When we get more details, we’ll definitely let you know all about the specifics. You don’t have to wait to buy tickets, though, since they’re already on sale at the event website. The event will be held at Marathon Music Works, 1402 Clinton St., so you can go ahead and start making plans!

    Big Day for Nashville Beer Lovers: Nuit Belge and Predators Fest Both Fall on June 23
    I know the beer festival calendar gets crowded every summer, but it looks like two of the biggest events of the beer-drinking year - the Nashville Predators Craft Beer Festivaland Nuit Belge - both fall on June 23 this year. Fortunately, the events don't overlap as the Preds are serving during the day and Nuit Belge is at night.

um…about the budget…

227 15th Avenue North

    um...about the budget...
    May 11, 2018 The proposed FY19 Metro budget has been out for ten days now...and it's not good...and this is just the first year of a multi-year problem. The quick top line summary is that the proposed budget would renege on legislation passed last June for employee cost of living increases and gives our schools only $5 million of the approximately $45 million that MNPS asked for.

    TIF step-by-step
    May 7, 2018 With the budget crunch this year, many people are asking legitimate questions about when and how tax increment financing (TIF) is used. Some of those conversations are getting bogged down in trying to understand exactly how TIF dollars flow. This post is not about the important questions of how and when to use TIF.

    Storm has been brewing for a while...
    May 5, 2018 People in Nashville are understandably angry about having a tight budget in boom times. But this storm has been brewing for a while. During the 2015 election season, one of the things that voters all around the county wanted to talk about most was "how come I've got problems in my part of town and we spend all that money downtown?"

    Transit/Affordability - April 16 Update
    April 16, 2018 This is my next update about how affordability will interact with transit-oriented development in Nashville. This post is a little (a lot??) wonky - sorry about that. If you need orientation on the issues, it might be helpful to read my two previous posts here and here.

Transit/Affordability Taskforce Update

    Transit/Affordability Taskforce Update
    April 11, 2018 About 5 weeks ago, I wrote about the status of Metro implementing the recent Transit & Affordability Taskforce recommendations related to affordable housing. You can read that post here. Since then, on March 20, I sent a letter to the Metro Planning Commission expressing concerns about the pending Donelson Transit Oriented Development legislation.

    On eve of his inauguration, Fisk University's Kevin Rome wants a renewed focus on the school's students
    CLOSE Growing up, Fisk University President Kevin Rome wanted to be what he saw on television - a lawyer or a judge. "But I didn't really realize what a lawyer did," Rome said. Rome grew up in Columbus, Georgia in a single parent family. He was the first in his family to attend college.
