Tennessee Beer & Wine Festival Donates To The Gateway Project
We love seeing our community at work! Hats off to Tennessee Beer & Wine Festival for their recent donation to the Gateway Donelson - Hermitage project!
The Donelson Gateway Project is an all volunteer cooperative effort whose purpose is to create landscaped “Gateways” to Donelson’s Neighborhoods and Business District. Beginning in April 2008, the site known as ”Phase 1″ of the project, located at interchange of Lebanon Road – Briley Parkway, began the process of addressing each entrance to the community. Since then additional sites have been added including the Donelson Branch Library in 2009 then Bel-Aire Bluff and The South Entrance in 2010 with additional sites being added each season.
This grassroots effort began after the completion of the lengthy Briley Parkway expansion project. A few concerned citizens approached state officials to address the grey concrete vistas left from the construction. After receiving the “green light” from TDOT, organizers moved forward with a plan to fill the lifeless void with nature’s beauty.
