The first community meeting for the Recode Knoxville zoning code update is scheduled for May 18th at 6 p.m.

The process to modernize Knoxville’s Zoning code is just getting started and this is an opportunity for the community to learn about the project and begin sharing their input.

Attendees will be greeted by representatives from the City of Knoxville and Metropolitan Planning Commission. This will be followed by a presentation from Camiros, the consultants assisting in the ordinance update.

An Open House will immediately follow where staff from the project team will be available to answer questions. Stations will also be set up to collect input from the community and help residents learn more about their current zoning.

The meeting will be held at Central United Methodist Church, 201 3rd Ave in Knoxville.  For more information, contact Amy Brooks at (865) 215-4001 or email
