2020 Updates

Online Workshop with City Councilors and Planning Commissioners- November 18, 2020 at 6 PM

Hosted online by the City of Gallatin Planning Department, this workshop provided an opportunity for the City Council and Planning Commission to review and discuss a general framework for developing the land use policy and design guidelines that will be incorporated into the PlanGallatin document. This informational workshop served as a foundation for ongoing conversations with Councilors and Commissioners as elements of the plan are drafted.

 

PlanGallatin Drafting is Underway!

The City of Gallatin Planning Department is engaged with regional planners from the Greater Nashville Regional Council to 1) synthesize all the public input received so far in the PlanGallatin process, 2) continue discussions with City of Gallatin Department Heads to understand their goals and needs, and 3) to create a cohesive first draft of the PlanGallatin document.

Emerging Themes

You spoke, we listened! Over the last year the City has held several public events to engage area residents, businesses, and workers in a conversation about Gallatin's future. In addition, more than 1200 individuals have completed online surveys to share their expectations for the growth of the city.  The following six themes, or general expectations, have emerged from this input.
