Now that North Nashville is gentrified he's going to engage the people of North Nashville to right the wrong?

Well, Cooper has only been mayor for two years. And it's not like he can do this unilaterally

I absolutely love the intentions here, but this seems like an odd spot for this project to me if reconnecting the neighborhood is really the primary goal.  Are they actually reconnecting any of the street grid?  It doesn't really look like it based on the rendering... in fact this park looks somewhat difficult to access?  I mean look at what immediately surrounds the park.  Is there a big need to reconnect those seven houses with the empty lots on the other side?  This location would make more sense if it was directly adjacent to Fisk, but I understand that would require acquiring that row of properties.  

I already was too freakin' wordy (so what's new?), with my take on the land bridge proposal(s).

North Nashville's old-school grid already was rife with misalignments a century ago in almost every sub-community throughout the district in subject.  This not to say the same doesn't apply with other parts of the city's old urban core.  I agree with your statement in general about connectivity., particularly with respect to street access patterns.  And the purported objective would be made far more impactful, if consideration were given to engineering some changes to the street array as a whole, not just the localized areas immediately adjacent to the proposed land bridges.  Not even the park itself  (a designated space on each of the two air-rights platforms proposed) would seem a useful asset without some more integrated approach to collateral planning.

More too little too late politics.   This has nothing to do with the people that were wronged.

what is your solution- not a rhetorical question, honestly curious. 

 

 

What "solutions" were presented?  How does the mayor's plan "right the wrong" for the people that were wronged?

It is kind of like putting a band aid on an amputated leg (sorry for the gruesome analogy). But maybe it's the start of a larger process of restitution....

I'm getting the feeling that several "caps" or just bridges to reconnect many of those streets would do more for that area than a park. 

But there is still a ton of risk of major gentrification after better connectivity which needs to be looked at. 

Perhaps a more punitive tax for new homebuyers when buying from an individual or family who has lived in an area for generations.
