Advance Knox Asking for Community Input on Transportation Projects in the County

Advance Knox Seeks Community Input on Transportation Projects. During what is being called Priorities Week, Knox County is launching the third and final round of community input for Advance Knox where the community is being asked to weigh in on proposed transportation projects.
There will be five in-person and two virtual meetings where attendees will be able to prioritize projects and make comments. Residents can attend any workshop convenient for them.
Meeting dates, times, and locations for in-person workshops are as follows:

  • Monday, Mar. 27: Cansler YMCA (12 p.m.) and Gibbs Middle School (5:30 p.m.)
  • Tuesday, Mar. 28: Brickey McCloud Elementary School (5:30 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, Mar. 29: Northshore Elementary School (5:30 p.m.)
  • Thursday, Mar. 30: Bonny-Kate Elementary (5:30 p.m.)
    Anyone needing special accommodations for the meetings should contact the mayor’s office at (865) 215-2005 to coordinate.
    Virtual meetings will take place at noon on Wednesday, March 29, and Thursday, April 6. Registration is required.
    Additional opportunities will be available on the project website through April 9.
    “Bringing land use and transportation components together is what will set this plan up for success,” said Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs. “Our teams are eager to hear community feedback and move toward adopting a final plan.”
    Knox County’s current Comprehensive Plan hasn’t been updated in almost 20 years. During that time, the county has experienced significant growth and change. Advance Knox is a unique opportunity to align land use and transportation
    goals to create a blueprint for the county’s future. It will help guide decisions about where and how growth occurs and where infrastructure and service investments need to be made in the years to come.
