Community Conversations: Public Workshops

The mayors and county executives who comprise the Executive Board of the Nashville Area MPO invite their constituents to learn more about major regional transportation planning efforts and important changes to public policy therein.  The public will have the opportunity to hear an in-depth presentation and submit questions & comments on proposed infrastructure investments to support the livability, sustainability, prosperity and diversity of the region as a whole, as well as that of their individual counties of residence.

Current Schedule
    * Davidson County - Mon., Nov. 29th, 5:00-7:00 p.m., Adventure Science Center, 800 Fort Negley Boulevard, Nashville 37203 - with Metropolitan Nashville Mayor Karl Dean,

An "Open House" with refreshments served will be held from 5:00-5:30 p.m., with 2035 Plan visuals and project lists available for public review and conversation with MPO multi-modal planning experts. The presentation of the Plan will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m., followed by Q&A and discussion with your county's mayor(s), to begin at approximately 6:15 p.m.

The MPO is currently finalizing a major update to its multi-billion dollar regional transportation plan that includes a vast scope of federally-funded transportation projects. The MPO sets aside money for projects that support significant policy initiatives such as mass transit -including modernized options for Middle Tennessee such as streetcar or Bus Rapid Transit- as well as walkable/bikeable communities, and roadway technologies to keep people & goods moving through the region.
