The Plan East Tennessee Playbook is a high-level roadmap to ensure our region remains beautiful, becomes healthier and offers pathways to success for our residents. The Playbook is the result of several years of work and the efforts of over 30 organizations and thousands of people from the five-county PlanET region.
The strategies identified are voluntary and implementable recommendations that connect our vision to specific actions. These strategies can be used by any community to create more prosperous places.
The potential for long-term change within the region is tremendous. By 2040 almost 300,000 new people and 240,000 new jobs will call East Tennessee home. To achieve our vision of a premier region of choice and opportunity, we must have a clear strategy for growth and development. The Preferred Growth Concept provides a strategic focus for how the region can accommodate population and job growth while balancing prosperity, livability and stewardship.
