The Recode Knoxville Kickoff event was held last night and the project and the consultants were officially introduced.

The event was hosted at Central United Methodist Church last night, Thursday, May 18, where Mayor Madeline Rogero and MPC Executive Director Gerald Green welcomed over 100 people to the meeting. They then turned it over to staff from Camiros, the consultants hired to assist in the project, for a presentation (linked below). The presentation was recorded by CTV and can be viewed below. The meeting wrapped up with an open house where community members spoke one-on-one with MPC, City, and Camiros staff.

I'm excited about Camiros being hired for this work. I enjoyed their presentation and am looking forward to the process. I hope that Knoxville will adopt a new zoning ordinance that will protect and provide for open space, promote mixed-use and resource responsible development, facilitate re-use and infill development and encourage density near our city center and along transit corridors. Thank you for this process and project
