Improving downtown Knoxville started with the Mayor's Downtown Summit in Sept. 2004. The Summit provided information on the Mayor's and city's approach to downtown and the status of special projects as well as provided an opportunity for city officials to hear suggestions and answer questions on a wide variety of issues and concerns to those who live, work and play downtown.

Following this Summit, the Downtown Advisory Committee was created by the Mayor in Oct. 2004 to aid in identifying priorities needed to spur continued private investment, provide a realistic execution plan with available resources in mind, promote downtown's role as the heart of the city with diverse activities and events, and address priorities identified by participants in the Downtown Summit.

The City of Knoxville will hold two public meetings to review and elicit public comments on the downtown improvement strategy recommended by the Downtown Advisory Committee.

Meetings:
  • Monday, March 28 at 5:30 p.m., KACP/CBID offices, 17 Market Square, primary audience: Downtown Stakeholders
  • Monday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m., KACP/CBID offices, 17 Market Square, primary audience: Neighborhood Stakeholders
