Mark your argument just doesn't hold up for Metro Nashville. The school board here has approved several charter schools. They decided to deny one charter based on what I think is sound reasoning, and all of a sudden you say they are denying choice? Taking away local control of charters from school boards is not conservative and it's not good for public education.
The Lake Street Drive version is much better! Dig this singer.
@gast: Because historic buildings are important to people, they contribute to our quality of life in Nashville, and when treated properly in the context of zoning regs they encourage economic development. Any more questions?
From a historic preservation perspective, the "upzoning" part of the plan is controversial because it could encourage the demolition of historic buildings. Take one of the few old four-square houses that remain in the area and rezone the parcel it's on for a highrise. You've drastically increased the value of that property and encouraged the owner to demolish the historic building. That's why Nashville needs to take its time on this and get the UDO guidelines correct (with exemptions or a review process for building older than 50 years of age) before going forward.
Suck it Austin!
Um, nothing against them but none of those bands (except Yonder Mtn., kinda) play bluegrass music. At all. A banjo does not a bluegrass band make. Raleigh is not a music destination city in any way (has it produced any bands to speak of since Whiskeytown?). I bet they'll have a hard time matching the numbers they drew in Nashville, even if our old convention center is a crappy location. Good luck IBMA, but I think you're making a mistake.
