RCWA meeting re: storm buffer for new MNPD precinct Monday (March 1)

Please see below from the Richland Creek Watershed Alliance regarding an important meeting on Monday, March 1, at 5:30 p.m.
Last week Metro posted a stream buffer variance request notice on the property that Metro recently purchased for the upcoming West Nashville Police precinct and crime lab.

The property is located at 5500 Charlotte Avenue (Old Champion Ford, Frensley), and it's eastern border is Richland Creek. You may also remember this property was included into the proposed bird watching and commemorative James Park, during the West Nashville public visioning and planning process.  James Park did not make it through the planning process but RCWA was assured the stream buffer would be fully restored. 

RCWA received numerous emails objecting to the variance request last week.

Our councilman, Jason Holleman, has contacted RCWA this week to host a meeting to discuss this variance request with RCWA supporters, in which the engineer hired for the Metro redevelopment project also will be present.

This meeting for the stream buffer variance request will be held Monday, 5:30 p.m. at the library room of the Cohn school- 4805 Park Avenue. Metro city ordinance calls for properties, who are grandfathered-in with no stream buffers, be fully restored when they are significantly redeveloped.  At this location a 75 foot stream buffer is required.

Please come to the meeting with your questions about this variance request to not fully restore the stream buffer.
