Everybody loves the Tennessee State Fairgrounds site, it seems, when it's Not In My Back Yard. Or so suggests Metro Councilman Jason Holleman, who told WPLN's Nina Cardona
that a surprising number of constituents in his West Nashville district (which includes far-off Sylvan Park and Richland Creek) have expressed misgivings about shutting down the racetrack/flea market/carnival hub:
"The number of people that have expressed concern about closing it down and doing away with it I think has had an impact on my viewpoint. ...Right now we're closing one thing down without offering an alternative plan, which ultimately limits the choices we have available to us."
Thanks, Sylvan Park. In exchange, you can be the first to host all those residential LED signs
on your turf.
