A series of new directional signs are now in place leading visitors to Collierville right to the Downtown Historic District. The new directional signs are part of the Town's tourism initiative and were a cooperative effort between the Town and Main Street Collierville. The directional signs are on HWY 385 at the HWY 72 exit, and another set of signs have been installed at HWY 72 and Center Street.
With the completion of HYW 385 last year and the expected build out of I-269, traffic volume is increasing along Collierville's southern corridor.

Homeowners Associations have been a part of residential neighborhood lifestyles for much longer than most realize. HOA's, as they are now called, actually took roots during the mid-19th century. People began leaving agricultural areas to take jobs in the city, yet chose to live outside of the overcrowded, dusty, noisy growing urban area.
In Collierville, homeowner associations are plentiful and varied and include associations for zero-lot-line owners, condominiums, and homes that are multi-family or single households.
Pat Evans, Secretary of Mansfield HOA at Winchester and Peyton Parkway comments that HOA membership is "a way to take ownership and have input in what goes on in your subdivision. It also gives us a chance to know our neighbors." This HOA includes four neighborhoods, Mansfield, The Village, Downing Place and Whitworth.
