East Thompson Community (ETC) is one of Nashville’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, located just southeast of downtown and a zip away from the airport. Our enthusiastic community is working together to make ETC one of the best places for Nashvillians to live, work, and play. We hope you grow to love this neighborhood as much as we do.
