""Whatever our place, it has been visited by the stranger, it will never be new again. It is only the vision that can be new; but that is enough."

Eurdora Welty,

"Place in Fiction"


The Plan of Nashville is a community-based vision of how the urban core of Nashville should look and work in the twenty-first century. The purpose is to help the central city hold its place in civic life. Since Nashville assumed a metropolitan form of government--merging the city and county--there have been more than a hundred plans that dealt with some aspect of the center city. This plan is different.

The Plan of Nashville, written and edited by Christine Kreyling, is available through Amazon. Click here to purchase a copy.
