Pictures, cars, elections, and development: Updates from Aug 10, 2015 Eastwood Neighbors business meeting

Here are a few quick updates from our August 10 business meeting.  Hope to see you at our next Odd Month happy hour at Eastland Cafe, 5:30, Tuesday, September 8.
Eastwood Neighbors wants your pictures! We are putting together a slide show for our booth at the Neighborhood Resource Center's Neighborhood Day celebration on September 26 in Cleveland Park and we want your photos. Your house. Your garden. Your dog. Your favorite Eastwood landmark...whatever. We do ask, for security and privacy, that you not submit a photo of anyone else's house without their permission. You can email them to President Cliff at
A reminder from MNPD Commander Imhof to roll up you car windows and lock the doors. Most thieves won't break a car window unless there is something valuable visible in the car. EN has had a few cars stolen that people have left running while going into a shop.
The Davidson County Election Commission is currently hiring Poll Officials for the 2016 elections. Officials earn $30 per training class attended and $150 per Election Day worked. To serve as a Poll Official, you must be a Davidson County registered voter and at least 17 years old. Students, this is a great opportunity to get an inside look at how elections are run in Tennessee and earn some extra cash!  Apply now to serve in 2016 at Call the Election Staffing and Training Hotline at 615.862.4372.
Speaking of elections, we are looking for folks interested in serving on the Eastwood board or running for one of the officer positions. The VP position will be open, and possibly the President position. Candidates will have an opportunity to introduce themselves to the group at our October meeting; elections at the December meeting. If you or someone you know is interested, please email Cliff.
And Clay Haynes gave an update on the Greenwood Village project at Hobson. They are in design phase now. As soon as final designs are done, they will go back to Metro Historic and then back to Metro Council for design approval. Hope to break ground spring or early summer 2016. Will do some stabilization work in the meantime.
