Redevelopment Districts

Nashville’s redevelopment districts are established to ensure the use and long-term viability of the urban areas that they encompass.

In keeping with its mission, MDHA’s administration of the districts aims to strategically reverse disinvestment and blight and promote redevelopment that is sustainable from economic, environmental, aesthetic, public safety, and historic preservationist perspectives.

Although specific goals differ across districts, all include strategies for achieving vibrant mixes of land use, income levels, and modes of transportation.

Design Review Committee

For each redevelopment district, the Design Review Committee follows a set of basic principles to determine the appropriateness of a development project. 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.
