Metro Nashville Public Works NEW Interactive Map...see where sidewalks are planned, track progress.



Metro Nashville Public Works NEW Interactive Map...see where sidewalks are planned, track progress.


Nashville Public Works has released its interactive map.






Please note that 'Completed' - in green - sidewalks may only mean on a single side - not both sides of the street so this definition of 'completed' is arguable.  I would have liked more clarity as to sidewalk on one side or both.


There is still too much grey here and not enough yellow or blue. There are too many 'sidewalks to no where' - we need to stitch these together for better connectivity.  This must be a goal & we must start talking about an end date for this goal.  Is 5 years fair?  10 years?  Are we even close to ADA compliance in all of Nashville?  What is the legal implications of not completing this goal in a timely way.  When will we have proper sidewalks in Nashville???

Maps like this are important to compare with where citizens wish  sidewalks to be.  Check out:  http://thesidewalkfoundation.org/ which has an interactive map where you can drop a pin where you believe a sidewalk is NEEDED.
