November UPDATE / 11.12.19

Honoring our Korean War Veterans. 

Each year for over the past four years, our neighbor Trooper Art Couch has gathered and organized Korean War Vets for the Veterans Day Parade. Holiday Inn Vanderbilt hosts these men and women with a breakfast to fuel them for the march through Nashville. It is our small way to honor and thank these brave heroes for their service to our country.

A REMINDER: You’ll want to be a part of this.

Please join us for our first

District 23 | Partnership Council Meeting

November 12th, at 6:30 p.m.

in the Hillwood High School Library.

Our neighborhoods have common concerns and interests. Coming together and sharing resources to address those concerns makes sense.


The Neighborhood Associations that currently make up the District 23 include: Belle Meade, Hill Place, Hillwood Neighborhood Association, Warner Park Highlands, Warner Park Neighborhood Association, West Meade Conservancy, West Meade Hills, West Meade Neighborhood Association, and West Meade Park Neighborhood Association.

TOGETHER, we can do great things.

Who buys a home in a neighborhood for commercial purposes?

Business in Home | Proposed Legislation BL2019-48 allows home-based businesses to legally operate in Nashville’s residential neighborhoods. Click and read the bill.


I do not support and will not vote for this bill. Here is why.


Enforcement is problematic—for two reasons.

  1. Metro does not have the resources to monitor and enforce complaints.

  2. The bill places the burden of reporting neighbors on you—which is not fair.


An increase in business activity in our residential neighborhoods will

  1. Create traffic and parking issues

  2. Generate business/commercial signage which will hurt the look and character of our streets

Residential neighborhoods are separate and distinct from commercial areas, AND they need to remain that way. Who buys a home in a neighborhood for business purposes?


5959 Sedberry Road will be closed for approximately 2 months for a culvert replacement and water main adjustment. Public notifications will be passed out to homeowners along the route as soon as the closure permit is issued. Schools and emergency services will be notified. Anticipated Road Closure: Nov. 21 through Jan. 21
