Zoning

Recently I communicated with you about the zoning on the west side of Sherrod Road, north of Mimosa. I need to make some corrections. The east side of Sherrod Road is zoned R-3. The five feet on the west side of should be zoned R-2. I quote from a rezoning ordinance passed by the Knoxville City Council at a meeting on July 6, 1985 entitled "An Ordinance to rezone property of Kern's Inc from R-2 . . .to I-3, east of Chapman Highway, west side of Sherrod Street . . . - MPC approved I-3 General Industrial District with a 5' buffer strip at eastern portion to property (west of Sherrod St) to be eft in the R-2, General Residential District) (11-3) (5-U-82-RZ).

Mu-sd Magnolia Avenue

I visited the MPC in January and they showed me the zoning plans for this area and how it would provide the opportunity for higher density use on these 50' lots. Now, reviewing what is allowed and the requirements within that zoning and their limitations, nothing but single family houses can be built on these lots. I own 1425 Woodbine Avenue, at the meeting we discussed building a smaller multi unit (condos) / townhouse development, but per the minimum requirements in the new zoning that will not be allowed. I am confused, does the City of Knoxville want people to redevelop its urban core or not? Unless I am missing something, which is very possible, it looks like it does not based on these zoning requirements. If I could get some insight into this, that would be beneficial as I have held this lot for potential development and now it looks to be worthless to me.

Building Limits

A new neighbor moved in to the house next to my daughter. He proceeded to build a shed on that ends right on their property line. Is this legal-thought there had to be a certain space between buildings.

How does Rezone Knoxville affect residents who reside within the 37921 Empowerment Zone. Please do NOT reply with a host of terms which will require a Thesaurus to comprehend the nature of your response. Thank you in advance for your applied effort.

Recode

For the past year, our community has been updated on RECODE by a handful of dedicated professionals/homeowners who work tirelessly attending meetings, and workshops to supply our community with the readers digest form of updates which has been a mammoth task to say the least. We thank and appreciate their dedication immensely because this whole process has been way too confusing for the average homeowner to comprehend. It's been stated that there has been 80 public meetings and workshops, most of us cannot attend due to a timeframe that interferes with work obligations. Why not communicate via US Mail earlier? Why not mail a survey on public opinion?? Finally homeowners get a vague letter mailed to their homes in February advising on the upcoming vote? Wow!
