Appointments to the Neighborhood Advisory Council
NAC Application (PDF)
Neighborhood Advisory Council
Office of Neighborhoods
Knoxville's Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) is appointed by the Mayor and consists of at least 15 members — two members from each of the six City Council districts, and at least three at-large members. A member representing a particular City Council district must live in that district. At-large members also must live in the City.

The membership of the NAC is intended to reflect the diversity of neighborhoods in Knoxville.

When a vacancy occurs, the Community Development director and the neighborhoods coordinator solicit names from City Council, neighborhood groups, and NAC itself. They make recommendations to the Mayor, who makes the appointment. City Council typically is asked to express its support for the appointments.

The NAC currently has 15 seats. Any city resident who wishes to be considered for appointment to the Council is urged to attend some of the NAC meetings. To apply for a seat, or to recommend someone for appointment, download and fill out the application form (PDF). Print and mail the form to:

   Neighborhood Coordinator
   Office of Neighborhoods
   Room 528
   City of Knoxville
   P.O. Box 1631
   Knoxville, TN 37901

NAC members serve staggered terms of three years. Anyone appointed to an unexpired term may be appointed to a subsequent three-year term. Members are eligible for appointment to a second three-year term, but they must reapply for the seat and compete for the appointment along with any new applicants. Anyone who has been off the NAC for at least three years may return to the NAC for another full term.

Terms are limited to insure that, over time, a large number of neighborhoods have a voice on the NAC; to encourage new perspectives; and to help train new leaders and expose them to citywide issues and policy matters.

Questions about the application process or the form may be addressed to David Massey, neighborhood coordinator, at 215-3232.
