Storyville Gardens? 

No not Storyville, that's for sure!

 

Back to the sidewalks though, if Metro had a sidewalk plan in all of the Urban Services Area, then we would not need an in-lieu process. The developers would be required to build the sidewalk to be tied in with the master sidewalk plan at some later date. The sidewalk plan for the Nations did not even appear before last year or it may have been year before last. 

This plan needs to be set in place ASAP and the in-lieu program needs to be ended because it does not work, and the amount that Metro collects will never equal the amount that it will cost to put the sidewalk in. If it does continue the fee should be a triple fee. You guys think I am always pro-developer on here and I am not. They need to pay their fair share, just like they should not be allowed to close the sidewalks during construction. I am not pro-Metro either. I take a commonsense approach to this stuff, and I am PRO Taxpayer. You guys are the ones getting screwed in these deals. 

The Soccer Stadium deal was pushed through with no parking or sidewalk plan in place. Complaints are starting to come in right and left now. The blame is on Colby, The Mayor, The Fairground Commision, The Council, and the Soccer organization for seeing this happen. Everyone wanted this deal, and we all knew it was going to be a big problem that was going to get a lot worse. 

 

We can continue this on the transportation thread.

I don't think the in-lieu portion of the sidewalk bill is the Nation's major problem (though it's not helping). I think it was just bad timing for the neighborhood and there was no sidewalk requirement at all until a large portion of the new builds had already happened. It was even called out for that in the Walk Bike Nashville news post celebrating the bill's passing.

 

 

I've seen large sections of streets with new construction and the sidewalks are still very spotty, is WBN staying on them about this?

 

Edit: I will ask over in the transpo thread!

I have been wondering about this one. If anyone ever moves into this apartment I would be curious to know if the top level corridors have natural light coming in from those clerestory windows.

Sidewalks are finally being built along the northern end of 51st Ave N in the Nations. As has been pointed out before, this was somehow declared a "complete street" a few years ago despite not having any sidewalks from Kentucky to Centennial. Glad this is finally happening, but not sure why it is only on the eastern side of the street.

Yeah, that makes sense, but there's already a (probably slightly safer) crossing for Centennial on the western side, and there's existing sidewalk or sidewalk-like pavement on the western side of 51st except the half block occupied by GreenLeaf. They just finished installing the double-wide sidewalk in front of the bomb building (5101 Kentucky), but it just ends after that. Sidewalks should obviously be on both sides of the road, but this just seemed like the harder way out unless I guess GreenLeaf was absolutely refusing to allow a sidewalk.
