Just wanted to encourage you and neighbors to vote Saturday, August 6th in the special election for Place 2 City Council. All candidates deserve consideration too. It will be a low turnout election so your vote will make a BIG difference.
What Did They Say at PfCONA’s July 11 Candidate Forum?
Once again neighbors on Pigeon Forge Drive and other Gatlinburg streets will celebrate National Night Out. Nothing fancy here: just residents meeting and learning how to prevent crime. This is the 4th year the block party has been co-hosted by Jollie Williams and Clay Leben.
The Gatlinburg neighborhood will be having a Christmas Cookie Swap on Saturday, Dec 12th at 5pm at the City Rec Center on Immanuel Drive. All are invited to bring fresh baked cookies to swap. The swap lasts until all cookies are gone (a matter of minutes) so come a little early for setting up! Continue reading Sign Up for Gatlinburg Cookie Swap→

Introducing our neighborhood’s web site to discuss and vote up or down GNA ideas: http://gnafriends.ideascale.com/. Write up your own proposal, comment on other’s ideas, and vote your favorites up to the top. Its another way social networking and polling can bring diversity of opinions more into the open.
Here is another way to discuss ideas on the Internet that stimulates a back and forth dialog with elements of voting mixed in. Its pretty simple to use. Just give it a try by proposing a new idea or commenting and voting on others. When people comment on your ideas, you’ll receive an email alert. For more information, see IdeaScale.
Let’s see if we can put our ideas together. Are two heads better than one?
