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.

Local Population Projections and Growth Expectations

Knoxville is growing and will continue to do so. In the next few decades, we expect thousands of new residents to call our city home. The update of the city’s zoning ordinance will help prepare the community for that growth, striking a balance between protecting valued traits of existing neighborhoods and creating vibrant new communities to accommodate all residents.

Consideration by the Planning Commission Delayed

The Planning Commission was originally scheduled to vote on Recode Knoxville at their regularly scheduled meeting on November 8, 2018. While it will still be on the agenda for discussion, staff will not recommend taking action. Instead, consideration will be delayed until December or later. Prior to the meeting on December 13, two day-long workshops will be scheduled for the Stakeholder Advisory Committee and workshops are being scheduled for City Council and the Planning Commission to enable in-depth discussion of specific topics.
