Annual Review and Planning, January 2018

The January 2018 meeting of the Edgehill Neighborhood Coalition was primarily devoted to reviewing our accomplishments in 2017 and planning for our work in the year ahead.

In a reflection and dialogue facilitated by Joyce Harris, a long term resident of Edgehill, each participant was asked to identify one achievement of the Coalition in 2017 that was most meaningful for them personally and to share their hopes for the Coalition and the Edgehill neighborhood. The discussion demonstrated a widely shared positive view of the Coalition’s work in 2017, including a number of remarkable advances for the neighborhood ( the passage of R6A to protect our walkability and the successful advocacy for limiting non-owner occupied short term rentals in residential neighborhoods).

Three  unmet goals will be carried over to 2018. These are listed below:

  1. To put a conservation overlay in place to protect the few remaining parts of historical Edgehill.
  2. To continue negoitations regarding Belmont University’s  building of a 20,000+ square foot baseball facility. See the post on this endeavor,  The second is the continued commitment to Envision Edgehill. See the post regarding this processs.
  3. To strenghening the coalition’s leadership succession strategies and improving its communication pathways. See the blog regaring this.
