“The residents of Forest Hills are proud of their community. Its picturesque and pastoral landscape is highly regarded and commonly cited as the reason why people choose to live in Forest Hills. Residents support the protection of this unique community character as a critical community goal. Scenic vistas, environmental features, and unique landscapes will be protected.”
–City of Forest Hills Comprehensive Plan 2010
The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation has listed Richland Creek as polluted. The headwaters, or the very beginning of Richland Creek, belong to Forest Hills.
The City is working with the Cumberland River Compact and TDEC to find solutions to the polluted waters of our creek. Our goal as a City is to have certified unpolluted waters in Richland Creek by winter 2018.
Help us to meet that goal!
The City of Forest Hills sponsors Recycling Clean Out Day each spring and fall. Since the first Clean Out in 2012, residents have recycled more than fifty tons of material.
