Good morning, Nashville. In light of all the hoopla surrounding the convention center these days, Mayor Dean is forming a new 9-member Convention Center Authority to handle the project since MDHA seems to be lacking a bit in the oversight department.

If the project ever makes it through the Metro Council for approval, we’ll be looking at a groundbreaking in the spring.
