The Nashville Business Coalition invites you to the Metro Council Forum at The Westin Nashville on Wednesday, November 30 at 7 am. Much is happening with the Metro Council recently and the Nashville Business Coalition wants you to be informed as new issues develop. We’ve asked Vice Mayor David Briley along with other Metro Council members to discuss the hot issues facing “It City” in 2017. Moderated by NBC Board Member, James Weaver, you won’t want to miss the chance to experience Nashville’s newest event venue and join in this lively conversation.
David Briley, Vice Mayor
Jim Shulman, Councilman At Large
Steve Glover, District 12
Tanaka Vercher, District 28
Angie Henderson, District 34
James Weaver – Waller
Areas of discussion will include:
Lead, follow or get out of the way? – the appropriate role of the 2015-2019 Metro Council.
State/Local relations – Does our Council care what the state legislature thinks or does
Downzoning/landowner rights – Can a landowner feel secure that zoning upon which they relied in making their investment will be the zoning into the future?
Transit – Where? When? How much? Who pays?
Workforce mandates – Are project labor agreements the next “IT” thing in the “IT” city
Inclusionary zoning & affordable/workforce housing – How do you stimulate supply without adversely impacting continued growth?
