Cumberland Ave. CorridorSeptember 6, 2013 - The final draft of the Cumberland Avenue Form-Based Code has been compiled by Code Studio of Austin, Texas, after a series of public meetings, including meetings on April 4th and June 18th of this year.

The Final Draft of the Form-Based Code for the Cumberland Avenue Corridor is available for review at www.cityofknoxville.org/cumberland.

This document is scheduled to be heard at the regular Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) meeting on Thursday, Sept. 12th. The agenda for that meeting can be found at http://agenda.knoxmpc.org. The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building, 400 Main St. For questions about the meeting, contact MPC at 865-215-2500.
