City of Knoxville Celebrates National Public Works Week
Public Works Week
The City of Knoxville is honoring its public works professionals during National Public Works Week, which is May 17-23. The efforts of the City's public works experts touch nearly every aspect of life within Knoxville, through the wide range of services offered by the Public Service, Fleet Services, Parks and Recreation, Engineering and Building Inspections departments.

Henley Street Pedestrian Bridge Temporarily Reopens
Renovation and improvements to the Henley Street pedestrian bridge at Clinch Avenue are not complete, but the bridge has temporarily reopened to accommodate several major events during the next month. The bridge will close again on June 8 for the completion of the scheduled improvements.

Form-Based Code Proposed Changes
Director of Building Inspections Peter Ahrens presented proposed updates to the Form-Based Code (Article 4, Section 4.0 of the City of Knoxville's Zoning Ordinance) at a May 7 public meeting in the Small Assembly Room. The existing code - which shapes urban forms of development on the South Knoxville Waterfront and in the Cumberland Avenue Corridor - addresses new construction. The proposed changes will provide a clear pathway for property owners to modify, renovate or add onto their existing structures.

It includes regular updates, contact information for any questions about the project, and coupons from Cumberland Avenue merchants.
