Additional Comments:

Exercise B
How your community will be part of a regional vision

Oakwood/Lincoln Park:  All neighborhood residents will be employed and will have the opportunity to walk to where they need to go (work, shopping, etc.) – and because of increased exercise through walking…more people will be fit and communities will become more integrated.

Island Home: More <younger> families would remain in the neighborhood and not have to move to have access to better education system.  Neighborhoods could enjoy the river (through “river taxis”) – and use alternate transportation.

Old Sevier: There will be more parks and a revitalization of Sevier Ave.

Inskip: There will be more green space, trees, playgrounds, and less apartments – no more problems due to drug abuse/use

City of Knoxville: Improved environment would keep homes occupied – helping to solve the homeless problem & no more families would be moving away because of the quality of education available
