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

Tennessee Bicycle Laws
In Tennessee, a bicycle has the legal status of a vehicle. This means that bicyclists have full rights and responsibilities on the roadway and are subject to the regulations governing the operation of a motor vehicle. Tennessee traffic laws require bicyclists to:
- 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

Nolensville Rd widening (Jan 2017 Update)
The TN Department of Transportation is in the appraisal and acquisition process for Phase I (North of Mill Creek to SR-254 Old Hickory Blvd). Pending the availability of construction funding, Phase I is anticipated to begin construction in the fourth quarter of 2018. Construction of Phase I is anticipated to take a minimum of two years. The Department will begin the appraisal and acquisition process for Phase II (South of Burkitt Road at the county line to North of Mill Creek) while construction of Phase I is ongoing. The Department is continuing with the development of Phase II ROW plans at this time. A public design meeting has been scheduled internally by the Department for March 2, 2017. This meeting will allow members of the community to learn about Phase II of the project and provide comments and concerns. Additional details concerning the meeting and public notices will be issued in the coming weeks.
