesday, April 25th.

We will depart from Riverfront Station and travel to the Donelson train station. From there, we will take a 4 min. walk over to the Larry Keeton Theatre for snacks, beer, and the Urban Design Forum. At this year's Ticket to Ride event, there will be a reception and program focusing on Transit Oriented Development (TOD). Jeff Syracuse, Metro Council member for District 15, will provide an update on where Nashville is with implementing TOD Districts and the benefits of creating this type of transit district. Updates also include status of new infill development near the train station and "Downtown Donelson" plaza. Mary Vavra, with Barge Design Solutions, will present an update and preview images of the TOD conceptual design being planned at the Music City Star Donelson Station.
