Population and infrastructure

Above: a reminder of the agricultural history of our district. As farms are sold to developers,
the resulting population increase has outpaced infrastructure growth.

A recent headline in the Nashville City Paper read, "Antioch population boom puts focus on needed infrastructure."

It seems to echo many conversations I have had with people all over District 31. Over the last decade, we have seen an increase in infrastructure, but an even larger increase in population. As we move forward, we need to focus on creating smart and balanced growth.
