    Another eventful and historic week in Nashville is behind us. As you well know, the transit referendum failed to pass, and by a wide margin. This is particularly disappointing to District 17, which voted to support the transit plan. But we will go back to work and continue to seek solutions to a transportation problem that is not going away.

District 17 is about to have a lot of cases coming up in front of the Board of Zoning Appeals, which meets Thursday at 1 p.m. at Howard Office Building (700 2nd Ave S.). You can see the agenda here. The three D17 items on April 5 are as follows:

An appeal for a short-term rental permit at 836 Glen Ave. I've received probably a dozen emails against this permit, and a couple in favor. At this point, I don't like the direction this is headed. I'd say if you feel strongly on this one, try to make the meeting.

An appeal to not re-do the sidewalk at 1009 Caldwell Ave. If the applicant pays into the in-lieu-of fund, I'm OK with it.
