Residential permit parking is coming to the 800 and 900 blocks of Russell. Please read the following blog for more information:
How do you get a Parking Permit?
Residents who completed the Residential Permit Parking Petition prior to April 8 will be mailed a Parking Permit application form. Those who did not complete the petition by that date can find the application form on the Public Works webpage:
https://www.nashville.gov/Portals/0/SiteContent/pw/docs/permits/Residential%20Parking%20Permit%20Application.pdf or at the Public Works Office. Submit the application for processing to Diane Marshall. Her contact Information: phone (615-880-2455), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (615-880-2012). You have the option of obtaining your permit from her office at Public Works, 570 S. 5th Street.
When does it go into effect?
Public Works will install the Residential Permit Parking signs for the 800 and 900 blocks around April 25th. Enforcement will not begin immediately.
What are the conditions of our Residential Permit Parking?
Residential Permit Parking was proposed because the residents on the 800 and 900 blocks of Russell Street were experiencing a scarcity of on-street parking and because off-street parking is not available for many.
The proposal was approved by the Traffic and Parking Commission on April 8, 2019.
Hello, Neighbors! We have some exciting news to share: Mayor Briley will be joining us for our January 29 neighborhood meeting for a discussion on our Edgefield neighborhood and community. All neighbors are invited to attend.

East Precinct Report:
Community Affairs Sargent Mike Fisher gave an update on the police activity in our neighborhood. We had 104 incidents since the last meeting, with 59 being vehicle related. This isn’t unique to HEN; it’s happening across Middle Tennessee. He recommended Ring (or a similar system) as a way to help deter theft. There have been approximately 75 firearms stolen out of vehicles in East Precinct this year. We have also had some residential burglaries and armed robberies in/around the neighborhood.
Also, be aware of your surroundings when walking, sitting in cars, etc. Mainly, put your phones down and be alert to what’s happening around you; please keep your doors locked when driving and sitting in your car waiting. And watch for packages being left on porches, especially during the holiday season.
