Information session and community meeting to discuss new baseball stadium
The Metro Planning Department will hold an information session and community meeting to discuss the proposed new baseball stadium in Sulphur Dell (south of Jefferson/Jackson Street, west of Third Avenue North, north of Harrison Street, and east of Fifth Avenue North).
Sulphur Dell is the historic home of professional baseball in Nashville.
This event will include discussions about the stadium project, site and building design, street design, and operational impacts. Community members will have the opportunity to submit questions and comments.
The information session and community meeting will take place on Thursday, October 24, from 2 pm to 3:30 pm at the Nashville Farmers' Market, 900 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, Nashville, TN 37208.
I guess I should be pleased that they are going to have a community meeting, but can it really be a bona fide community meeting if most of the working people in the community are not free to leave work to attend at 2:00 in the afternoon?
And I am withholding judgment on what is meant by the public having the opportunity to "submit questions and comments". Hopefully, this means that the community will have influence over the development, just as it did the North Nashville and Downtown community plans. We will see.
