NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell has officially signed his first executive orders on Friday.

The orders, according to O’Connell’s office, address a range of topics like infrastructure, transportation, criminal justice and more.

In total, he signed 44 executive orders — 23 of them from previous mayors were sustained, and 21 were updated with modifications.

“Highlights include an expansion of Metro’s Green and Complete Streets policy (Executive Order 45) and establishment of the Nashville Health and Well-being Leadership Council (Executive Order 32), which is a new collaboration between Metro Public Health Department and Metro Social Services that leverages the connection between health outcomes and social service needs to inform policy,” his office said.

O’Connell’s update to the Green and Complete Streets policy continues the work toward developing a transportation network to promote mobility for Nashvillians of all ages and abilities.

“A complete street network is the backbone of a more livable and resilient city,” O’Connell said. “Simply put, our streets should feel safe, comfortable, and convenient for all Nashvillians – pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and drivers. Complete streets provide opportunities to build Nashville’s multimodal network and ensure that it is aligned with our land use policies, zoning recommendations, and urban design principles.”
