Mayor Barry’s Office of Resilience, Metro Water Services, and area Council Members invite the public to learn how Metro is creating a citywide resilience strategy to ensure that the city is prepared to thrive and meet our biggest challenges. This series of community workshops will gather public input on issues and the proposed Countywide Flood Protection Plan.
Every year on May 1, we mark the anniversary of a natural disaster that devastated Nashville, mourned 11 lives lost, saw $2 billion in damage, and ultimately brought our community closer together. Out of the rain that fell that day – 13.5 inches in 36 hours – was born a greater resiliency, an engaged citizenry and stronger social cohesion.
