On April 16, 2014, more than 60 people- City Council members and East Knoxville residents and business leaders - shared ideas last Wednesday on the Magnolia Avenue Streetscapes plan during a public forum at the John T. O'Connor Senior Citizens Center.
Participants got a close look at renderings and details on the long-range project - which can be viewed online here.
Knoxvillians were invited to look at the proposal and offer their comments through April 30, 2014.
Officials presented schematic designs for the Magnolia Avenue Streetscapes project, based on recommendations outlined in the 2009 MPC Magnolia Avenue Corridor Plan - which can be viewed online here.
One of three nodes, or centers of activity, along the three-mile corridor was recommended for initial designation as a model block, and a consultant, Kimley-Horn and Associates Inc., developed a detailed Streetscapes design for that block. The block spans from Jessamine Street to North Bertrand Street.
