Thanks to the Harpeth River Watershed Association and Metro Public Works who together cleaned up over 10 tons of flood debris from the common area of Boone Trace subdivision.
The debris floated to the area last May. Some came from the flooded homes in the neighborhood; some debris traveled from far away.
We carted off tires, fencing, decking, railroad ties, trash cans, basketball goals, a gas grill, a computer monitor, cases of soda and beer, even someone’s bagged recyclables.
Because of the destruction from the recent flood, there will be a tree planting in the Bellevue area. Specific neighborhoods targeted for the planting are Poplar Creek Estates, River Park, Rolling River Estates and Sheffield on the Harpeth. Here are the details:
November 20 is ReLeafing Day.
Bring your family, your organization, your service club, your school and help Bellevue recover from the great flood in May as we plant trees on ReLeafing Day.
Our goal is to plant 300 trees to help increase our urban canopy and reduce storm water run off.
