The City of Knoxville has hired a consultant to assist the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) with the City’s zoning ordinance update. After releasing a Request for Proposals in June of 2016, a selection committee made up of City, MPC staff and MPC Commissioners selected Camiros, Ltd. from a pool of applicants. Camiros, a full-service planning, zoning, and urban design consultancy located in Chicago, Ill., visited Knoxville earlier this year to gather information and inform their work.
The Public Stakeholder Advisory Committee (the “Committee”) is an ad hoc, advisory committee comprised of community members appointed by Mayor Rogero and affirmed by City Council. The Committee is tasked with providing feedback during the comprehensive update of the City’s zoning ordinance.
