Synthesis drawings following second community meeting, by Civic Design Center staff.

Deli and Salem AME Church, on 4th Avenue North and Buchanan Street, to larger churches in Germantown and Buena Vista.

5. Proximity to and views of downtown. Like the Werthan Bag facilit , the presence and promi- nence of downtown and its skyline is an orienting feature for community residents. Buena Vista is Spanish for ‘good view.’

6. Options. Using slides of other Nashville neighborhoods, examples of alternative design strategies were discussed, including the design of Jefferson Street, the design of highways and neigh-

borhoods, and the design of streets that were terminated because of new road construction.

From these focus areas, community members generated a second list of issues and opportunities.

In addition to the large community meetings, staff discussed the future of the study area with other community members. The Center met with local developers, such as Scott Chambers of Germantown Partners, L.L.C., Louise McClellan of the Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Church Community Development Corporation, and Anita Sheridan, Stephen McRedmond, and Helen Nagy of the Nuehoff properties. The Center spoke frequently with neighborhood leaders like Michael Emrick, Earnest and Berdelle Campbell, and William Webb.
