  • Envision Nolensville Pike

    Conexión Américas, the Nashville Area MPO, T4America and the Nashville Civic Design Center hosted a well-attended event to release Envision Nolensville Pike. Envision Nolensville Pike is a product of our creative placemaking work done over the past 6+ months, where we hosted six creative labs to engage about 150 residents and business owners along Nolensville Pike in Southeast Nashville. At the creative labs, people expressed concerns and ideas about traffic, transit, sidewalks, bike lanes, affordable housing and green space. A theme across all of the meetings was the desire to celebrate the rich diversity of the area (such as with a welcoming sign in many languages, among other ideas).

This tops 10 transit recommendations made in the new chamber report, which was led by volunteers.
