Jeff Syracuse Metro Council District 15
Donelson Neighborhood News - May 2017
As I’ve reported in previous newsletters, I’m very much aware that the Traffic Calming Program in Metro is greatly needed in many of our neighborhoods. It’s a slow process, primarily because it’s currently a contract position with Metro. However, I believe that with this upcoming budget, that will change and more resources will be devoted to it. I know questions wondering why such as speed bumps, speed humps and other techniques and elements that we see in other cities aren’t used here are on the minds of a lot of neighbors. I’m hopeful that as we improve the quality and availability of this program, we’ll see an increase in a variety of tools and techniques. The above website has a link for you to request traffic calming in your neighborhood.
Brush Pick-Up is coming soon, so get out there and clean up your yards and get the brush to the curb.
With the warm weather here, that means door-to-door sales folks will be walking the neighborhoods. Remember that Metro has a Do Not Knock List and you have to renew every year.
