The Design Trust for Public Spaces
Downtown Nashville is flourishing (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/14/realestate/commercial/nashvilles-skyline-being-rebuilt-by-building-boom.html?_r=0) but what about the other highly valuable centers of Nashville? I am arguing that we need a cohesive and well designed sidewalk plan to connect our city & we need to establish permanent funding in order to complete the task.

Can Nashville make public spaces like these a thing of the past? Can we stop talking about building sidewalks and actually get to the work of it?
There is a huge latent demand for real walkability: sidewalks that connect to destinations, are highly functional, safe, and have beautiful design.
Please let your elected officials know your thoughts or share this post! The more people who care about walkability in Nashville, the better.
