Nashville Neighborhood Conducts Car-Free Experiment
"One Nashville neighborhood is pledging to leave their cars in the driveway, or curbside," reports Scott Harrison. "The Nations Neighborhood Association is launching its 'Don’t Car Campaign' starting this weekend. More than 30 members of the West Nashville neighborhood will go without their cars from Sept. 19 to Sept. 25."
Harrison quotes Jamie Brown, a member of the Nations Neighborhood Association board to explain the reasoning behind the car-free campaign, which is a response to increased residential density in the neighborhood. According to Brown's explanation, developers have touted the walkability of the neighborhood as more and more units have come online. The neighborhood's residents are testing the concept. "Those participating in the campaign will also be documenting their experiences," adds Harrison.
