Making Nashville a More Livable and Sustainable City for All

March 9, 2017

This report summarizes efforts, under Mayor Megan Berry, to make Nashville the “greenest city in the Southeast. ” The authors argue that, while recent planning by the Nashville-Davidson Metropolitan Planning Commission are likely to enhance environmental quality, more must be done to address poverty and historical inequities. Specific to climate adaptation, the report delineates how regional climate change will disproportionately impact low-income communities in Nashville, and describes how proposed initiatives can be expanded or adjusted to enhance equitable outcomes.
