City of Knoxville One Year Plan

The City's Charter mandates the annual adoption of a one year comprehensive development plan covering the entire city and requires future zoning decisions in the city conform to the community's comprehensive development plans.

The Metropolitan Planning Commission and the City Council use the OYP to evaluate individual rezoning requests. Every parcel of land in Knoxville has been assigned a OYP land-use classification. Each classification contains an acceptable range of zones.

2017 One Year Plan Update

Three meetings have been scheduled to kickoff the annual update of Knoxville's One Year Plan. At these meetings, MPC staff will be present to discuss:

  • Amendments occurring in the previous year
  • Proposed amendments for newly annexed property
  • Proposed staff amendments for 2017.

Comments and questions from community members present will be sought.

Meetings are specific to the MPC planning sectors. Contact us if you are not sure which meeting to attend.
