Neighborhood leaders dedicate themselves to greater community organizing in advance of 2011 elections

A bit of news that I failed to relay over the summer because it occurred while I was on vacation was a June meeting of neighborhood leaders designed to help plan in advance of next year's Metro Council elections. Besides looking to promote more "neighborhood-friendly" candidates to run, the group also intends to support one another on planning issues. Here is one description of that intention from the Nashville Neighborhoods e-list:
The consensus of neighborhood advocates was that they needed to band together on principle to help protect each other’s adopted community plans. This because they said city officials with regularity try to sneak through SP (special project) plans that favored certain property owners at the expense of the greater community.
