Greetings! I hope everyone is enjoying the spring time weather. This has been another busy week.
CAMA Meeting Update
The April CAMA meeting was well attended at the new location of OCI (1820 Cumberland Avenue) and thanks to Mike Clark for hosting and providing snacks after a busy weekend moving. There were a number of regular attendees and some folks who were back after a hiatus, we were glad to see the General Managers of the Half Barrel, Buffalo Wild Wings and Tin Roof especially!
City Engineering provided an update on their traffic study regarding the Alcoa Highway interchange and the Metron Center Way intersection and it looks like additional study will need to be done prior to making changes. Policy and Communications offered updates on the Streetscape project which is proceeding with detail design and the Urban Design plan or form based code which is being reviewed independently. KPD also provided an update that showed a number of thefts from motor vehicles. These are typcially crimes of opportunity and we would encourage students, employees, guests and residents to make sure to remove valuables from sight and to lock your vehicles.
Additionally, if your business has promotions or information to share please be sure to visit the Merchants Association Blog over at http://cumberlandcorridor.blogspot.com/. Ana Richters, CAMA intern, is doing a great job, but can always use new information.
