They have made changes to the pedestrian crosswalk pattern that pedestrians aren't paying attention to. Currently, they are testing a pattern where they stop all 4 directions at once so pedestrians can cross all at once...including diagonally. However, people haven't seem to have figured it out yet. I still see people walking in the normal pattern...which is very dangerous. I know its new, but they should have notices up on the crosswalks notifying pedestrians of the updated pattern.

Next year they are supposed to eliminate all street parking on Broadway and expand the sidewalks. That will help some. Pedestrian signage is needed as mentioned above.

Personally, I'd like to see them take a hint from Memphis and Beale Street and make Lower Broad from 5th to 1st completely pedestrian starting around 5 or 6:00 Friday nights. Then again on Saturday during certain hours. I think it'd make it much safer.

A company that focuses on hiring veterans while arranging outsourced care for veterans is planning on bringing 250 jobs to Nashville at a facility on Murfreesboro Pike. TriWest, based out of Phoenix, partners with the Department of Veterans Affairs in administering the VA Patient-Centered Community Care Program and the Veterans Choice Card benefit.

Employees at the company's call centers help veterans to schedule appointments with non-VA medical providers.

The Nashville Business Journal has come up with "Crane Watch: The Big Map of Projects" which is an interactive map of Nashville where you can see what all is under construction. For now it's just Davidson County, but they'll hopefully start including the surrounding counties soon. It's fun to play with. Right now they have 106 construction projects included on their map. If even half of the projects are completed, it will change the Nashville skyline and landscape quite dramatically.

Anyone find if someone did a Case-Shiller-type analysis of median housing vs. median income in Nashville? I'd bet that income hasn't increased a lot vs. housing prices. The last time that happened in the U.S., we saw what happened. Anyone think that's ahead for Nashville?

But you would need to factor in all the transplants who may have kept their out-of-TN salaries when they moved here.
