Titans Stadium and East Bank: Why I Support the Plan
Over the last couple of years, we have been thoughtfully putting together a plan for the East Bank. The Titan’s stadium is the anchor development of the East Bank that needed its own careful consideration as we’ve deferred required maintenance of it for many years and we’d have to start pulling debt to meet our obligations. There is an extraordinary opportunity here to plan for development that benefits all Nashville-Davidson County. This will be an area that will take a decade or more to build out. Going into this two years ago, I had two fundamental questions to weigh the stadium decision of whether to renovate or build new, as well as how East Bank development should proceed. 1) What is the best scenario for Nashville-Davidson County taxpayers, and 2) Is this development that will benefit every resident of Davidson County?
