The Nashville Downtown Partnership is a non-profit management organization whose core purpose is "to make downtown Nashville the compelling urban center in the Southeast in which to live, work, play and invest."
Over the past year, the Partnership focused on these products:
- Implement remote shuttle program
- Increase on-street parking
- Improve access to the existing downtown parking system
- Change negative perceptions of downtown that create barriers to development
- Fill the vacant commercial space
- Increase the residential base, and
- Renew the Central Business Improvement District (CBID).
Through annual assessments of privately owned properties within the CBID, at least $1.3 million is added to downtown revitalization. The Partnership administers all CBID services, including additional clean and safe programs. In February, 2007, the Metro Council extended the CBID term through 2017, in response to petitions from 58% of the total property owners.
