Changing Nashville Neighborhoods: Getting Around

With the proposal of a new transit plan and a referendum set for May 1, transportation is a hot button issue in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Businesses, government departments, and community leaders are racing to share their insights before the big vote. But how might the transit plan affect our local nonprofit sector, and those they serve? Join us for a presentation about the issues at stake, an overview of the plan, and an interactive panel with community leaders representing diverse perspectives.

This event will include multiple perspectives and will engage representatives of the corporate sector, affordable housing advocates, and the local immigrant community. Director of Transportation and Sustainability Erin Hafkenschiel of the Mayor’s Office will make a short presentation of the details in the plan, and others involved in the programming include David Plazas of The Tennessean and Garrett Harper of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. Participants will have plenty of time to ask questions to the panelists.
