I’ll Believe It When I See It

There are new pictures in the Tennessean this morning about last night’s meeting to discuss redevelopment along the east bank of the river.

I enjoy looking at pictures of hypotheticals (this is why I bought The Plan of Nashville), but reality tells me none of this will ever happen. And, what may happen will pale in comparison to what should have happened.

I’m still waiting.

    Probably so, Sam, but I think it’s fun to imagine. How amazing would either of those riverfronts be?

    The good news in my opinion is that the days of industrial blight on the riverfront are, hopefully, numbered…

    I love how their website is incomplete!

    I attended the first hour or so of that meeting, and what I can tell you is that they are incredibly well organized. As an analyst in my professional life, I tend to be critical of sloppy analysis; this was some very well-researched and well-presented stuff. If anything stands a chance of convincing those who need to be convinced that this is the right thing to do, these guys’ work may be just the thing to do it.

    So feel free to keep a healthy dose of skepticism, but also know that there is a good chance we’re about to see Nashville commit to at least a 10-year plan of improvement for its riverfront.
