Board Member Elections to be held on Tuesday October 13, 2015:
At the 12South Neighborhood Association community meeting on 14 April, members elected Daina Storey for the vacant board position. Her term will last until October 2016. Congratulations and welcome, Daina!
“I have been in 12th South almost 10 years ago due to the diversity, historical homes, walk ability & local businesses. I’m for growth that fits within the scale, character and prioritizes the safety of our neighborhood and where the local businesses and residents work as a team. Currently I work for a local Nashville Education Non-Profit, The PENCIL Foundation. I created the Fido Alert to report lost or found animals in our neighborhood. I would love to see 12th South be a community where everyone is heard & properly informed of what is going on, while preserving its unique character.”
“Drawn to the character and diversity of 12th South, Daina Storey moved to the neighborhood in 2006. Since then, she has seen a lot of growth and change. It’s because of these changes Daina has become active in the community to ensure the voices of her neighbors are heard. Daina knows change is inevitable, but believes there can be progress without losing the neighborhood’s unique character and history. As a proponent of responsible development and progress, she is proud to live here and would be proud to represent her neighbors as a member of the 12th South Neighborhood Association.”

Board of Directors membership is a significant responsibility, requiring a substantial time commitment and attendance at 12SouthNA board meetings monthly.
The 12South Neighborhood Association Board of Directors has constructed a survey to gather feedback from 12South residents about issues in the neighborhood. The link below will take you to the survey. It should only take a few moments and we would appreciate your participation.
The newest issue of the 12South NA newsletter should appear in the next week or so, and it will have a hard copy of the survey in it should anyone prefer to respond that way. You may complete the survey form and drop it off before February 28, 2015 at The Filling Station at 1118 Halcyon Avenue or you can call Paula Foster at 615-294-1319 to arrange for someone to pick up the survey directly from you.
