Nashville residents will have the opportunity to receive information about the city’s “Unified Flood Preparedness Plan” being developed by Metro Water Services. A series of public meetings will be held over the next 12 months to gather input from the community in the development of the plan, which will include recommended projects to reduce damages from a future flood similar to the May 2010 disaster.

In the five initial meetings, attendees will receive information about goals and objectives of the program, the planning process that has been established to identify, evaluate and select flood damage reduction solutions, and the communications plan that will be used to share information with and receive input from citizens. Everyone is encouraged to attend one of these meetings.

The meetings will be located in the four geographic quadrants of Davidson County (Northeast, Northwest, Southeast and Southwest) and downtown. However, the meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend.
