We stumbled across this post on William Williams’ blog recently and thought it was worth sharing. William Williams use to be one of our favorite writers for The City Paper. He now has occasional articles published there or in other local pubs such as Nashville Lifestyles, and blogs online.
The mayor announced a few months back that there would be a Hillsboro Road improvement project coming soon. Right now, most Nashvillians dread Green Hills traffic heading into and out of the general Green Hills mall area. Great retail has come to Nashville in recent years and our city now boasts a Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, West Elm, Anthropologie, among many other exciting national retailers. There have also been many condo and town home developments built past the mall. With a post office, a library, groceries, and other retail all within a two mile radius, Green Hills has urban potential. What is holding it back is its lack of sidewalks and curbs allowing pedestrian-friendly traffic.
