September 28, 2011 | More News


MPC staff is drafting a major overhaul of the Knoxville-Knox County Minimum Subdivision Regulations, with proposed changes to be released for public review in the next couple of months.

Changes are also intended to eliminate confusion between MPC's subdivision standards and requirements that have been adopted by the City of Knoxville and Knox County in their ordinances and design regulations. MPC staff has been working with city and county engineering departments over the past few months to ensure coordination and compatibility among all departments.

The draft amendments to the Minimum Subdivision Regulations will be available on MPC's website once they are completed. A public workshop will be held within two months of the release of the draft.
