Preparation for the Public Meeting about Bowling Av's sidewalks being held April 23rd, 630p, at West End Middle School are underway. The postcard invites are going out. We have almost put 500 postcards into mailboxes around Bowling Av and have another 500 coming on Monday.
Email invitations to Council Members, the Mayor, representatives of interested non-profits and government organizations, schools, churches and synagogues have gone out. We have 2 councilmen planning on coming. Waiting to hear from many more. We have 3 guest speakers lined up and are waiting to hear from a few more.
The program is going to last about 1 hour with time for questions/discussion at the end.
My 14 year old and some of her friends will provide informal baby sitting if you would like to bring your younger children but are afraid you may not be able to concentrate.
We will also be providing light refreshments.
If you have interest in helping, speaking or participating - please contact me through facebook or this blog. Thank you to Carey, Debbi and Cathy for their help in handing out postcard invites! Thank you, too, to the many who have provided such valuable advice.
Most importantly --- Please plan to attend! We want to hear from you. It is going to be critical to impress upon our elected officials, Public Works, and others that we are a city that wants sidewalks, will use sidewalks, and are willing to work collaboratively to create well designed infrastructure so that Nashvillians can get out and WALK!
