The Cumberland Avenue Project division guides the City in the creation of a more inviting, vibrant and safe Cumberland Avenue that enhances the connections to the University of Tennessee and area employers and improves the residential and retail character of the district while providing for all modes of transportation.

The Cumberland Avenue Corridor Plan, adopted by MPC on April 12, 2007 and by City Council on May 8, 2007, provides groundwork for the project.

There are two components to the Project as outlined in the Corridor Study, 1) a Streetscape Plan, and 2) an Urban Design Plan.

STREETSCAPE PLAN - CONCEPT DESIGNS

The Streetscape Plan proposes a “road diet” for Cumberland reducing the street from four lanes to three lanes. The City hosted a public meeting on November 9, 2010 to review the detail design work and discussed options for utility placement.

Submit email comments to Anne Wallace at awallace@cityofknoxville.org. Please submit comments by close of business, November 23 2010.

URBAN DESIGN PLAN - FORM BASED CODE

The Cumberland Avenue Corridor Plan, adopted in 2007, calls for a Form Based Code (FBC) to implement the recommendations of the Urban Design Plan. Below is a draft of the Cumberland Avenue FBC that has been extensively reviewed and edited by MPC and City staff. The draft was presented at a public meeting on Nov. 12, 2009. The document is currently being reviewed by an independent consultant, Code Studio, out of Texas. A public meeting will be announced in the future regarding Code Studio's recommendations.

If you have any questions or comments about the code, please contact Anne Wallace, Cumberland Ave. Project Manager, at awallace@cityofknoxville.org or 865-215-2029.
