Donelson Business News – June 2016
I had a great meeting with a few Google Fiber execs to learn more about the status of the installation and much anticipated roll out of their service. They’ve completed the design of the network and as we’ve seen, have been busy building it. This is a big undertaking! Once complete, the network will include more than 3,200 miles of fiber, enough to stretch from here to Canada and back. They are working hard to make disruption in the neighborhoods to a minimum. They have a 24-7 Construction Inquiry Line at 877-454-6959 if you have any issues. With the underground infrastructure going well, there are a few logistical issues to work through as far as the above ground wiring, but they are making good progress. Sign up here to keep up to date with their progress and as soon as service is available, that’s how to get notified.

Welcome to TCT Network’s newest office in Nashville. WJFB-TV Channel 44 began operations in August 2015 and they now have production facilities in Music Valley for their inspirational television programming. They can also be found on Comcast Channel 22 and AT&T on Channel 66. I enjoyed attending the ribbon cutting ceremony with State Senator Steve Dickerson and State Representative Bill Beck. To my left in the picture below is Johnny Cash’s sister, Joanne.

Blues Vintage Guitars has a new home in the heart of Donelson at 212-A McGavock Pike. Thanks to Donelson neighbor and owner Gabe Hernandez for bringing this great guitar shop closer into the neighborhoods. This was my first rezoning project to help make this happen and I’m very happy to see how great the store looks. Check out the website for pictures or better yet stop by and welcome Gabe on his new location.
