Brentwood, TN Rejects Walkable Main Street
"Last week, accompanied by assorted explanations ranging from unknown costs to maintaining traditions, the city council cancelled a carefully developed community consensus for a town center. Brentwoods a suburb of Nashville, green, rolling, and governed by zoning rules that dictate one house per acre. Its been that way for 33 years.For a while the formula worked. But in recent years the citys tax revenue has slipped and the inevitable road congestion this development pattern produces has matured to the point of serious irritation."
