View Comments About Downtown North Redevelopment
The Downtown North Public Meeting was held July 8th with over 150 people in attendance.

The city presented information on a number of fronts all directed at revitalizing the commercial and residential areas just north of downtown Knoxville.

As stated by Bill Lyons the “goal is to move from disinvestment to reinvestment” The largest segment of the program was devoted to a presentation by MPC staff on the development of a mixed use community built around a road diet and form based codes.

Comments on the proposals varied but the clear majority supported the concepts and want the process to proceed. Please CLICK HERE to review written comments that were received.

A follow up meeting will be held on July 22nd once again at the Knox County Health Department on Dameron Avenue at 5:30 in the evening.

Any body that desires to make comments in the meantime should send them to bwhetsel@cityofknoxville.org and they will be posted to the website as well.
