Political Conventions in Nashville
By now, you've probably seen, read, or at least heard about the proposal from the Republican party to host the 2024 Republican National Convention in Nashville.
Tonight, we will be discussing a few items that relates to this matter. CM Swope has introduced RS2022-1685 and BL2022-1387 supporting the RNC for their bid to host the 2024 convention in Nashville. An amendment has been proposed to the council for review asking the state to allow for Davidson County to impose impact fees on new construction in Nashville. There has been several back and forth conversations from political pundits throughout the entire state of Tennessee. We have received well over 200 emails from individuals that live outside of Davidson County and several hundred from local Nashvillians voicing their opinions on whether to host or oppose the RNC conventions.
This article in the NY Times gives a brief synopsis of the timeline for a decision to be made. The RNC has a goal to have the host city finalized, between Nashville and Milwaukee, by the end of this month. As I mentioned above, we will vote on the two items tonight. Please let me know what you think... Some of you have already done so, but I'd like to hear from more neighbors. Should we approve legislation that invites the RNC to host their 2024 convention in Nashville at the Music City Center?
