Today Mayor Karl Dean will gave opening remarks at the kickoff today for the Nashville Livability Project at the Fifty Forward Knowles Center. The Livability Project was announced in September following the report from a task force convened by Vice Mayor Diane Neighbors to study Nashville’s changing demographics. The task force developed recommendations in the areas of housing, transportation, support services, and civic engagement focused on making Nashville a livable community for retiring baby boomers and residents of all ages. Members from the Livable Communities Task Force worked together with representatives from the Mayor’s Green Ribbon Committee, Healthy Nashville Leadership Council and Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee to identify commonalities among their work and develop a plan for implementing their recommendations.
The Livable Communities Task Force report is available here.
