Residential Neighborhood Street as Greenway Extenders in Nashville?

Residential Neighborhood Street as Greenway Extenders?

Nashville neighborhood roads could be repurposed as Greenway Extenders.  This is my neighborhood which truly looks like a Greenway at any given moment. 

Note the inexpensive road design - just a plate of asphalt.  No curb, no gutter, no sidewalks.  This is typical of most neighborhood road in Nashville. 

If Nashville shifted gears and adjusted our culture to be pedestrian forward by reducing speed limits to 20mph on local residential streets & embracing the law of yielding to pedestrians, we could quickly have many more 'Greenways' for recreation and health.
