The next meeting of the Salemtown CAC concerning potential projects for the federal block grant is Tuesday, November 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Randee Rogers Training Center on 8th Ave., North.
The guest presenter will be Gary Gaston of the Nashville Civic Design Center (NCDC). Mr. Gaston will present on the 2002 study of Salemtown, which was part of "Findings and Recommendations" that the NCDC had for several North End neighborhoods. Gaston is not listed in the study among the original NCDC staff who met with North End residents, business owners, and property owners.
Enclave has the 2002 NCDC study linked in the right-hand column "Other People's Plans For Our Neighborhoods" box. It is worth a read and it has some interesting proposals for each of the neighborhoods. Also, take a look at the aerial map of the North End on page 3 of the study and notice that the 2002 border between Salemtown and Germantown is farther south at Van Buren, rather than at Hume.
The CAC meeting will also include small group discussions of potential projects for S-town. Looks like we're getting serious this time around.
