The pedestrian-friendly qualities of downtowns such as Knoxville are appealing to residents of all ages. This symposium will outline recent trends in urban living for a range of population groups, including retirees, “empty nesters”, families, and young professionals.
What kinds of services and amenities make a residential experience “ageless?” What are the advantages of urban living? How can a city maximize its potential for residential development? We want to focus interest in making Knoxville, and community centers in East Tennessee, attractive, livable places for all ages of life.
