Annual One Year Plan Update Gets Underway

January 22, 2018 | More News

The Metropolitan Planning Commission is beginning the annual update of the One Year Plan for the City of Knoxville.

What is the One Year Plan?

The City of Knoxville’s One Year Plan (OYP) serves as the foundation for zoning decisions and is based on the land-use goals, objectives, and policies found in the City’s long-range plans. Updated yearly, it is guided by public input to ensure that it is current and accurate when used to promote community growth, preservation, and enhancement.

How does the One Year Plan affect me?

MPC and City Council use the OYP to evaluate individual rezoning requests. Every parcel of land in Knoxville is assigned a OYP land-use classification with a range of acceptable zones. If a requested zoning change does not fall within that range, a plan amendment is required for rezoning.

How do I get involved?

There will be three public meetings in February. Community members are encouraged to attend to ask questions and comment on proposed updates.

Topics of discussion at these meetings will include:
