Hello Friends of Belmont Boulevard, Thank you for making our first Belmont Boulevard Community Meeting a huge success! We appreciate your comments, ideas and concerns. Let’s keep the conversation going! Belmont-Hillsboro Neighbors, Inc. will host the 2nd Belmont Boulevard Traffic and Safety Community Meeting Monday, June 25 5:30-7:30 PM Christ the King School - Parish Hall 3105 Belmont Boulevard Please park in the back parking lot. Enter through the West Wing’s rear entrance of the school These are “drop-in” meetings, so stop in anytime between 5:30-7:30 PM to chat with members of Metro Planning and Public Works, BHN Steering Committee, your State and Metro representatives, and fellow neighbors. The purpose of these meetings is to work on a redesign of Belmont Boulevard that addresses serious traffic concerns such as speeding, passing in bike lanes, and driving through pedestrian crosswalks. The design team from Metro Planning and Public Works are assessing the information shared by neighbors at the first meeting and will provide more examples of proven traffic calming and usability methods that will create a safer and more complete Belmont Boulevard. The 3rd Community Meeting will be in about 3-4 weeks. All of the information collected from the first 2 Community Meetings will be compiled to create a comprehensive design that will make Belmont Boulevard safer and a more effective complete street for our neighborhood. This design will be presented at the 3rd Community Meeting (date tbd). Implementation of this design could happen as early as this fall. Please share this information with your neighbors and on social media. We have a great opportunity to create a Belmont Boulevard that will serve everyone safely and beautifully. We need everyone’s help in bringing all of these great ideas to the table and to learn about proven design options that address our collective concerns. Let’s work together to make Belmont Boulevard the Best Street in Nashville! Cynthia J. Hicks, President Belmont-Hillsboro Neighbors, Inc
Happy to see so many Belmont-Hillsboro Neighbors who care about making Belmont Blvd more neighborhood friendly.
