GO TO A MEETING: Metro Council decides fate of MLS stadium at Fairgrounds Nashville

Where:Â David Scobey Council Chambers, Metro Courthouse, 1 Public Square
Last month,Â Metro Council moved forwardÂ with two ordinances related to the Major League Soccer Stadium planned for the Fairgrounds Nashville. Following a four-hour public hearing last Monday night, Metro Council advanced 20-9 the rezoning of 10 acres at the Fairgrounds Nashville thatÂ would support a mixed-use project planned near the proposed soccer stadium.
Now that the rezoning ordinance passed second reading, the council will take a final vote on all three ordinances, along with a resolution that authorizes $50 million in general obligation bonds related to the stadium, on Tuesday, Sept. 4.
