    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

227 15th Avenue North

    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.

    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.

In the staged video, the two women sit at a table outside Deja Vu on Church Street and 15th Avenue and advertise a $1,100 AR-15 and a $15 fully-clothed couch dance. When a man approaches them, he acts surprised that he needs no background check to purchase the gun in a private transfer.
