The Sequoyah Hills Preservation Society
The Sequoyah Hills Preservation Society was founded in 1997 for the purpose of preserving, improving and making more beautiful the common areas of Sequoyah Hills for the enjoyment of its residents and our community. The Sequoyah Hills Preservation Society merged with the Kingston Pike-Sequoyah Hills Association on July 1, 2015. It is now the Beautification and Preservation Committee with the same responsibilities that it had as the Sequoyah Hills Preservation Society.
Here is a partial list of the SHPS's past and current projects:
- Installation of monuments for E.V. & J.W. Ferrell as developers of Sequoyah Hills and for Robert L. Foust as the developer of the Talahi Subdivision.
- Installation of bronze plaques chronicling the history of the Indian Mound on Cherokee Blvd. and the Peter Blow Ferry.
- $2,500 to Sequoyah Elementary School to enhance the landscaping of the playground and park area.
- $6,000 to repair Panther Fountain and surrounding benches.
- $4,400 annual landscaping contract for 8 intersection islands.
