The New District 31

On April 12, the Metro Council unanimously approved the recommended plan of redistricting; all that's left to make it final is for Mayor Dean to sign off. Our District 31 was split up, divided by Nolensville Road, with new District 4 to the West and new 31 to the East. As a result, some former District 31 candidates are now District 4 candidates, including Banks, Petron and Canterbury.

The revised District 31 boundaries are shown above; you can click here or on the map for a closer look. The Planning Department's redistricting web page has a broader, countywide map, as well as PDF closeups of each new district.

My family and I have lived in District 31 for so long, and we have history here, so I'm glad the "new" 31 is still our district. Planning did a great job taking all the different suggestions from people across Nashville and putting them into a workable plan.
