July 24th, 2008

  • Very exciting I hope it will look so much than it does. Don’t waste any time.
  • I thought today’s News Sentinel represented my perception of the direction currently being taken by UT. Partnering on an alternative fuel facility seems like a worthy endeavor. And of course UT athletics (ticket prices) are enjoyed by thousands. However, to my way of thinking, first and foremost, should be providing students with a safe, true campus. I don’t feel that a campus on which one, “takes their life in their on hands,”….a.k.a. Crossing Cumberland, and a campus on which people are constantly confronted by vagrants…is not a “true” campus. It’s an extension of a city on which a university happens to be. I’m a UT Grad. I have three children who have either recently graduated (1) or are currently enrolled (2). This project should be the university’s # 1 priority.
  • 1/8 shared parking: How do you control with gated access? Are parking NEQ less than typical Residential/ Commercial uses? Is TIF Financing going to be available and is so when? When will construction start and finish- If developers can’t obtain a Cumberland to White or Lake Ave. property will access be given for parking at Cumberland?
  • Thank You! I just hope KUB moves the power poles so you can proceed.
  • Power lines + Hospital Traffic + Money/ Grants = Need to Address
  • Interesting meeting; however, I think the parks should be scattered around the campus rather than putting everything onto Mountcastle Park. The surrounding areas, Fort Sanders, Terrace, the side next to 17th Street all would benefit from a park. Spread the parks around the entire community. Imminent Domain is a bad idea!!!!!
  • Interested in changes to Cumberland Ave that extend West of the railroad trestle. The driveway entrance to the “Kingston Pike Building” is immediately on the right after going West under the trestle.
  • I am wondering how long the new codes will take to transform the area if current owners do not have to conform to the new codes.
  • My main concern is property involving the entrance from Cumberland to Day’s Inn. My sister and I own this property. How will this plan affect us?
  • Signage - please no neon signs. What abut a bus stop, didn’t hear about that?
  • As a current student, I would love to have this going into effect to make the “front-porch” of UT. Additionally, this would help the failure rates of businesses in the Summer.
  • The plan is well done- a MUCH needed improvement. When implemented Cumberland will be safer and an attractive corridor. I see the improvements as a great enhancement for UT also.
