Recode Knoxville – both the text and the map – passed on second reading at City Council’s August 13 meeting. The Stakeholder Advisory Committee will reconvene this fall to work on points of clarification requested by Council for later consideration. The ordinance will go into effect on January 1, 2020.

In addition to approving the ordinance, they also voted to approve the accompanying zoning map on first reading. Both the ordinance and map are on the agenda for a second reading at the August 13 meeting.
