I began my first day meeting with Metro Parks Greenway representatives in identifying areas in our district that we can enhance for walking and also areas for our pets. How exciting. I look forward to sharing with you information where we can work together to make our district the most desirable area in Davidson County to live.

Education, shopping to mix at Hickory Hollow mall By Joe Morris Updated 11:07AM


It’s been written off, even making its way onto a website chronicling dying shopping centers. But Hickory Hollow Mall isn’t finished yet.
An exodus of anchor tenants and smaller retailers in the last decade, coupled with negative coverage due to alleged gang activity on and around the premises, spooked shoppers and led to empty parking spaces.
In the last 12 months, however, the facility’s fortunes have taken a decided turn for the better, albeit in a bumpy fashion. After a few stops and starts, Metro Nashville is moving into the site in a big way, and Nashville State Community College is heading a multi-pronged educational component for other portions of the mall.

Over the summer, Hamilton Creek Apartments in District 29 held an art camp for “at risk kids “ages 5-13, where 23 children participated in the completion of a mural, “Young Voices, Big Visions,” led by the well-known Nashville artist, Jairo Prado. The project took place over a three-week period; with the focus of the mural being a reflection of the youth in their present community as well as their future self-portraits in the community. The children who participated in the summer camp and their families were also able to tour the Frist Center on Saturday, August 27, through an outreach partnership.
