The Metro Planning Department is asking residents and workers in the MetroCenter area to attend one of two public meetings this week to help update the North Nashville Community Plan.

Two gatherings Tuesday, March 30, at the Maxwell House Hotel — one beginning at 3 p.m. and the other at 6 p.m. — are the last neighborhood meetings for citizens to discuss issues such as growth, development and preservation in MetroCenter.

The meetings are part of a series of public discussions the planning department is holding across North Nashville as part of the scheduled update to the North Nashville Community Plan, which guides land use policy in the area.

The department will later hold larger meetings open to the entire North Nashville area May 6, June 17, July 27, September 2 and September 16. Those gatherings will also begin at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m., and will each be held at the Maxwell House Hotel.

The department is seeking input from business owners, landowners, and the people who live and work in MetroCenter to determine how land and buildings should look and be used in the future.

Davidson County is divided into 14 different communities for planning purposes.
