The west Nashville community plan would protect existing neighborhoods from becoming the drive-through spaces that building bridges to Bells Bend would produce. The Metro planner in charge of the community plan, Anita McCaig, is not answering e-mail queries regarding Planning's preferential treatment for May Town developer Tony Giarratana over the expectations of west Nashville residents.
The community plan had already been bumped off a May agenda due to CM Lonell Matthews' rushed introduction of the MTC proposal.
UPDATE: Metro Planning spokesperson Craig Owensby responds to this post by saying:
The West Nashville Community Plan was never on the consent agenda - we don't do that with community plan updates.
LATER UPDATE: A Hillwood leader claims that Planners told one of their gatherings that the West Nashville Community Plan would be put on the consent agenda at the Planning Commission meeting.
