New Plans Unveiled For Riverfront Development

NASHVILLE - A new $40 million plan to improve Nashville's riverfront was unveiled to the public Wednesday night.

The public met to learn more about the ideas. Architects want to increase Riverfront Park from 2 acres, to 120 acres. It's all to bring more people down to the riverfront.

The architects at Nashville's Civic Design center are behind the plan. Architects came up with a 5-year plan they say is realistic.

"We went away in the last month and tried to figure out how we could improve the riverfront without any major impacts or acquisitions, moving rail lines or streets or utilities," says architect Gavin McMillan.

It could be several months before leaders seriously consider the Riverfront development plan.
