The Technical Report is an in depth review of the City of Knoxville’s current zoning regulations and serves as guideposts for upcoming drafts of the City’s new zoning code.
The July Stakeholder Advisory Committee brought community members together to review an upcoming report and discuss responses to the the first community survey.
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.
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 first community meeting for the Recode Knoxville zoning code update will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, at Central United Methodist Church, 201 Third Ave.

The City of Knoxville and the Metropolitan Planning Commission have launched a new website for Recode Knoxville, the project to update the City’s zoning code. The Recode Knoxville website, which can be found at www.recodeknoxville.com, will host all information regarding the project.
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.
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.
