September 18th Update

Good afternoon. This has been a busy week behind the scenes. The city has been working with our consultants to meet additional requests from TDOT for our Environmental Clearance document. We have also been working on the proposed Cumberland Ave. Form Code and have a meeting with various deparments next week to review the proposed code and plan the public review process.

Also the link on the right hand side provides the minutes from the September 3 Physical Land Use Subcommittee from the Ft. Sanders Long Range Planning process. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at The next full committee meeting is scheduled for 3:00pm at the Knoxville Museum of Art. Please note the location change.

Thanks and have a great weekend. Go Vols!


  1. Good news on both fronts. Thanks for the hard work from all involved as I feel development in the area is on hold and proper direction for the area is imperative.

    Meanwhile - is there any news of the improvement of the light at the old Metron intersection? It continues to be a safety concern. Anyone else feel that this is a hazard for the area? My feelings are making the interstate intersection right most lane a right turn only might help also. Thoughts?

  2. utdebbie,
    Thanks for your comments! To the best of my knowledge we are still working with KAT and the University to find a solution that will work for everyone. I will try to keep you posted as information is available.
