The Recode Knoxville project will include public workshops, open houses, surveys, and charrettes.
These events and tools will allow us to gather input and listen to community members. Public hearings will also be held during the project's adoption phase. The zoning recode process will include these and other outreach methods to fully vet the new zoning ordinance with the public, boards, and commissions.
This will not be a top-down review. We need to hear what works best from residents, business owners and developers.
-Mayor Madeline Rogero
Your Participation is Important
Throughout the process, we will provide opportunities to the public to monitor our work and give feedback.
To achieve a high standard of involvement, our community must:
Project website, event calendars, email newsletters, social media updates (Facebook, Twitter)
Stakeholder outreach, public hearings, community presentations
In addition to these public forums, zoning projects also require reaching out to key stakeholder groups
Often the input needed from developers, business owners, and similar groups are not fully communicated in public forums. As part of our outreach, we will seek out these key groups, organize special meetings, and attend their scheduled events to get their input.
