Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and predicted that there would be an early Spring!

Transit Referendum

Earlier this month, the mayor of Nashville announced plans to initiate a referendum aimed at determining a funding source for his proposed transit plan. The mayor's vision centers on enhancing various aspects of transportation infrastructure, including sidewalks, buses, traffic signalization, and pedestrian safety. During his press conference, he emphasized that the focus of the plan is not on implementing grand-scale transit projects like electronic light rail systems, but rather on addressing fundamental elements of multi-modal transportation.

It's essential to recognize that this plan may catalyze discussions regarding our annual budget. While initiatives like improving sidewalks and bolstering pedestrian safety are crucial and should already be prioritized, questions linger regarding how this plan will tackle broader-scale challenges related to traffic management within the city.

With a 15-minute meeting scheduled with the mayor and his team next week, I anticipate gaining more insights into the specifics of the proposal. I aim to delve deeper into how this plan aligns with our city's long-term transportation goals and addresses the pressing needs of our growing urban landscape. I look forward to sharing more detailed information following the meeting.

What I've Been Up To:

  • We have had some sort of sickness in our home since Baby P started daycare! We're much better, but far from all of us being 100%! This was not in the warranty book the hospital gave us when we left with our new baby.
  • Working with MDHA to assist Parthenon Towers with several complaints. We are planning a meeting with the residents and MDHA leadership in the coming weeks.
  • City-Wide zoning legislation - I have had a few conversations with community groups regarding the city-wide zoning legislation that has been filed. I will be hosting a Town Hall in March to discuss with the entire district further.
  • Traffic Calming meeting with NDOT to be held next week. I'm meeting with NDOT to discuss traffic calming and speeding in the District.
  • Buchanan and DB Todd corner activity - I am meeting with the DA's office and the Chief of Police to discuss this matter further in the coming weeks.
