    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    And this story on more interstates (lanes) and the costs that would entail. https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/tn-elections/2018/06/20/tdot-diane-blacks-transportation-infrastructure-plan-could-cost-billions/718604002/

    Interesting graphic. No more info on where the numbers come from though. Some of the replies ask some good questions.

    That commercial never fails to crack me up hahahaha #merica
  4. I don't hate it at all. I do wonder what the rest of the landscaping will look like, reminds me of a CIA black site or something like that. Very Bourne.

    Shane Smiley just air quoted "master plan" this is the guy who got into a shoving match. Rick Williams says he hopes they listen to the citizens of Nashville. Eh hm, you aren't a citizen of Davidson county, haha. The lady with the Christmas village laying down the law, says she loves that they have worked with her and her vendors, and doesn't want people talking for their group.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    "The flow of bicycle traffic improved greatly after Nørrebrogade installed the ‘green wave’, which changed traffic lights to favour cyclists. Above is before; below is after" That quote is from the last chart on the page. I can't even imagine the uproar here if the city did that. "I'm supposed to wait for people on bicycles?! I'm in a car, I will just run them over because they are in MY way!" Copenhagen is a very different city obviously but more ways to move people around besides cars should be our goal. "20th Century: How many CARS can we move down the street?" "21st Century: How many PEOPLE can we move down the street?" https://www.theguardian.com/cities/gallery/2018/jun/11/copenhagenize-case-urban-cycling-graphs

    Don’t have time to watch this tonight. But could be interesting.

    I mean we are on a Nashville development board. So we are probably going to lean waaaaay more Nashville over anyone else.

    A well thought out and rational comment. *checks for agenda* Just kidding, just kidding. CLAP CLAP CLAP!!! It took hell to make this happen. And it’s good for everyone. I’m not particularly fond of the 10 acres but damn, to make all this other stuff happen. It’s amazing!

    Kansas City is larger in the metro area by around 200k. But I would definitely say Nashville is the "hotter" city, I've not read about KC getting the NFL draft (or even in consideration), or NHL All Star game or having CMA fest, or any other number of large events that call Nashville home. Have they had big time friendlies like Nashville has had, with big attendance, I will claim ignorance on that. Having an MLS team would seem like a plus for them now, but we should have one by the time the World Cup roles around. Arrowhead is also old as all hell. (googling nosies) It was built in 1972 and doesn't seem like it has had any major upgrades besides new screens since 2009.

    "Metro is eyeing a completion in December on the new fairgrounds park, which will include eight multiuse soccer fields, a 1.3-mile greenway, a dog park and other amenities. It is set for the underutilized, flood-prone part of the fairgrounds on the site’s south end that is flanked by Brown’s Creek. Work began last year." It's reached the point of parody now. People are actively destroying and trying to hinder new construction so that they can keep buildings like this. It is beyond comprehension.

    It will be interesting when/if the new stadium, renovations to the Titans stadium come up and there is a bond issue and other things. Let's see what kinda people come out of the wood work. I'd put good money on it that it won't be a problem at all. Even if say, some deal was worked out that involved included land, like the MLS stadium. (however that hypothetical would work) Someone said it earlier, but it's starting to look like it's not even about the Fairgrounds anymore (as they are getting everything they are asking for and it's all brand new) and about the type of people that the Fairgrounds people think like soccer. I know that is the fallback argument these days when people disagree with you on something. BUT, I have no other logical answer, it seems like the votes have been there to make it happen, all the buildings will be there, you literally can't move things away from the fairground by law. What else do they want?

    I've sent a few emails/tweets/messages to the various MLS groups and I've never heard anything back from them. Surely they are seeing this stuff and realize what could happen after what happened with the transit vote??

    The Fair board I would think voted in favor of this because it's going to be a massive influx of money and renovations to the fairground. Literally every aspect of the Fairgrounds is going to get updated. I'm not sure how they could vote against it and say they were doing their job.

    I wonder when the first actual votes on demolition and all of the rezoning will take place. Has anyone read or heard anything?
