July 4th Planning

Dear Whitland Neighbors 
This notice contains as much information as possible about the 4th July on Whitland Avenue event 
which will take place beginning at 11 AM on Thursday, the 4th of July, 2019. This is the 42nd year of this annual fun-filled family celebration which involves a patriotic program with speaker, a wonderful 
musical presentation, fellowship, & family-styled picnic. If you have never attended before, I can 
promise that you will not be disappointed! 

This notice also serves as a courtesy to inform you that on-street parking will be TEMPORARILY
restricted in the area of Whitland Avenue on Thursday, 4 July 2019 from approximately 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM that day. Please plan to park your vehicle in an alternate location on the event date. Any 
vehicles left in NO PARKING areas during the times listed above will be ticketed and towed at owners' expense. (please refer to attached map). 
We begin setting up for this event on Wednesday, the 3rd July. Although the time is not certain, Crown Tent & Awning will be here sometime during the day (most likely afternoon) of July 3rd to install the 
large tent at the very small block between West End Avenue & Whitland Avenue at Carden. The tent will be there for the duration of the event and will not be removed by the tent company until the 
morning of Friday, July 5th (see attached map please) 

Blinker Lite provides us with barricades for street closures. They will be placed at West End Avenue so that no cars can enter Carden Avenue from West End where the tent is installed. There will also be 
barricades at the intersection of Whitland & Cantrell on the day of the event {4th July) and also at the 
intersection of Whitland & Craighead Avenue the day of the event. This is to insure the safety of all the guests, as the event primarily takes place between these blocks on Whitland Avenue {please refer to 
attached map). The Whitland barricades are removed once the site is cleaned up and everyone has 
safely left the event. The barricades where the large tent is located (see map) will not be removed until the tent is removed (Friday AM, July 5, 2019). 
We will have one port-a-potty available on-site (see map for its location). Since this is a neighborhood event, if you see anyone in need, please offer them assistance at your home. 
We employ Comprehensive Security for the safety of our guests and security at our event. There will be two officers present at all times during the day of the event. Contact telephone number for their office is (615) 485-0800. One of the officers on duty that day can assist you whenever needed.

Additional Comments about Parking 
While this is a neighborhood event and most guests walk to the event, if you have relatives or close friends planning on attending, just make sure they are aware of the temporary street closure 
(barricades) on Whitland Ave. the day of the event on 4th July 2019 and our on-street parking policy during the hours of the event on the 4th• There are side streets of Leonard Avenue or Craighead Avenue 
where visitors may park. But we ask that you make sure that no homeowners' 
driveway is blocked. Please be courteous at all times of others who live in our neighborhood. Carden & Cantrell Avenue side streets are dead-ends and are very narrow - - please do not use these streets for parking unless you reside on these streets. We need to make sure that residents on these narrow dead-end 
streets have access to emergency needs should that arise and parking along these two streets makes that very, very, difficult. 
In the event of an emergency, please notify one of the hosts listed above who will be on-site and available during the days leading up to the event and the day of the event. We will assess the situation and take all measures necessary to insure the absolute safety and comfort of our guests. 
Thank you! 
Please have a safe & happy 4th July
