Registration will begin at 5 p.m. in the auditorium of the John T. O'Connor Senior Citizens Center, 611 Winona St.

The Draft Environmental Assessment is currently available on the Public Building Authority's Web site - www.ktnpba.org; the offices of the Metropolitan Planning Commission, KAT and The Knoxville Area Urban League; downtown's Lawson McGhee Library, Bee DeSelm Branch Library, Norwood Branch Library and the South Knoxville Branch Library; Knoxville Center (the City of Knoxville office) and Farragut Towne Hall.

Comments and questions received during Tuesday's hearing and through Dec. 29 will be addressed in writing in the final Environmental Assessment to be submitted to the Federal Transit Administration. Persons may register at the hearing to receive a copy of final Environmental Assessment via mail.

The hearing will begin with a brief summary of the proposed project and the conclusions of the draft Environmental Assessment. Speakers' comments will be recorded by a court reporter, who will also be available after the hearing for those electing not to speak during the formal hearing.

The draft Environmental Assessment examines the potential impacts and benefits of a proposed mixed-use, multi-story transit center on State Street between Commerce and Union Avenues in downtown Knoxville.
