Bradford Hills neighborhood is in the Midtown Hills precinct. 615-880-1411
The Fall newsletter was mailed via USPS this week (11/10) to homeowners. Included is your favorite notice, your 2018 annual dues notice. If you own in Bradford Hills and do not get your notice by Mon Nov 20, please contact Kim at his office email and ask for a copy to be sent (and verify your address with him).
If you need another copy of the Newsletter, or the Dues notice, they are found under the “Communications” tab on the website main page.
PS: If you live in another neighborhood, do not mail us a dues payment. We get several every year from people who live elsewhere (the wonders of social media).
How about being rewarded for a beautiful home and lot? That’s right. We want to reward and recognize homeowners who maintain their home’s exterior and lot. Your property is a visual asset to the neighborhood.
Submit a photo from the street of your exterior property, with a supporting paragraph describing why your home, or a home of a neighbor, should be recognized as the “Yard of the Month” for Bradford Hills. Be sure to include the homeowner name, address, and your name and address (if nominating a neighbor).
Send your photos to YardOfTheMonth@BradfordHillsHomes.com

- Ride on the right-hand side of the road with the same direction as traffic
- Obey all traffic signs and signals
- Use hand signals to communicate intended movements
- Equip their bicycles with a front white light visible from 500 feet and either a red reflector or a lamp emitting a red light which shall be visible from a distance of at least five hundred feet (500′) to the rear
In addition, the TN Child Bicycle Safety Act requires that:
- All bicycle operators under 16 years of age must wear a bicycle helmet on any highway, street, or sidewalk
- All child passengers under 40 pounds or 40 inches must be seated and secured in a child restraining seat or a bicycle trailer
