On this episode of All About Nashville is Fabian Bedne, Senior Manager of Community Development for the Office of Mayor John Cooper. We talk about the recently announced Bordeaux North Nashville Participatory Budgeting unveil of the 2022 project selections. During this cycle, residents 14 years and older were eligible to vote; they cast ballots online, by mail and in person for their top five city project choices on a list of 25 potential projects. Those ideas – all of which originated from Bordeaux and North Nashville residents - were showcased at an October 12 voting expo at the Hadley-Lillard Park Community Center. Residents cast more than 3,000 votes, and the Participatory Budgeting steering committee reviewed and adopted the final results on December 15.
My second guest is a French artist from Montreal Geraldine Saucier who is visiting Nashville to play at he Bluebird Cafe and meet fellow singer/ songwriters.
