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
Knoxville City Council will consider Recode Knoxville at its regularly scheduled meeting on July 16. In addition to the ordinance update, Council will also consider a list of proposed zoning map revisions. The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Main Assembly Room of the City County Building.
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.
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.
