  1. There's 3/7 spaces leased I believe.

    The "Nashville UrbanPlanet Solves Transit" Thread

    Get me in office then. I'll gladly take the death sentence if the only thing I accomplish is getting toll roads...
  6. Exhausted yet? Tired of planes, trains, and automobiles? Sick of tracks, trax, and taxes? So are we. While the defeat of the transit referendum was not totally unexpected, especially after the disinformation campaign by the NoTax4Trax group and, to a lesser extent, the scandal created by former-Mayor Barry, the degree to which Davidson County residents said "no" was quite astounding. Many of us on the board proselytized to our friends and family and neighbors the benefits of this plan, or of any plan, to spur long-term development toward what we all think is a necessary next step in the evolution of Nashville. But that wasn't enough, and now Nashville must go back to the drawing board to find a medium ground that will appease more voters in 2020 when we can hopefully reach a better outcome. While the setback is disappointing, our engagement will continue to be important. While at the monthly meetup today, a great deal of time was spent discussing what didn't work, and the negatives that turned voters off the plan. Costs, areas served, voter confusion about funding, and the tunnel were all topics discussed. What also was discussed, however, is that we must keep working toward a solution. Half jokingly, this thread was discussed. How can UrbanPlanet Nashville contribute to solving the Nashville Transit dilemma? Many of us attended the Nashville nMotion meetings and voiced opinions there, as did other Nashvillians. However those that attended likely were already pro-transit voters. What we'd like this thread to be is, separate from the main transit thread, a collection of ideas that could be actionable items toward finding a long term plan for the city. We get lots of input here, and as always, play nice. We do think there are some great minds here with valuable input. With Mark's ability to connect with people in high places, maybe some of the ideas presented here make it to people that matter. Either way... UP Nashville - solve our transit problem!

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    The ITN site you couldn't get to load is the stacked-interstate loop plan that would cost asinine amounts more than what was just voted down...

    The Gulch Projects

    Went to Pins Mechanical in Columbus last week. This is something we have needed for a long time, and it's a really, truly cool place. Scale be damned, I expect us to have a UP meetup there once complete!

    Yes, the estimates as we have seen include a percentage to account for unexpected spending or lapse in funding.

    The FAA didn't approve Signature Tower in it's 1,065' form. They're not going to approve of autonomous flying taxies.
