Planning Commission To Present Music Row Design Plan

Metro Planning DepartmentThe Music Row Detailed Design Plan will be presented to the Metro Planning Commission at their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, Dec. 8 at 4 p.m. The meeting will be in the auditorium of the Howard Office Building, 700 Second Ave. S.

This plan comes after several months of discussion and community outreach.

On June 27, 2016, Metro Planning Staff presented a draft of the plan to the community for review. As a result of concerns related to that plan, the Planning Staff reached out to stakeholders, including participants in a Music Row Summit at Belmont University on Oct. 6.

The majority of participants appear to agree on the basic standards of the Design Plan. Most concerns are related to implementing the Plan, which the Staff recommends be done by creating a form-based zoning code, called the Music Row Code.

A separate process will be undertaken following the adoption of the Music Row Design Plan to determine the details and feasibility of a form-based zoning code.
