How many people on here are age 18 or above, live within the city limits, and would be interested in supporting a professional proposal to Metro Council with some of our ideas? It wouldn't be that hard to write up a report, go to Kinkos to get some professional slides, and send an enhanced transit proposal to the city for example. I feel we'd need to emphasize differences in zoning and tax law to encourage urban housing and business growth though. You can't have one without the other.

We could begin getting signatures if some of you are interested to show support for this type of idea.

We have several groups like that in Birmingham such as the ONB and Catalyst.

Catalyst is especially cool as it is geared to young students and urban professionals who are progressive and seek change in the city.

Check it out, you might like what you see:

You guys enjoy yourselves. I'll stick with the existing urban stategists and organizations. They'll save me light years of work by what they've already done.

I suggest attending the Urban Design meetings. If they don't do it for you, I'm sure there will be many others to choose from. I'm sure the members can direct you. Your ideas will be welcome, but it's a bit late for a grassroots kind of effort. The planning organizations are on overdrive right now. Jump in, have fun.

Hey, I do that too. I attend every scheduled ONB Breakfast and City Center master plan meeting.

It's really easy when they take place across the street from where you live :lol:

I'm fifteen, and I live in Dickson County, so I'm not eligible.

Well screw this idea.

If I knew of an urban design public meeting that happened on times that worked with my schedule, and had other people to go with I might consider it.
