Potluck: NashvilleNext -- Your dreams count!

Guest Presenter: Greg Claxton of NashvilleNext

Just like Transition Nashville, Metro Nashville is making plans for a sustainable future.  To make the planning process more of a two-way street, the NashvilleNext project was created.

Greg Claxton, city planner and part of the NashvilleNext team, will share the vision that is emerging, lead us through some visioning of our own, and field our questions about the process and the possibilities.

To learn more about the project, see www.NashvilleNext.net.  You can also participate in the community discussion through the interactive site, talk.nashvillenext.net.

We should not miss this opportunity to hear what the planners are thinking and to let them know what kind of Nashville we're working toward.

Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends.

    Greg's presentation was pretty interesting and informative. I don't think he had any idea what he was in for when he asked for our suggestions!: >) Great people, as always, but food was a little light this time.

    I went to NN facebook page and made a comment, but was unable to sign in to the NN website. I tried in both Explorer and Firefox and both denied access. I will try again. Any suggestions?

      Arnold, meeting in a church is different from meeting as a church! :-)

      April 2, 2013

    • Arnold Joseph W.

      Did we meet "as" a church last night? ~"Love is the answer."~

  • martin h.

    I really appreciated getting to communicate with somebody from the city of Nashville rather than just keep talking among ourselves, although the "talk among ourselves"got into some pretty hot topics this time, as well.
