Metro Council meeting to include talk on Amp, Google Fiber

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Metro Council has a full agenda for its meeting Tuesday evening, including a proposal for a zoning overlay in the Sylvan Park neighborhood.

Several other high-profile items are scheduled for a public hearing.

The council will hear comments on the mayor's budget and capital plan for next year.

People will also get to weigh in on the city's plan to join the Google Fiber expansion as well as plans for a cultural heritage overlay district in the downtown area.

And a controversial resolution on the Amp rapid bus transit project is also on the agenda. It would ask the state legislature to set up a dedicated funding source for mass transit through fees or taxes.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the council chamber in the Historic Metro Courthouse, located at One Public Square downtown.
