The Tennessee General Assembly established the Greater Nashville Regional Council (GNRC) under the Tennessee Development District Act of 1965. GNRC operates as a council of governments representing a 13-county area that includes Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Stewart, Sumner, Trousdale, Williamson, and Wilson counties. We provide a regional forum where elected officials, industry experts, community leaders, and community members can come together to discuss issues and share ideas to help solve local challenges. This setting allows for candid conversations about Middle Tennessee’s future and connects communities with resources and investments to help achieve their vision.
