Knoxville’s zoning ordinance hasn’t undergone a thorough review in half a century.
Recode Knoxville is our chance to adopt modern standards that will support continued development and redevelopment of the City in a manner that uses resources efficiently and builds a strong, sustainable, walkable community.Keep reading about the project
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.
To keep up with questions and requested changes at City Council’s May 14 meeting, staff has documented all discussed items and compiled a list of revisions to be made. See the latest documents here.
Knoxville City Council considered Recode through Article nine at their May 14 meeting. The Articles posted on the Project Documents & Reports page show those changes in green. Council will continue working through the remainder of Draft 5 on their next special meeting on May 30. The meeting will be held at 3:00 pm in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building.
