For each redevelopment district, the Design Review Committee follows a set of basic principles to determine the appropriateness of a development project. To view these principles or a map of Nashville’s redevelopment districts, click on the links below.

MDHA has also adopted guidelines for the design and placement of signage in redevelopment districts.

For some redevelopment districts, guidelines have been adopted that are tailored to foster particular architectural forms and development patterns in some of Nashville’s urban neighborhoods.

The Design Review Committee meets at 9 a.m. on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 35 Peabody Street. Submittals for MDHA Design Review are due by 4 p.m. two Wednesdays prior to the Tuesday review meeting beginning in 2022.
