Located at 1705 21st Avenue S. in Hillsboro Village, an employee at Provence confirmed to Eater Nashville over the phone that today is indeed its last day, with the business closing at 7 p.m. A reason for the shutter is not currently known, but the employee says that it came as a shock to everyone.
Mayor Megan Barry will participate in a public signing event for Executive Order No. 40 on Urban Forestry Tuesday, February 13 at 1 PM at The Belmont University BookStore located at 1700 Portland Ave. This executive action recognizes trees as a public utility, establishes new guidelines to govern Metro’s planting and maintenance of trees, and appoints a new Urban Forestry Program Manager to lead and coordinate all Metro tree-related activities. Mayor Barry will be joined by District 18 Councilmember Burkley Allen; Belmont University President Bob Fisher; Metro’s new Urban Forestry Program Manager Naomi Rotramel; and appointed members of both Mayor Barry’s Livable Nashville Committee and the Metro Tree Advisory Committee. During recent heavy renovations, The Belmont Store went to great lengths to both protect and enhance the survival of a 60-70’ historic elm (ulmus Americana) tree on its property. It is Belmont University’s policy to try to preserve existing trees during any construction-related activities on its campus. Nashville’s recent development boom has placed significant pressure on the urban tree canopy, so Mayor Barry’s Livable Nashville sustainability plan has set an umbrella goal of 50 percent countywide tree-canopy coverage by the year 2050—an approximate addition of 300,000 net new trees planted by 2030, or 500,000 net new trees by 2050. Executive Order No. 40 seeks to help Nashville achieve its long-term sustainability goals: protecting air and water quality, improving public health, and saving public dollars on heavy infrastructure to mitigate stormwater impacts.
Great to hear from CM Allen and share updates on legislation and I-440 with HWEN this evening.
