Proposed apartment freeze gaining attention (Link Roundup)

A proposal by three Antioch-area council members is gaining traction. Karen Johnson, Tanaka Vercher, and Jacobia Dowell, all of whom represent Antioch in the Metro Council are proposing a four-month freeze on new apartment construction in the Antioch area.

The proposal is gaining a great deal of attention in the Nashville media.
