Being Good Neighbors week 5: Report Everything

Hopefully you know by now that we have are running a 12 weeks series on improving the roads in East Nashville.  Specifically we are trying to improve pedestrian safety through education.  As we all learn, we become smarter pedestrians, better drivers, and just a much better running group. So I hope that you continue spending the time that it takes to read these posts, and pass them along as you see fit.

Just to underline the resources that exist for helping to improve our streets, please see a comprehensive list that responds to different types of issues. East Nasty is happy to help in tandem with these improvements; but please don't hesitate to indepently be in contact with the city resources. Share any feedback with us. A problem unreported doesn't exist.

We've been bad about asking for volunteers to wash the cups, so we have a pretty blank calendar!   Please consider volunteering.   If all of us volunteered for one week, we could easily fill up a year!    Take the cups home, wash them, bring them back.  Easy stuff.   Sign up for a week here.  Thanks!
(We are also going to need some volunteers to man our East Nasty booth at the Tomato Fest.  More on that next week...)
