Top 10 Nashville Area Transit Recommendations from @NashChamber for @NMobile2016

1. Use the most comprehensive and far reaching of the three scenarios in nMotion’s strategic transit plan as a starting point for developing a bold, regional plan.

2. Design transit projects between Nashville and surrounding communities such as Clarksville, Franklin, Gallatin, Lebanon and Murfreesboro so that they can be upgraded to high-capacity transit, such as rail, in the future. This probably would mean dedicated lanes on major corridors.

3. Urge Mayor Megan Barry’s office to develop a plan for downtown transit access by the end of 2016 that includes all modes of mobility.

4. Recommend that public agencies prioritize transit projects based on community’s projected density and land-use policies.

5. Include a direct, light rail connection between downtown Nashville and the Nashville International Airport.

6. Encourage the state of Tennessee, Middle Tennessee’s mayors and other stakeholders to continue exploring the relocation of the Radnor Yard rail facility located near the 100 Oaks Mall area and owned by CSX.

7. Request the state of Tennessee create an Office of Public-Private Partnerships.

8. Ask the Regional Transit Authority and the Transit Alliance of Middle Tennessee to hold public discussion of transit planning in each county surrounding Nashville at least twice per year.

9. Request that the upcoming Nashville Metropolitan Planning Organization regional technology study identify the capital and operational costs of installing an “intelligent transportation system” in each city and county in the region.

10. Recommend Metro Transit Authority/Regional Transit Authority include strategies for incorporating autonomous vehicles into the nMotion plan, including in each city and county in the transit system.

Paula Deen's Savannah Style

With its lush gardens, stately town houses, and sprawling plantations, Savannah is the epitome of old Southern style, and who better to give you the grand tour than Paula Deen, the city’s most famous resident and anointed Queen of Southern Cuisine?

In this gorgeous, richly illustrated book, Paula Deen shares a full year of Southern living. Whether it’s time to put out your best china and make a real fuss, or you’re just gathering for some sweet tea on the porch at dusk, Savannah style is about making folks feel welcome in your home. With the help of decorator and stylist Brandon Branch, you’ll learn how to bring a bit of Southern charm into homes from Minnesota to Mississippi.

For each season, there are tips on decorating and entertaining. In the spring, you’ll learn how to make the most of your outdoor spaces, spruce up your porch, and make your garden inviting. In the summer, things get more casual with a dock party. Sleeping spaces, including, of course, the sleeping porch, are the focal point of this chapter. In the fall, cooler weather brings a return to more formal entertaining in the dining room, and in the winter, attention returns to the hearth, as Paula and her neighbors put out their best silver and show you how they celebrate the holidays.

Paula loves getting a peek at her neighbors’ parlors, so she’s included photographs of some of Savannah’s grandest homes. From the vast grounds of Lebanon Plantation to the whimsically restored cottages on Tybee Island, you’ll see the unique blend of old-world elegance and laid-back hospitality that charmed Paula the moment she arrived from Albany, Georgia, with nothing but two hundred dollars and a pair of mouths to feed. And she isn’t shy about giving you a window into her own world, either. From her farmhouse kitchen to her luxurious powder room, you’ll see how Paula lives when she’s not in front of the camera.

Packed with advice and nostalgia, Paula Deen's Savannah Style, makes it easy to bring gracious Southern living to homes north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Paula Deen was born and raised in Albany, Georgia. She later moved to Savannah, where she and her two sons, Bobby and Jamie, started the Bag Lady catering company. The business took off and evolved into The Lady & Sons Restaurant, which is located in Savannah's historic district and specializes in Southern cooking, as well as Uncle Bubba's Seafood, which co-owns with her brother.
