This is a petition to preserve the land at 200 Caudill Drive, Hendersonville, TN and use it only for a Johnny and June Carter Cash Memorial Park.

There is nothing else better to do with this land.For 35 years, Johnny and June Carter Cash called this land their home.

Their residence at 200 Caudill Drive, designed by famed architect Braxton Dixon, was and still is a landmark and a source of pride for this community.

Family, fans and friends alike visit the property daily to pay respects to the Cashes. People are known to travel from around the world to visit this property.

We have Graceland for Elvis. We've even preserved the birthplace and final homes of infamous outlaws, Jesse and Frank James. How can we not do the same for the Cashes? We should definitely do the same for Johnny and June. They are American Icons. It was very sad to everyone when Johnny and June's home burned down, so it is only fitting that the right thing be done, and this be turned into a memorial park, dedicated to them.

As stated previously, this was their home for 35 years and it's the one place that only they ever got to call home. Some believe fate kept the Gibbs from ever living there, but even they didn't want to destroy the home but to treasure the home and preserve it. This place was only ever meant for the Cashes. We should honor them by keeping it that way. If you agree and would love to see a memorial park on this property, in their honor, please sign the petition.

We, the residents of Hendersonville and/or fans of Johnny and June Cash, stand united in our opposition to the rezoning request filed on behalf of James Gresham to build a rehab center on the site of Johnny Cash's former home.

200 Caudill Drive is located in a residential neighborhood on a residential street and is ill-equipped for a commercial venture of this sort. We do not believe the proposed rezoning to be the highest and best use of this historic property.

We call upon the Hendersonville Regional Planning Commission to reject the rezoning request scheduled for a public hearing on September 2, 2014 and for the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to uphold the will of the people by maintaining the current zoning.


Thank you kindly!
