63 Recognize Importance of Pro-active Leveraging In order for Nashville to capture its market potential, there is a need for more pro-active efforts Master planning (versus a focus on sites) Zoning is a reactive tool. A need for pro-active measures beyond zoning. Pro-active policies, negotiation & engagement with the private sector Pro-active Urban Design and Infrastructure investments to enhance identity Partnerships to enable financing (e.g., parking) Design and infrastructure elements as linkages between individual sites Branding & identity marketing
