NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nashville city planners are looking into the future, trying to plan what residents want the city to look like 25 years from now.

It's part of a program called Nashville Next, and Nashville's Mayor Karl Dean hosted a kickoff event Saturday. NewsChannel 5's own Aundrea Cline-Thomas emceed the event held at the Downtown Library.

Speakers from Nashville and around the country took part in the event during a formal presentation, and they also hosted a reception next door where people wrote down the changes they want to see on sticky notes.

"The issue for us is how we move into that future; how we plan for that in a thoughtful way to make sure that our future is all that it can be," said Dean.

Nashville Next is hosting a speakers' series that lasts throughout the spring.  The program will take place over the next two years.
