You'll notice the red and white Metro signs along Lebanon Pike between Briley Parkway and Stewart's Ferry Pike in the Urban Design Overlay. Over the last several months, some business and property owners and I have been meeting with the Planning Department in terms of streamlining aspects based on how its implementation has been going since its inception a decade ago. Changes have never been made to it and these are purely administrative, working in tandem with Planning and property owners. It does not change anything fundamentally with the vision and rather enhances the ease of its applicability when development occurs. A few duplicative elements are being removed as they're already been addressed in subsequent plans that have been created since then, such as NashvilleNext and the Walk-Bike Plan for Sidewalks and Bikeways. I'm pleased and thankful for how Planning and property owners were all on the same page with this process. It went before the Planning Commission on Thursday, June 26th and will next go before Council for three readings. Please feel free to review the red-lined edits here and don't hesitate with any questions.
Congratulations to Mehaul Oleary and team on the grand opening of his new restaurant and pub, The Lost Paddy. Located at 709 Spence Lane near Murfreesboro Pike, it’s a wonderful new addition to the district. Thanks to the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce for hosting a great ribbon cutting.
Check out Hi5 Practice’s transformation of 936 Allen Road where their new home is located. Check out the video of the before and after. Hi5 is a great marketing company that helps connects medical practices with their patients. Check out a picture of the inside of their office. Congrats again to Kevin & Sierra Barnett and their team and thanks for the investment in the district!
