Cavalia Equestrian Theatrical Show

Cavalia comes to Pennington Bend, Historic Overlay and Community Meeting for Belair Mansion and More Development Updates

Dear Friends –

Thanks to those who live in and around Pennington Bend who came to the community meeting about Cavalia, the equestrian theatrical show coming to Ryman Hospitality’s land just east of Briley Parkway.  Please visit the website at the link above for more information.  Below are some of the slides that were presented at the meeting.  Also of note is that as a token of good will, the management team of Cavalia is offering an opportunity for directly adjacent neighbors to see the show for free since they are the most impacted by this show.  If you attended the meeting and signed the Sign In Sheet, you should be contacted.  If you weren’t able to attend the meeting, please email info@cavalia.net and provide them your address to verify your residence.  Please do not abuse this kind gesture.

It’s a pleasure to introduce to you a very bright young man, Aidan Rowan, who has been shadowing me this summer learning about the job of a Council Member and assisting with a couple projects.  Aidan is a Nashville native whose parents grew up in Donelson and Aidan lived here his first nine years.  He was a part of the 2016 graduating class of University School of Nashville.  Currently he is a part of the Tufts University class of 2020, where he is majoring in Political Science and Philosophy.  He’s passionate about the community.  In his spare time, Aidan likes to watch the Titans, Predators and Reds, as well as helping out with his school’s Model United Nations organization.

I’m very proud that the Historic Overlay passed on third reading at the July 18 Council Meeting.  The next step is to review a site plan and hold a community meeting.  The site plan will have to go through the same Planning Commission and Council process that the Overlay went through.  We will have a Community Meeting on Tuesday, August 29th at 7pm at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church.  Thanks to Russell Hobbs, Maplecrest Neighborhood Association, for helping set up this meeting.  I look forward to seeing you there and providing input on this proposed site plan.

I learned recently from State Representative Bill Beck and Darren Jernigan that Briley Parkway will be paved from where TDOT stopped last year at the McGavock Pike interchange down to Two Rivers Parkway.  They should be starting soon and done by around October.

The boat ramp at the end of McGavock Pike in the Opry / Music Valley area has officially been transferred to Metro.  Metro Parks is actively working on the site and creating signage.  When it’s ready in the next several weeks, we will have a ribbon cutting and officially open it up to the public.  Stay tuned for an announcement on that.

For those about to enjoy the Solar Eclipse, here is some information from Metro Parks.  Be sure to protect your eyes with the proper eye glasses!
