The 12 South Neighborhood Association invites you to attend our 2016 Holiday Potluck & monthly meeting on Monday, December 5th from 6 to 8pm at the Sevier Park Community Center.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend! Please bring a side to share with your neighbors. We will provide the main dish, plates, cups, napkins, & utensils.

Last year’s event was a great time! And the food was amazing! Pictures here:

We had a great November meeting. Thanks to everyone who came – we look forward to seeing you in December!

Update: We will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Waverly Belmont Backpack program. Please bring what you can to the potluck! More info here:

The Trees are Planted!

This weekend’s tree planting initiative was a success! We planted 17 trees across the morning and afternoon. These are our little babies that we’ve happily given to you to nurture and grow over the years.  They already look so fantastic in all of your yards…just think what they will look like 15 years from now!  🙂  We appreciate our neighbors wanting to help contribute to replacing the tree canopy that our neighborhood has seen reduced over the years.

Huge thanks to some very special neighbors, who joined us in grinding out 17 tree plantings in some very dry, rocky and tree-rooty earth yesterday.  If you see Karen Vickers, Jarrad Vickers, Liane Moneta-Koehler, Donald Thompson,  Chris Koch or David Hooper in the neighborhood, give them some love for the tremendous effort needed to get so many trees planted in one day.

Thanks again to our Gold Sponsor of this event, Sport Ortho Urgent Care. Without their  support, this wouldn’t have been possible!

Back to School Bike Ride!

Join Edgehill & 12 South in the Back to School Bike Ride on Saturday, August 6th at 10am! We’ll start at Operation Stand Down on 12th Ave. South and ride as a protected group to Sevier Park for water and snacks. Stay & play or ride back with the group at noon. Bring your bikes and helmets.

This is a family event, so bring everyone out to support healthy kids and a positive community.

Let’s get the kids of Edgehill & 12 South together riding bikes!

Information on Waverly Belmont NCZO from the Metro Historic Commission


The 12 South Neighborhood Association wanted to pass along this information about the new Waverly-Belmont Conservation Zoning Overlay from Robin Zeigler at the Metro Historic Zoning Commission. If you have any questions about the overlay, we encourage you to get in touch with Robin.


Dear Waverly-Belmont Neighborhood:

Congratulations on your Neighborhood Conservation Zoning Overlay! We encourage you to provide the following resources to your neighbors via your newsletter, listserv and/or website.

Anyone can subscribe to receive monthly notice of when the MHZC agenda is posted online by visiting…/TNNASH/subscriber/new. Typically signs are only posted if the property is being rezoned so the best way for you to know what is going on in their neighborhood is to sign up for the agenda notification.

Preservation Permit applications can be found at…/Servic…/Preservation-Permits.aspx and the design guidelines are now at…/Districts-and-Design-Guidelines.…. We highly recommend that you contact the historic zoning staff early in the planning stages of your project. We can provide feedback and recommendations for gaining approval before you spend money only finalizing your design.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are unsure about work happening in your neighborhood. We only have one inspector so to some extent we rely on the neighborhoods to keep us informed.

I hope you will visit us at the Old House Fair, the first Saturday of every March at the Sevier Park Community Center. It’s a terrific resource for people who are looking to maintain, revamp or restore their old home. Visit for more information about the event and our exhibitors.

Looking forward to working with you all.
