What to expect tonight:
There are several zoning items on Public Hearing tonight. District 21 does not have any items on Public Hearing.
RS2020-611 - This is a resolution to direct $24M from the CARES Act Fund to MNPS for technological supplies and computers for teachers and students.
BL2020-505 - On first reading, CM Hall is asking for the Council Body to amend appropriations in the fiscal year budget for the Long Term Care Facility at Bordeaux (Bordeaux Hospital). The facility is scheduled to close on January 1, 2021. This is asking for monies to be used to keep Bordeaux Hospital open for the remainder of 2021 and not close at the end of January.
BL2020-300 - This is an ordinance that would restrict construction in residential areas between 7:00 am - 7:00 pm. There is a substitute for this bill. You can find the substitute in the Proposed Amendments Packet.
BL2020-456 - This bill was born out of BL2020-224, a bill sponsored by me. It answers many questions regarding early evictions and non-renewals of rental agreements and leases.
BL2020-450 - This ordinance will change the name of Nashville's 5th Ave to John Lewis Way. U.S. Congressman John Lewis spent several years in Nashville during the Civil Rights Movement. WPLN has a great article regarding the street renaming.
BL2019-79 - A STRP ordinance that would require STRP owners with a permit to live in the home and not leave the home for over 15 hours consecutively. There is a substitute for this bill and it can be found in the Proposed Amendments Packet.
Dates to remember:
- All in-person meetings (large/small groups or one-on-one) that I have scheduled are postponed in light of the increasing COVID-19 concerns and will not be rescheduled until further notice.
I invite all District 21 residents to reach out to me directly with any information or concerns in our community. Email is the best form of communication, but invite you to call me as well. My contact information is below.
