  1. Charlotte Park/Sylvan Park/Bellevue/West Nash./Nations

    Great. Another developer trying to rename an existing neighborhood (McKissack Park). <eyeroll>
  2. Soccer in Nashville

    With Vanderbilt and two billionaires involved, I would hope there would be no Metro money in the mix.
  3. The Gulch Projects

    If it passes over a CSX line (and I'm pretty sure it does), then yes.
  4. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    No specifics have been announced yet, but it will come from a combination of several sources including: property tax, sales tax, hotel tax and wheel tax. There is an online tool available that lets you set tax rates and calcs the resulting revenue. See: https://public.tableau.com/profile/boyd.center.for.business.and.economic.research#!/vizhome/NashvilleChamber-CountyRevenueForecastModel/Forecast
  5. Nashville International Airport

    It does say Nashville AND the Deep South. That, to me, implies they are two separate things.
  6. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    As I understand it the flood wall would increase water levels on the East Bank by a half inch.
  7. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I thought Charlotte was the Queen City.?.
  8. More Accolades for Nashville

    I cannot verify. The latest Nashville-Davidson (balance) population estimate from the Census is for 2016. That value = 660,388. Nashville-Davidson (balance) has been growing (on average since 2010) by just under 10k a year. That'd put the 2017 pop right around 670k. 700k seems a bit high. The 2016 Davidson County estimate is 684k.
  9. Nashville International Airport

    Yes. In the parking garage.
  10. Nashville International Airport

    The Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ Metropolitan Statistical Area is the 12th largest in the United States with a population of 4,661,537 in 2016. Source: U.S. Census Bureau 2016 Population Estimates.
  11. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Here's a link to the online transit financing calculator created by UT: https://public.tableau.com/profile/boyd.center.for.business.and.economic.research#!/vizhome/NashvilleChamber-CountyRevenueForecastModel/Forecast My take away is that sales or property taxes will need to provide the bulk of the revenue as wheel taxes and hotel/motel taxes lack a sufficient base to generate the estimate $6B needed to fund the plan. Also, its unclear to me is to what extend the suburban counties will contribute.
  12. Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017

    $1300 for an Extended Stay on Elm Hill Pike. So, yes. Wisconsin also has this. The tourist attractions don't want to lose student workers before the end of summer. Only if they're properly registered with the city. Many are not.
  13. The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    Oxymoron.
  14. Soccer in Nashville

    I'd prefer the stadium were downtown, but the fairgrounds are acceptable. I'm OK with Metro donating land for the stadium to be built on, but would prefer they not finance the stadium itself. Let the elites backing the bid pay for it.
