Green Hills Walkability Holiday Event

People from all over Nashville come to Green Hills to do their Shopping. The biggest issue with coming to this area to shop is dealing with the automotive congestion. Most people will drive from one parking lot to the next even if when a desired store is less then a tenth of a mile away. The reason most people will drive between stores is because the pedestrian infrastructure is lacking, it is unenjoyable and even dangerous to walk in this area.

With this project, TURBO is creating a fun, festive, and safe environment for shoppers to walk between the Green Hills Mall and Hill Center.

Shade Parade Founder, Stacy Dorris, lead a walk around Green Hills. They met at Whole Foods Cafe and toured the walkable and not-so-walkable areas of the commercial district as part of the Nashville Jane's Walks

Jane's Walk is a movement of free, citizen-led walking tours inspired by Jane Jacobs. The walks get people to tell stories about their communities, explore their cities, and connect with neighbors.

For this event TURBO painted a crosswalk at the busy intersection of Hillsboro Circle and Hillsboro Drive to protect pedestrians crossing for the walk and to illustrate the importance of crosswalks in this area. 

Green Hills Park Fest 

In conjunction with the Alliance For Green Hills we created renderings to show the community at their movie in the park night what changes could be made to make their neighborhood a more walkable place.
