“I know Gallatin residents have opinions about how the city should grow – they share their likes and dislikes with me all the time,” Mayor Paige Brown said. “PLAN GALLATIN is an organized process to collect all ideas and determine what the city will put in its blueprint for growth. Now is the time for everyone to share their vision.” Gallatin is growing by an average of 270 people a month. If this rate of growth continues, the city’s population could reach 70,000 by 2045. PLAN GALLATIN offers an all-inclusive approach to analyzing the impact of growth while capturing the needs and desires of our citizens. Input you provide during the PLAN GALLATIN process will guide land use, development, recreation, public safety, infrastructure, jobs and more. Lawn Party 2019 is the first opportunity for the public to map their experiences, learn about existing projects, and plan for future investment.

The City of Gallatin has partnered with the Greater Nashville Regional Council to help facilitate PLAN GALLATIN. This is the same group that assisted the city to develop the first Gallatin Strategic Plan adopted by the City Council last summer. PLAN GALLATIN is the next step of a blueprint that will set the goals for 15 years. The intent is for the City to continuously adapt the blueprint to changing population and development trends.
