  • Continued my strong commitment and service to Donelson’s neighborhoods:

    • Led Donelson Neighborhood leader gatherings to report on district work and listen to neighborhood leaders.
    • Worked closely with 20+ neighborhoods and engage directly with their social media pages.
    • Actively engaged with our 15th District Beautification Commissioner Michele Mazzu in leading beautification efforts with The Donelson Gateway Project, Day of Trewth and multiple other initiatives.
    • Acted on a policy of always having neighborhood meetings before any zoning legislation is filed that would impact them.
    • Continued engagement with Hip Donelson and the Hip Donelson Community Farmer’s Market as volunteer.
    • Led the community in updating the Community Plan along Lebanon Pike from Spence Lane to Briley Parkway to prepare for growth and development.
    • Led the Pennington Bend neighbors and Opry / Music Valley area businesses in improving Holiday traffic both short term and with long term infrastructure needs.
    • Engaged Metro Parks & Recreation to submit a Capital Improvement Budget request to fund a Master Plan for the historic preservation and future development of Lock Two Park.
