Knoxville area residents, workers and business owners jumped at the chance to weigh in on the City’s zoning ordinance update. A recent survey addressed a variety of issues and topics across the City, related to neighborhoods, commercial areas, transportation and sustainability. The survey was open from June 19 – July 12, 2017 and received 1,638 responses.View the Survey Responses (PDF)
In addition to the survey responses, 140 people took a few extra minutes to provide detailed comments about the update. The survey results and comments will be used to inform the project.
“The preferences of residents, property owners, and business owners will help appropriately shape the city and enhance our sense of place for the next 20-40 years,” said Gerald Green, Executive Director of the MPC.
