A request to apply an Institutional Overlay District to Fisk University located east of Dr. D.B. Todd Boulevard, along 16th Avenue North, 17th Avenue North, Herman Street, Jackson Street, Jefferson Street, Meharry Boulevard, and Phillips Street (44.23 acres), zoned RM20, to identify the proposed campus boundaries and future university planning efforts, requested by Councilmember Megan Barry for various owners, and Tuck-Hinton Architects, applicant, for Fisk University, owner.
Given that this public hearing concerns predominantly African American neighborhoods and it is being held at the end of the work day, it could effect African American turn-out at in the north-by-northwest voting precincts around Fisk.
