May 17 and 18 were busy with meetings for the Recode Knoxville zoning code update. Members of the project team spent those two days presenting an overview of the project to various groups.
The Recode Knoxville Kickoff event was held last night where the project and the consultants were officially introduced.
After nearly 60 years, the City of Knoxville is updating its zoning ordinance.
A lot has changed since that time, which is remembered for the Market House fire in downtown, the expansion of UT, and the annexation of Fountain City, Bearden, West Hills, Norwood, and Gresham. The end result will be a modernized code that will help shape the city for the next 20-40 years.
