07/03/13 -McEwen and Wilson Pike Intersection
The Board reached out to the City of Franklin to inquire about the road work and new intersection that is to be built at the corner of McEwen and Wilson Pike. We wanted to learn more about the impact it may have to the front of our neighborhood, and wanted our desire for a sidewalk or even shoulder to be included to increase safety of our residents that are runners and cyclists. The City's response and the proposed diagrams are now hosted on the News page of the Meade of Avalon website. Take a look, the news is good! The coolest piece is the aerial illustration of what the intersection is proposed to look like. See attached!

07/03/13 - Fourth of July Reminder!
Please be reminded that fireworks are not allowed to be discharged within the community.

07/02/13 - Survey Update: Community Gate
As part of the follow-up to the recent Home Owners Property Survey, the board promised to provide you with answers to your questions and to keep you up to speed on the action items the board is working on. Today’s topic focuses on the gate. This is a topic we received a lot of questions/comments on. We have updated the FAQ page meadofavalon.com website to include the answers to your gate questions like: Can I get another remote or r can I get it connected to my car remote? Check the FAQ page for all the answers.

Action Item outcome:
You will be seeing one change in the coming weeks. The instructions on the front of the gate communications system have partially worn off. Unfortunately we cannot simply replace the face panel as it is not an option. Based on the construction of the unit, the entire box would need to be replaced which would be far too expensive for what is broken. So instead a durable label is being created and will be applied to the unit. A much more economical fix! And yes, it will be waterproof and fade resistant.

07/01/13 - Survey Results
Thank you to all the 140 residents who took the time to complete the Meade of Avalon Home Owners Property survey. The board got some great feedback and a lot of questions. As a result, we are in the process of updating our FAQ page on the website to include answers to questions we heard most. Want to know what was results? Click here to view the complete survey results. Be sure to check out the last 2 pages of the PDF to see the list of action items that the board will be addressing as a result. Thanks again for all your input. And if you have additional comments, please use the contact us form on the Meade of Avalon website.

04/17/13- Clarification Update - Pool Gates
Please be updated with clarification on the pool gate information previously emailed today as follows: We would like to be sure all are clear about the new pool gate. It is a brand new gate and the old brass keys that residents currently have will no longer work. However, the gate remotes that you currently have for the main entrance gate will now open the pool gate as well, when within range. If residents would like to have an individual access key fob specifically for the pool gate, they may be purchased for $25 each from the homeowners association. You may submit your request for the key fob for the pool gate online at www.ghertner.com, then select pool key request. The Board was hopeful that residents would enjoy the elimination of a key and the ability to utilize the gate remote they have for the pool as well. Please be reminded that as it was an issue last year at the pool, there is NO alcohol allowed at the pool facilities.

04/16/13- New Pool Gate
The Meade of Avalon is having a new pool gate installed with secure access. The plan is for the gate openings to also work in the pool gate when they are within a few feet of the gate. If you would like to purchase electronic key fobs for the new pool gate, they will be available for $25 each through the Meade of Avalon Homeowners Association. Please contact the association's Homeowner Service Center to request your key fob at 615-277-0358 or hsr@ghertner.com. You may also go to www.ghertner.com and select pool key request to complete your request online. Attached are the pool rules for reference. The pool will open May 1st.

The 2012 Avalon Community Service Project was a huge success! As a community we collected over 115 gifts for the patients at our local nursing home. You all were extremely creative and generous this year. This year's delivery included; sweaters, blankets, puzzles, shirts, robes, outfits, C.D.'s and many other great ideas. The sweet folks at the home were so appreciative and excited to see the mounds of gifts surrounding their Christmas tree. The staff was so appreciative and we requested that the staff sort and deliver the gifts to each room on Christmas Eve. Please know that your generosity helped to make their holidays and coming days a bit brighter! On behalf of the Avalon Social Committee, I thank each of you.

8/23/12-McEwen Drive and Intersection Update
THANKS for your patience! I had a lot of info to put together for multiple people, plus I had to meet with City Staff and Administration numerous times regarding the new traffic pattern at the McEwen / Oxford Glen / Cool Springs intersection and I only wanted to do this once and get as much info in the hands of the people as possible so thus the delay. It also took me longer to get all this accomplished as I have had numerous personal issues that required my time. Thanks for being patient. I know the traffic-tie-up on the weekday   mornings has been a big issue on McEwen and we are trying everyday to alleviate it as best we can and seriously address safety issues as well.   See the attachments for more info.

Hope this information helps. We will be having a special BOMA meeting this fall to prioritize our funding for 2013 and I will be pushing McEwen Phase IV design between the newly to be constructed intersections (of Wilson / McEwen and McEwen/Oxford Glen/Cool Springs) full speed ahead. I am thrilled that we will get started very soon on putting the roundabout through and on the McEwen / Wilson Pike intersection (as soon as we can work the issue out with the foreclosed property).  
Always something isn't it? But... we forge ahead. 
In the attachment  "CIP Priority Ranking" - scroll down and see McEwen Phase IV listed as *3 

By the way, after you have read the attachments- let me know if you would rather the city spend the $75,000+ to put in a traffic light at the  McEwen/Oxford Glen/Cool Springs intersection for the next  9 to 10 months vs paying a police officer to address safety issues and move traffic for the next 12 month for the morning commute times (7 AM- 8:45 AM) at around $10,000.  
Send me an email and please put in the SUBJECT line either: 
Go with the Officer or Spend the money for the traffic light. 
It is also helpful to me if you include your Name and email address in the body of the email. 

Hope you all are doing well.
