East Nashville residents have an opportunity to weigh in on the sudden controversy surrounding the Gallatin Pike Special Plan.
On Sept. 30 at 5 p.m., East Nashville council members Jamie Hollin, Mike Jameson, Karen Bennett and Erik Cole will hold an open meeting to discuss the plan, a set of zoning guidelines that requires future developments along the road to abide by specified usage, landscaping, signage and street setback standards. The meeting will take place at Metro’s East Police Precinct on Trinity Lane.
The Metro Council approved the Gallatin Pike SP three years ago, but it has become the subject of a lawsuit and controversy in the last few months, with Hollin going so far as to file a bill that would exempt his district from the restrictions.
Hollin — and developers — say the Gallatin Pike SP is a hindrance to future growth and a nuisance for to navigate.
