Meet Antioch halfway — Nashville City Paper

August 29, 2008 — Leave a comment

At the same time, Antioch is one of the places in Metro where truly affordable housing for young, working families exists, and one of the few places left with ready interstate access and wide open green spaces for economic development. There is also a truly diverse, multi-racial and ethnic community in the area that brings richness to the city few other areas can offer.

It may not agree with the strident new urbanism crowd that dominates the dialogue in Metro government and wrings their hands about sprawl, but Antioch has a great deal to offer Nashville.

Meet Antioch halfway on Nashville City Paper.

As a resident of Antioch and someone who has been trying to organize our community, I offer a wholehearted Amen to this article in the City Paper. It is one of the few that addresses the possibilities of this place rather than rattling on about the limitations.
