Salemtown Neighbors is responsible for securing those signs after months of study, discussion, and deliberation.
07/13/2005 10:40 A.M. Update: Metro cancelled the planned installation of the signs this morning due to rain. They said that they needed to be able to spray paint on the spots where the signs would go up in order to check for gas or sewer lines beforehand. They said that they were also very busy. They told me they are planning for installation on Friday if the weather permits.
07/14/2005 3:00 P.M. Update: I just called Metro's Sign Dept. Manager, who apologized for not following up with me today about putting the signs up. He assured me that, unless it is raining, he will be here tomorrow morning at 10:00 to start installing the signs. In a related note: the day before yesterday, I emailed Tennessean reporter, Nancy Deville, who told me that she would do a profile on Salemtown Neighbors. I have yet to hear back from her. The installation of these signs would make a great lead-in to that profile, but once again there doesn't seem to be timely get-back with Ms. Deville.
