The Alliance for Green Hills Presents First-Ever Transportation Summit

Event will shed light on traffic solutions for Green Hills neighborhood

NASHVILLE On Saturday, February 25, the Alliance for Green Hills will present its inaugural Transportation Summit from 10am to 12pm. The event will take place at Lipscomb University’s Stowe Hall, and is free and open to the public.

The purpose of the Summit is twofold: first, to examine current transportation patterns across the Green Hills area, and second, to focus on plans and projects that address traffic issues.

For many Nashvillians, when they think about Green Hills, they think about traffic,” says Ed Cole, President of the Alliance for Green Hills. “At the Alliance, we see this as an opportunity to change the conversation. We believe if we bring the right people together, Green Hills can be an example of innovative transportation solutions in Nashville. The Summit will build on previous efforts and serve as a good step in that direction.”

Summit discussions will include the results of the traffic and transportation survey conducted by the Alliance which resulted in over 950 responses. The program will feature experts from the office of Mayor Megan Barry as well as Metro and state organizations charged with improving transportation in Nashville. During the Summit, Doug Delaney, Senior Supervising Planner at professional services firm WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, will present a brand new visualization of traffic in Green Hills that will generate productive conversations about real-world solutions.
