Outreach Series 2 Meeting in a box is designed to encourage group conversation about the future residents want to see for the region. It then asks participants to prioritize ideas for a regional vision and finally to identify how these future priorities will apply to individual communities.
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
