NEW BUSINESS

  1. Presentation of the Tennessee Downtowns Program Application.  Mayor Lothers announced that the Town of Nolensville had applied for a grant from the Tennessee Downtowns Program in November.  Although she had since been notified that Nolensville was not accepted into the state program due to a lack of economic need, Mayor Lothers gave the 30-slide presentation to the Planning Commission in hopes that the program might be developed and implemented under alternative plans.
  2. Presentation/discussion of draft Conceptual Master Plan for Town Greenway System.  Caleb Lilliard and the Trees & Trails Committee presented the plan developed to improve connectivity between Nolensville’s subdivisions, schools, Mill Creek, the Historic district and other community gathering areas.  Mayor Lothers thanked Mr. Lilliard and the Trees & Trails Committee for their work and suggested holding public workshops on the Greenway plan to obtain citizen feedback and generate local interest.
