Recode Zoning Charts

Though the names of zones have changed through Recode Knoxville, the uses of those zones have largely stayed the same. Charts are now available that illustrate the changes made to each type of zone. Notes are included to explain major changes in each zone. The charts present percentage shares of old zoned acreage in new Recode zones. Percentage shares that are very small may not be visible on the chart, but values are shown in the legend.

Zoning 101

Knoxville-Knox County Planning worked with the Urban LeagueSEEED and Centro Hispano to help gather input from traditionally underrepresented sectors of the city.

Part of that outreach was a Zoning 101 document, designed to explain how zoning affects residents and businesses. This document is available in both English and Spanish.
