Did you know that by the year 2040, the Knoxville region will be home to more than 1,000,000 people? That’s nearly 300,000 new residents, and with that growth will come an estimated 240,000 new jobs.

Northwest City Sector
Northwest City Plan Set for Overhaul

Planners want to hear citizens’ ideas about the future of the sector A little more than a decade ago, MPC unveiled a citizen-guided plan for the Northwest City Sector, affecting considerable positive change, like a new campus for South College, the opening of regional Victor Ashe Park, extension of the Papermill Bluff Greenway, and road improvements along Western Avenue, Schaad Road, and Callahan Drive.

Contacting the Planning Commissioners

MPC is streamlining the process for contacting planning commissioners. With an ever-increasing volume of citizen comments coming in the form of email, we needed a more efficient way of managing and distributing those comments so each planning commissioner receives the same information before each meeting. Beginning on July 14, emails sent to commission@knoxmpc.org will be automatically sent to every planning commissioner, as well as several staff members. This process simplifies things on both ends of the e-mail: planning commissioners and staff have access to all correspondence in one place and citizens don't have to find email addresses for 15 commissioners. As always, we welcome your feedback as we introduce this new process. Learn more >>

Going back to the days when Knoxville became an established river town in the late 1700’s, the images and descriptions show that African-Americans have been an integral part of every-day life in the community from the beginning.
