I've learned quickly that sleep is overrated and nice clothes cannot be warn. Baby Taylor has made sure of that!
Alright! I am still home with mom and baby as we enter the last July meeting of the term. We'll be back in mid-season form in no-time! I'll just have a little assistant to help sign you all in at meetings now!
With only 3 meetings (counting tonight) to go, we are on are way to completing a historic Metro Council Term. We have seen so much this term and we made it through with your support. I'm excited to be heading into a new term (with your support at the polls). There's so much more work to do, and we can accomplish many of our goals together.
This is Important for District 21 - Clarksville Hwy is getting Paved! (DO NOT SKIP OVER)
In my haste last meeting, I failed to mention one extremely important item on the agenda. RS2023-2301 is a resolution that approves an intergovernmental agreement between the Tennessee Department of Transportation (“TDOT”) and the Nashville Department of Transportation and Multimodal Infrastructure (“NDOT”) for the repair of existing pavement failures and resurfacing of 0.83 miles of Clarksville Pike/Dr. D.B. Todd Jr. Boulevard from Buchanan Street to Ed Temple Boulevard/Rosa L. Parks Boulevard.
Like many of you, I am tired of driving down Clarksville Hwy and needing an alignment once I turn off of that street. I've mentioned this to several of you, that we are working hard to get Clarksville Hwy paved. This has been on of the top priorities for me. We are now one step closer to having this become a reality. We now have a signed agreement from both parties (TDOT and NDOT) and we have a contractual cost for each party. The plan is to have this completed by the end of the fall. If this changes, I will let you know.
31st Ave N between Park Plaza and West End Updates
Another item that I've worked on this entire term is updates along 31st Ave N in the Centennial Park Area. I am happy to report, that this will also be coming to fruition. I am working with NDOT to schedule a meeting with neighbors for their input on the upgrades. Specifically safety measures for walkability and pedestrian crossings. We will also complete sidewalks on both the East and West sides of 31st Ave N from Park Plaza to West End. This is more exciting news. Please be on the lookout for meeting dates in the coming weeks.
What's Happening tonight:
RS2023-2321 - A resolution accepting an in-kind grant from Vanderbilt University to the Metropolitan Government, acting by and through the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation, to replace the current video board at the Centennial Sportsplex.
RS2023-2319 - A resolution accepting an in-kind grant from Creative Parks Nashville to the Metropolitan Government, acting by and through the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation, to provide equipment for the support and expansion of the Music and Visual Arts programs at the Centennial Performing Arts Center and Metro Parks Community Centers.
BL2023-2005 - An ordinance to amend Chapter 3.52 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws to require that employees of the Metropolitan Government receive annual salary increases that reflect a cost-of-living adjustment consistent with the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers.
