NashvilleNext Lounge Community Event in Antioch Monday July 21, 2014 at Harding Place YMCA

Greetings Antioch – Southeast – Percy Priest Council Members and Stakeholders!

Tifinie Capehart with the Nashville Planning Department and NashvilleNext,

The next NashvilleNext Lounge for the Antioch – Southeast – Percy Priest community will occur onMonday July 21st, at the Harding Place YMCA, 5 – 7 p.mThe lounge is an open house. During our last NashvilleNext Lounge at Antioch High School we had a very low turnout. We want to make sure the Antioch – Southeast - Percy Priest community is engaged. We’ll need your help getting the word out about next Monday.

Since 2013, more than 10,000 residents participated in NashvilleNext. The community defined a vision, guiding principles, and discussed where additional growth should occur. But we’re not done. This summer, Nashvillians will consider four different futures, or development patterns, and will select a preferred future.The preferred future will guide policy decisions moving forward, including updates to the Community Plans. Therefore, the public outreach activities this summer are crucial to the success of NashvilleNext; we need your help getting the word out. We’re doing similar targeted outreach for our other suburban communities, which are areas that have seen lower participation.

District 29 Night Out Against Crime, New Elementary School Groundbreaking, Ford Ice Center in Southeast Nashville and Early Voting

THIS YEAR DISTRICT 29 COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS HAVE DECIDED TO MOVE OUR NIGHT OUT AGAINST CRIME TO OCTOBER!

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT GIVES THIS MONTH AS AN OPTION AND I HAVE BEEN SPEAKING WITH CHIEF ANDERSON AND OTHERS IN METRO OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS TO PRESENT A RESOLUTION TO GIVE OCTOBER AS AN OPTION FOR THE CITY OF NASHVILLE FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO CELEBRATE THE NATIONAL ACTIVITIES AT THIS TIME.

DISCUSSIONS ARE ONGOING AND ONE OF THE CONCERNS WAS THAT THE MEDIA WOULD NOT COVER IT THE SAME IF IT WAS SPLIT INTO TWO DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE YEAR.

THE NATIONAL NIGHT OUT OFFICE SHARED THAT THEY HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED ANY PROBLEMS WITH MEDIA ATTENTION, HOWEVER THE CITY CAN PRESENT THIS AS AN OPTION BECAUSE IT IS RECOGNIZED ON THE NATIONAL LEVEL DUE TO OTHER CITIES AND STATES CELEBRATING IN OCTOBER.

CURRENTLY CITIES IN NEW ORLEANS, TEXAS, AND CHATTANOOGA HAVE OPENED THIS TIME OF YEAR AS AN OPTION.

WE WILL TRY IT! MORE INFORMATION WILL BE SENT OUT SOON!





Wed. 7/23 - 11:30 a.m. - groundbreaking for the new Elementary School on Smith Springs Road - park at the YMCA Camp lot and travel via air conditioned van to the site.  At a recent community meeting we were told the Board of Education will accept suggestions for a name for the school.  The school site is located in District 7 that is represented by Will Pinkston and you can contact him at will@pinkstonforschools.com





UPDATE ON HICKORY HOLLOW Construction Projects!


The new ice rinks being built for the Nashville Predators will be called Ford Ice Center and that the area surrounding the new Community Center, Park, Library and Ford Ice Center (Predators Rink) would be called "THE COMMONS."

Friday 9/12; Sat 9/13 and Sun 9/14 GRAND OPENING - FORD ICE CENTER - (Nashville Predators Ice Rinks)


PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SOUTHEAST NASHVILLE AREA EARLY VOTING SITE.  YOUR COUNCILMEMBERS Councilman Bedne, Councilwoman Dowell, Councilman Duvall, Councilman Potts, Councilman Dominy, and Councilwoman Johnson WORKED HARD TO MAKE SURE THIS SITE (Crossings Event Center, 5380 Hickory Hollow Pkwy - directly across from Freeland Chevrolet) RETURNED FOR OUR AREA.

Please help make this site a success.  When we debated at the metro council budget hearing to return this site, we were given data by the department and an at large councilman that this was the site with the lowest numbers in terms of voters of all the early vote sites in the city.

Please Southeast Neighbors, our area of the city has and will continue to receive support for major projects in this city because of you...Voting gives our area power.  Thank you.

Early Voting at this Site Begins July 26th.  Early Voting begins for Nashville July 18th. Please see the schedule below.
 


 

Nashboro Boulevard and Nashville Civil Rights Art Project Update

Please see below Notes prepared by Nashboro Master Association President Nigel Hodge from our district meeting most recently held regarding Nashboro Boulevard.  The meeting agenda back and front that was distributed is also below for those who could not make it.  Thank you.
  • Due to budget constraints, 1/2 of Nashboro Blvd. will be paved from Murfreesboro to Flintlock.  Flintlock to Bell road will be paved next year (a definitive date has not yet been set).  The total cost of this project is over $300,000.
  • The majority of the work will continue between the hours of 9a.m. - 3p.m.  Estimated completion is mid - late July.
  • Public Works will also be restriping the lines
  • In an effort to improve traffic flow and safety for vehicles & pedestrians, Metro will be adding a buffer lane/barrier between the car lane and bike lane (see attachment)
  • Back in April 2014, the traffic enginerring staff of Public Works conducted speed studies at two different locations on Nashboro Blvd.  The results showed that 85% of drivers were driving between 37mph - 38 mph.
  • Although the traffic studies indicated that the vast majority of residents are in compliance, Metro is willing to consider installing paving marking speed limits in the areas of Nashboro Blvd. most sucseptible to speeding.  The speed limit would be striped into the paving to increase visibility.
 
 
All the Best,
 
Nigel Hodge

Council Member Johnson,
Thank you for being a part of last night’s reception with Walter Hood for the Civil Rights Public Art project. The reception capped off a great day of meetings and research at the library’s Civil Rights Room. Walter is headed back to California with many new ideas and resources and a better understanding of Nashville’s Civil Rights experience.
Here is the link to the online feedback form that you requested. Anyone wishing to share information with him can so through July 25. The public is encouraged to ask questions of the artist, share memories or thoughts with the artist, and provide images or audio for the artist’s consideration as he finalizes his design for “Witness Walls”. Paper copies of the form are also available. Simply call or email me for a copy.

The July CNAP meeting is an evening meeting being hosted on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Asurion Offices, 5720 Crossings Boulevard, Antioch, TN 37013.
The program includes a report from Mr. Blanco, of Asurion. We are so excited they have come to our community. When they first came we heard they would be offering 800 new jobs and the latest word I heard is that they are actually hiring 1,100 people. Yippee!
At the meeting we will also have a report from Amanda Watson of Nashville Metro Transit Authority telling about the changes to the bus service in our area.
Additionally we will hear from Lovette Curry, Director of the Community Education Program, and our usual updates from Sgt. Taylor Schmitz of the South Precinct, someone from the Farmers Market and other news about events happening in our area.
We hope to have some of the candidates who will be on the August 7th ballot. CNAP does not endorse candidates but we want our area voters to be informed and want to help you meet the candidates.
See you on July 8th.
