Greetings fellow neighbors!
In less than 2 months (March 15?) we will start the monthly Neighborhood Happy Hours @ Legacy Park. These will follow every 3rd(?) Friday through October. This is our 3rd year of Happy Hours, time flies!
Our March theme will again be a celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. Get your Irish on!!
I’m building a team of folk to help me this year, and I would appreciate your assistance. Here are some areas that you can serve our neighborhood as part of the Happy Hour team. 1. Set up 2. Tear down & cleanup 3. Organize food & drink 4. Promotion 5. Be a sponsor (contribute $ or supply food/ drink) 6. Special guest coordinator (like the owl lady and wine educator).
I’m open to your ideas. You can post them here or message me.
It will be great to come back out and enjoy each other’s company again. Cheers to another season of Happy Hours coming up!
The January 2024 membership list has been posted to the LHHA website. You can access it under the RESOURCES tab.
September 15, 2023 will be the date of our next Happy Hour at Lakemoor Legacy Park & Garden. We want to celebrate those people who stepped out and helped their neighbors recover from the windstorm that blew through here in August. Our Emergency Response Team took action and many others throughout the neighborhood did the same, clearing driveways, creating passages through downed trees in the streets and moving debris. Come share your stories. Come let us recognize all of you that helped so much.
Please bring a dish to share with others and if you have an overabundance of produce from your garden, bring it and share with a neighbor or two. Bring a lawn chair. Bring your kiddos. Bring a beverage.
See you at 5 PM, September 15 at Lakemoor Legacy Park and Garden.
Knox County Engineering and Public Works has informed us that for storm brush to be picked up in LH the following needs to happen:
Anyone wanting this done MUST call the Knox County Engineering and Public Works Dept at #865-215-5800 by August, 30 to include their pickup on the list.
Any brush needs to be within 6 feet side of the road and any brush or logs can’t be over 6 feet in length.
They will only pick up brush/logs. If any trash or construction debris is included, it will not be picked up.
Brush/logs should not be near a fire hydrant or utility poles or lines.
There is not a timeline when this will be collected; but, hopefully by the end of September or a month after 8/30.
It doesn’t sound like Knox County or their contractor is going to ‘street to street’ picking up brush/logs from the storm damage. If you are not on their list, your brush/logs will probably not be collected.
Note: LHHA can’t guarantee that brush/logs will be picked up by the county, but this is what we have been told.

In 2016, the Tennessee Department of Transportation lost three workers in the line of duty. All three were struck by passing motorists. Those tragedies bring the total number of TDOT lives lost to 112. We don’t want to lose another member of our TDOT family. We’re asking you to WORK WITH US.

Drivers that wish to go north on Alcoa Hwy towards downtown Knoxville
- Drivers that wish to go north on Alcoa Hwy towards downtown Knoxville will cross Alcoa Hwy on the new Montlake bridge, turn left on the new feeder road on the east side of Alcoa Hwy and follow that new feeder road to Woodson Dr. There the driver will turn left onto Woodson and right onto Alcoa Hwy.
Traveling southward (towards Maryville) on Alcoa Hwy
- Traveling southward (towards Maryville) on Alcoa Hwy, the exit from Alcoa Hwy to Montlake will no longer be open except to the first 4 residents who front on Montlake (2543, 2535, 2527, and 2519 Montlake). The barrier signage at Alcoa Hwy will indicate “LOCAL RESIDENTS ONLY”, which means ONLY the 4 addresses listed above at this time.
- Those on Lynbrulee, Craghead and Trillium and all other residents who travel Montlake will have to access their properties by exiting at the Maloney bridge and driving through Lakemoor Hills to the intersection of Montlake and Maloney.
- To leave Lakemoor Hills and go southbound on Alcoa Hwy, you will need to drive to Maloney Rd. and enter Alcoa Hwy by driving ¾ of the way around the roundabout and taking the exit to Alcoa Hwy.
- This change will place a great increase in traffic on Maloney Rd. I encourage each of you to have patience and drive the speed limit (30 MPH) to make the roads safe for all.
Western Feeder Road (Lakemoor Hills Side)
- The feeder road on the west side (Lakemoor Hills side) of Alcoa Hwy will be open to 2-way traffic between the Montlake roundabout and the Mt. Vernon bridge. This will allow the residents of Martha Washington Heights to join the Lakemoor Hills residents as we move northward to Woodson to enter Alcoa Hwy.
- The remainder of the western feeder road (from Mt. Vernon bridge southward) will not be continuous to the Maloney bridge until AT&T relocates some telephone poles that restrict the completion of the paving. As we get more information about that progress, we will pass along to you.
Eastern Feeder Road (Martha Washington Heights Side)
- The feeder road on the eastern side of Alcoa Hwy (Martha Washington Heights side) will be 2-way from Mt. Vernon bridge past National Fitness to SHA Automotive.
