As Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) moves into its third and final year leadership is looking ahead with an eye toward finding ways to ensure the project’s important work continues past 2013.


As Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) moves into its third and final year leadership is looking ahead with an eye toward finding ways to ensure the project’s important work continues past 2013. A “Challenge Grant” has been issued to identify an organization(s), joint venture and/or parternship to assume the reins and continue the regional dialogue. 

A Request for Proposals (RFP) has been issued to identify an entity to assume the role of convenor after direct involvement of the lead planning agencies—the Knoxville-Knox County Metropolitan Planning Commission and the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization—concludes in December 2013.

The PlanET process was created to develop a long-term, regional strategy to ensure our long-term competitiveness and to maintain the things that make life in East Tennessee great. While that strategy can be created in three years, it will take much longer to carry it out.  Can your organization help or be involved as a partner in ensuring that this regional dialogue continues?

Organizations interested in submitting a proposal can review the PlanET "Challenge Grant" RFP at http://www.cityofknoxville.org/purchasing/bids/0201_planet.pdf.  The deadline for proposals is February 1, 2013 at 11 AM.
