The Plan of Nashville

The Plan of Nashville

The Plan of Nashville is a community-based vision that respects the cultural history, natural landscape and built legacy.

The Plan of Nashville was a 2 1/2 year project to develop a community-based vision and design principles for metropolitan Nashville's urban core, the area within the inner interstate highway loop and the neighborhoods adjacent to it. Since 1950, more than 100 individual plans have been proposed for various parts of Nashville.

The Ten Principles
During the visioning process of The Plan of Nashville, consensus emerged regarding ten principles to guide public policy, development practice,urban planning, and design.

The Plan of Nashville is the first effort to consider the central city in its entirety, develop a community-based vision, and identify design principles. The project is catagorized into four sections below; History, Process, Book and Action.

Access and Livability: Transit-Oriented Development, The Franklin Corridor

As Nashville’s economy and population booms, creating new opportunities for transit will help keep our communities healthy and prosperous. Currently, Nashville is a car-centric city leaving most of its people with the automobile as the only option for transportation. As driving costs, obesity rates, and the median age of the population continue to increase, providing transportation options becomes a priority to ensure public health and continued mobility.
