Brush Pick up next week

Brush collection begins on September 23, If you have brush for pick up have it on the curb by 7am on Tuesday.

Next collection time is December 10 2014.

“Residents in Metro Nashville’s Urban and General Services Districts have their brush and yard waste collected four times a year on a rotation schedule along 12 routes. Instead of chippers, Metro Public Works uses knuckle boom trucks equipped with a mechanical arm that lifts brush piles up and into a trailer that’s pulled behind the truck.

  1. Put brush out before the first day the trucks are scheduled to be in your Area.
  2. Place your brush where your garbage is collected – at the curb if your trash is collected there or in the alley if you have alley trash collection
  3. Leaves and grass clippings can be put out with your limbs and other brush in brown paper bags ONLY. Plastic bags will not be accepted.

MNPD Increasing Visibility

Police officers patrolling Nashville’s neighborhoods are about to become more visible.
Chief Steve Anderson today announced that new marked police cars are being equipped with light bars capable of displaying lower intensity non-flashing blue lights in a constant “on” position. These lights, which are most noticeable during the evening and nighttime hours, can be activated separately from full emergency flashing blue lights.
“The Neighborhood Patrol Lights are designed to help citizens be aware when officers are proactively patrolling neighborhoods as well as serve as a deterrent to crime by also letting would-be lawbreakers know that we are in the area,” Chief Anderson said.
Twenty new marked police cars assigned to the recently opened Midtown Hills Precinct are now equipped with Neighborhood Patrol Lights. Replacement police cars received by all precincts in the future will be equipped with the system.

Time Sensitive: Neighborhoods Resource Ctr Needs Our Support

Hello everyone,
I recently learned that the Neighborhoods Resource Center (NRC) is at risk of being dissolved as a result of lack of funding. This will impact this city including this neighborhood and the strength of neighborhoods throughout Nashville quite negatively.

Some of you know my history of building the 12South Neighborhood Association. When I moved to 12S NA prostitutes worked 12South and Sevier Park was not fit for children or animals because of discarded needles and used condoms. Now businesses and families are clamoring to stake a claim in 12South. None of that would have happened if not for the education, empowerment, support, guidance and networking I received through the Neighborhoods Resource Center.

The Neighborhoods Resource Center also facilitated the recent Nashville Codes drive along on Nolensville Pike with the Assistant Director of Codes, Bill Penn. The Neighborhoods Resource Center was instrumental in assisting neighborhood associations bordering Nolensville gathering for a town hall meeting at South Sector to discuss the revitalization of the Nolensville Corridor.

Every individual in Nashville has been impacted whether directly or indirectly as a result of the work Neighborhoods Resource Center does throughout Nashville.

I am writing you because NRC needs our support now. Councilman Davis is proposing funding for NRC and I am asking you to write the metro council to ask them to support Councilman Davis’s proposal. I am attaching a link that will take you to a page where you may send a single email that will go to every council person.

I urge you to support Neighborhoods Resource Center now because they have been supporting us for the last 18 years. Time is of the essence. Please email today.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
