On Thursday, Metro planners are set to begin a series of seven public meetings meant to discuss updating an Antioch community plan to guide growth, development and preservation in that area.
Antioch is one of 14 planning districts within Metro, with each plan getting an update every seven to 10 years, according to a release from the Metro Planning Department.
“It’s our responsibility to hear from everyone who wants to participate, whether they live in Antioch, own property there, go to school there, do business, or have some other connection to the community,” said Metro planner Tifinie Capehart, lead planner on the Update initiative.
The first meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 5, at Lakeshore Church, 5434 Bell Forge Lane East. There, planners will explain the plan update process and accept initial community comments.
Metro Nashville Police Department officers from the “El Protector” community outreach program will also be on hand to provide Spanish translation.
Similar meetings and community discussions are expected to continue through the summer.
