In March 2009, the City and MPC staff organized a stakeholder meeting for the Fort Sanders area in response to a request for long rang planning. The meetings have been held monthly on the first Thursday of the month at the Baker Center. The boundaries for this area are generally World's Fair Park to the east, the intersection of Kingston Pike and Neyland Dr. to the west, Grand Ave. and industrial properties to the north, and the Tennessee River to the south.
At the inital and subsequent meetings of stakeholders, the group identified several opportunities and constraints within the neighborhood including land use issues and quality of life issues. It was determined that the committee should be divided into to two subcommittees on: 1) Physical Land Use, and 2) Quality of Life. These subcommittees are meeting on the alternate month from the full committee.
Both of these subcommittees met on July 2 and notes from those meetings are available in the Links section on this page. The next full stakeholder committee meeting will be on August 6 at the Baker Center
