Case Notes

Conditions:
Staff recommends the following measures to increase safety and preserve sensitive land on the steep slopes and along the creek. The following conditions would apply if the rezoning is approved:
1. Grading of steep slopes should be kept to a minimum per the Hillside and Ridgetop Protection Plan guidelines.
2. Development should not occur in the floodplains or the floodway.
3. The Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department has requested a trail easement on the southern border of the property to encompass proposed walking trails.
4. Housing and development should be clustered on the flatter portion of the property (containing slopes ranging from 0% to 15%) to reduce the amount of land disturbed, protect the retention and filtration capabilities of the property, and mitigate erosion on the steeper slopes on the southern portion of the property.


After the Planning Commission
Because of its location in the County, it will be heard by Knox County Commission.
