  1. I drive a full size truck (not that big though lol). I have three children that would not fit very well into a smaller truck and these kids will only get bigger. I live in the urban core and have for over 15 years. I did not depart to the suburbs because I had kids. I am also renovating an older home and needed a truck for that purpose. Speaking of stereotypes, not everyone is in thier late 20's/early 30's with only a fur baby to take care of and drives a Honda Element . The awful person part is debatable, might want to ask my wife
  2. So is there anywhere to see how each state representative voted? I am particular interested in how the representatives that represent the areas that would have been affected (metro Nashville, Knoxville, Memphis, Chattanooga) and the outer laying counties after these locales where taken out of the "mix". I was all for owner occupied. Non owner occupied is an abomination to already established residential neighborhoods. It is troubling that Air BnB and their 7 lobbyist still pushed this just on Nashville when it when it was clear other areas/cities were not going to be affected. To me, the worse thing about non owner occupied houses is not the possibility of large parties or loud people. It is having empty houses sitting around when no one is there. No one starting families, no neighbors, no kids using the local schools. This is not a residential neighborhood, this is a commercial district. I am trying to raise kids in an urban neighborhood, I want them to have friends and I want to have friends and good neighbors. Unfortunately, the fox has been let into the hen house. Money has been smelled. My opinion, this will absolutely wreck neighborhoods like Lockeland Springs, Edgefield, Germantown. The ones closest to downtown. EDIT: At best, another reason for people to move to the suburbs. At worst - They will become fake neighborhoods.
  3. Apologies if this is being discussed on another thread. Looks like the esteemed state senators from Air BnB hotbeds of Huntingdon and Crossville are now just targeting the inner neighborhoods with their overreaching "legislation". East Nashville is already beginning to be eat up with out of state non owner occupied AirBnB's. Lovely it's ok these people can run full businesses next to our houses but not in any of the Republican strongholds. This could be the death knell of any real neighborhood building. It's becoming Disney Land for drunken tourists who want to experience a "an urban" neighborhood. Total BS - http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2017/05/04/state-intervention-short-term-rentals-now-proposed-just-4-big-cities/101284412/
  4. Permit pulled to demo the Sub Shop today.
  5. Can we ban front loading garages entirely? http://www.wsmv.com/story/27873917/clarksville-police-seek-help-to-end-string-of-burglaries
  6. Regarding the possible Ready Mix relocation - , that little area is sort of a secret connection between East Nashville and Bordeaux, You go west and take Douglas to Dickerson, then go north for half a block, then back on Douglas (in true Nashville fashion) and bam you just avoided Trinity Lane. There seems to be a lot of industrial companies in the area. Sort of pegged that area for a possible hot spot for development because of location. Went through there last night and there was a extremely strong odor from one of the industrial sites. There are some high end homes on a hill that can be seen on the interstate.
  7. Wasn't sure where to put this. I went to a great little fund raiser in McMinnville a few weeks ago called Sip & Saveur and was taken by the quaintness and beauty of the old town area. I snapped a few pics with my crappy camera phone. There were some new businesses popping up and some revitalization happening. They still have their old theater, Park Theatre, and according to my sis-in-law, they are in midst of fundraising and renovation. Sort of reminds me of a little section of Asheville NC. There is even a very large hill that might pass for a mountain behind the city street/water tower (although it did not come through in my pics) http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3427-img-20140927-183744/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3430-img-20140927-183756/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3428-img-20140927-183539/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3433-img-20140927-193035/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3434-img-20140927-192247/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3435-img-20140927-192255/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3436-img-20140927-193310/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3438-img-20140927-193424/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3439-img-20140927-193435/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3440-img-20140927-193440/ http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g55193-d3614213-Reviews-Collins_River_BBQ_Cafe-McMinnville_Tennessee.html http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3431-img-20140927-185219/ http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3442-img-20140927-201029/ https://www.facebook.com/ParkTheatreMcMinnvilleTN http://www.urbanplanet.org/forums/gallery/image/3441-img-20140927-194136/
  8. Not suprising. The place is set-up like a casino, encouraging all attendee's/guests to not leave so they will spend all thier cash within the confines.
  9. Just noticed the other day that the former "Feed The Children" warehouse on the East Bank near Davidson Street is now a Beaman Automotive Parts Distributive Center. Not sure if it is replacing the one by his back office and sales lots on West End or just another addition.
  10. Amp route gets test drive http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/local/2014/06/24/amp-route-gets-test-drive/11322867/ Of interest - "...Others asked why Woodland Street would connect East Nashville with downtown when James Robertson Parkway would be easier for buses to navigate. The current proposal calls for wider roads at Woodland Street and Fifth Street to accommodate buses’ wider turning radiuses."
  11. WATCH FOX 17 THIS MORNING! TUNE IN or STREAM NOW! 05/13/14 05:06:49 AM The next generation of traffic has arrived in Nashville! Not only are we giving you a chance to win a NEW Beaman Toyota Camry, our new 3D traffic monitoring system, helping you arrive on time. We're also tracking the potential for some showers today and severe storms tomorrow. click here for more On the Fox 17 News site this morning. It took me a minute to realize they were talking about the 3D traffic monitoring system.
  12. Yeah, I scoped the bike/walking situation to the new Sounds stadium from East Nashville. Doesn't look very safe. As a "casual urban biker" it does not inspire confidence. The ride to Greer (from East Nashville), while longer and with more hills, looks a lot safer than this bike ride. Oh and they really need to widen the sidewalks on the Jefferson Street Bridge.
  13. It's funny. I'm in one of the areas that Google fiber would probably be installed. And literally, my internet speed has pretty much doubled tonight. I have never seen it so fast (I have AT&T basic service) and have had this service for years. Hmmm wonder if that has anything to do with it?
  14. Probably not following up on the last post about City Winery but here are some renderings on the Eater - Nashville site. http://nashville.eater.com/archives/2014/02/20/city-winery-nashville-now-has-renderings.php
