I am reaching out to share some information about two upcoming meetings for the Alcoa Highway Corridor Study. I hope you’ll share this with neighbors and others in the community who may be interested. Please let me know if you have any questions or need more information. Thanks so much!
Knoxville-Knox County Planning staff is undertaking a small area study for the portion of Alcoa Highway within Knox County. This work follows a design charette that was held by the East Tennessee Community Design Center in 2019. In 2020, the City of Knoxville and Knox County each approved resolutions for Planning to undertake a study to develop an approach and policies to envision and manage development along the highway. The final recommendations will look at land uses along the corridor, considering specific changes needed to spur that redevelopment and encourage retail, commercial, and increased housing.
To share more about this project, we have scheduled two community meetings on September 30, 2021.

A presentation will be given, followed by time for questions.
In-Person Community Meeting
Sevier Heights North Campus, 2939 Alcoa Hwy, Knoxville, TN 37920

We hope you’ll be able to join us!
