  1. If there wasn't demand for parking downtown, would any development include it? From an idealist point of view, I get what you are saying -- that why should something in this dense part of downtown have to include parking? But the argument you are making -- about the freedom of choice -- is it not the developer's choice to include parking? And is not not the freedom of the residents of the development to choose if they utilize parking? When there are enough amenities downtown to justify a non-car lifestyle, then you will see more people choosing to live a non-car lifestyle. I d
  2. I'm certain that someone got their point across and changed somebody's mind, though. Had to. Otherwise we wouldn't keep having the same damn arguments over and over again.
  3. Yay! More nonsense not about Nashville Bits And Pieces!
  4. I do have the list of Census tracts I used. I don't think there were any major changes to this area since 2010 (in terms of tract geography), but they did split some of the downtown/midtown tracts, so beware! I think the old downtown tract was split into 3 parts (195). In numerical order: 117, 118, 119, 126, 133, 134, 135, 136, 138, 139, 142, 143, 144, 148, 160, 161, 162, 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168, 169, 170, 192, 193, 194.01, 194.02, 195.01, 195.02, 195.03
  5. It's totally okay to not respond to every political post made here. There are many times I choose not to respond to something, even if I strongly disagree with it, because it will derail the topic. It becomes back-and-forth bickering; doesn't typically involve Nashville specifically, doesn't typically result in any sort of common understanding or compromise, and often results in some name-calling or other inappropriate board behavior. So please, I urge all of you of all political persuasions, the next time someone says something you disagree with (at least on a national or glo
  6. Soooo.....I got busy with the map and the Census tracts. Caveat: The Census tracts do not match the map lines exactly, but they are pretty close. Close enough to make some approximations. The tracts are also listed in land area to 1/10th of a square mile, so over the 60+ tracts sampled, there may be some rounding differences. All in all, I think it's a pretty good snapshot -- and I was actually pleasantly surprised. 1952 Nashville boundary - 24.2 sq mi - 117,752 population (2020) - 4,865.8 ppsm <----notice that the source I linked had the 1950 Nashville land area at 22.0 sq
  7. 1. I have been looking for a comprehensive one for quite a while. I haven't had a chance to look, but I'm wondering if there might be something in the Nashville Room at the Main Library downtown. 2. Without the map, it is tough to give anything other than a rough guess. I am going to attempt to use the 2020 Census Tracts to line up with the map that @BnaBreakerposted. I can tell you this....the density is probably going to be a lot lower than you think. I found a link that gives the population, area, and density to the top 100 US cities through history. Nashville was actually pretty dens
  8. What say me? I'm a conservative. Stop being an ass.
  9. It has to do with commuting patterns, primarily...and the problem with Clarksville/Montgomery is that the base is on the wrong side of town... Clarksville may eventually join the CSA, but I think it will take the area from Joelton to Pleasant View to Sango really blowing up before it happens. As for Shelbyville....I think there are a lot of commuters to Murfreesboro. Just like commuters from Marshall and Lawrence Counties are going to Columbia and sometimes Franklin.
  10. Tennessee Primary Statistical Areas With County Breakdown CSA = Combined Statistical Area (multiple statistical areas with a common economic or social linkage) MSA = Metropolitan Statistical Area (areas with an urban core of at least 50,000 that share an economic linkage) μSA = Micropolitan Statistical Area (areas with an urban core of between 10-50,000 that share an economic linkage) Area - 2020 Census Count - numerical change - percentage change Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro, TN CSA - 2,118,233 - +354,489 - +20.01% -Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, TN MSA - 1,989,519 -
  11. Go look at the Census and show me which cities grew by 200k over the last decade. Cities proper, not metros.
