We must invest in our existing communities rather than continue to sprawl into rural areas. A good example of this is the revitalization of the Kroger Marketplace shopping center in Hendersonville.
We also need to focus on future mixed-use planning to encourage walk-able communities with transit options. This will allow our businesses and economy to grow, bringing in new families without the corresponding additional traffic and stress on our infrastructure and roadways. Finally we need to bring higher paying jobs to Sumner County. This will lead us to having fewer Nashville commuters and mitigate the daily rush hours.
