  1. Luncheon to Feature “Bringing It All Back Home” Presentations

 

Members of the Neighborhood Advisory Council have come up with some inspiring ideas for the “Bringing It All Back Home” presentations at the Neighborhood Awards and Networking Luncheon on Saturday, March 5, at the Knoxville Convention Center.

 

Six to eight organizations will present slide shows of innovative projects around the city — and demonstrate that some solutions aren’t as difficult as one might think.

 

There are often problems or opportunities in our neighborhoods where solutions, funding, partners and resources do not seem to be readily at hand. These presentations are meant to inspire neighborhood groups to identify possible community-building programs and improvement projects in their own neighborhoods.

 

What do we want you to take back home from the March 5 Luncheon?  Even a single story, idea, or “how-we-did-it” anecdote might inspire you and your neighbors into action.

 

*** Learn how a single caring neighbor started out with a plan to clean up trash on her street — and reaped benefits she did not envision.

 

*** See how a group of young people responded to very difficult problems in their community by organizing a youth-led, youth-run summit.

 

*** Gain insight into how a business alliance conducts micro-fundraising events that provide financial support to worthy community projects.

 

These presentations are just one part of the March 5 luncheon. For details, see article below.

 

  1. Ride KAT for Free to the Luncheon

 

Need a Ride to the Neighborhood Luncheon?

 

There are several options for folks to get to the Knoxville Convention Center at 701 Henley Street on Saturday, March 5.

 

First, if you can get to a bus line, you can ride KAT for no charge. KAT buses will run a regular Saturday schedule on Saturday, March 5. Just tell the driver you are going to the Neighborhood Awards Luncheon, and you will ride for free.

 

Some bus routes go by the Convention Center. If not, you can ride to the Knoxville Station and then transfer to a free trolley to the Convention Center. See the KAT website — http://katbus.com/ADA/schedules.php  — for routes and schedules.

 

Once you are at the Luncheon, stop by the KAT booth to get your free bus pass for the ride home. Be sure to stop by their booth before 12:15 p.m. when booths close.

 

If you know several neighbors going to the Luncheon, think about setting up your own carpool. Include neighbors who might not otherwise feel comfortable driving or parking downtown. You can drop them off at the Ballroom Circle on Cumberland Avenue before you park.

 

It’s all about being neighborly and helping to get folks to a great event. Questions may be directed to Debbie Sharp at 215-4382 or dsharp@knoxvilletn.gov.

 

Parking will be available free of charge at both the Poplar Street parking lot across Cumberland Avenue from the Convention Center and at the Locust Street Garage.

  1. Next Week: Get the Skinny on Fort Dickerson Park

 

Mayor Madeline Rogero, City Councilman Nick Pavlis, city officials and the Aslan Foundation will hold a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24, to discuss the recent road realignment of Fort Dickerson Park’s entrance and future improvements to the park. The meeting will take place at Flenniken Landing, 115 Flenniken Ave.

 

Last year, the City completed the $1.4 million Fort Dickerson Roadway Realignment Project that included the addition of a much-needed traffic signal for the park’s main entrance off of Chapman Highway. Fort Dickerson Road was realigned with Woodlawn Pike and now includes approximately 475 feet of a new two-lane road complete with sidewalk access.

 

City officials are now preparing to move forward with construction of the park’s entrance improvements, which include landscaping, signage, a new transit stop and a decorative veneer for the 30-foot-high retaining wall. Carol R. Johnson Associates Inc. is the project’s design contractor.

 

In 2015, the Aslan Foundation acquired and then donated the former G & R Automotive property to the City, and City Council approved the contract with Bell & Associates to demolish the building on the property. The donated property is located adjacent to Fort Dickerson Park’s Chapman Highway entrance and is part of the landscaping improvement project.

 

Additionally, City Parks and Recreation has $275,000 in funding to improve access to the quarry lake and the overlook. City officials will be seeking input on the entrance and park improvements and provide an update on management of the quarry lake this spring.

 

Fort Dickerson Park includes 85 acres of green space and hiking and mountain biking trails, the quarry lake and a historic Civil War fort. For more information on Fort Dickerson Park, please visit www.knoxvilletn.gov/parks.

 

  1. KCDC to Provide Update on Five Points Master Plan

 

Knoxville’s Community Development Corp. (KCDC), the public housing agency for Knoxville, will hold a “Five Points Master Plan Update Meeting” from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 29, at the Walter P. Taylor Boys and Girls Club, 317 McConnell Street.

 

“The Five Points Master Planning Team will present final renderings of the senior housing development being constructed at the corner of Bethel Avenue and McConnell Street.” KCDC reports. “The team also will continue the discussion about the next phases of the Five Points Master Plan.”

 

Pizza and beverages will be provided.

 

  1. BZA Decisions Can Impact Your Neighborhood

 

Nine properties are on the agenda for this week’s meeting of the Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA).

 

Established by city ordinance, BZA hears appeals of denials of building permits by the city’s Building Inspections Department. The board, consisting of five citizens appointed by the Mayor, meets on the third Thursday of each month.

 

BZA meets at 4 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building. Addresses on the agenda include 2308 Forest Avenue, 220 Carrick Street, 203 N. Seven Oaks Drive, 835 N. Central Avenue, 1239 Forest Brook Road, 2701 Sevier Avenue, 200 Jennings Avenue, 1045 Maryville Pike, and 5820 Clinton Highway.

 

Variance requests on these properties include reduction of the minimum number of required parking spaces, doubling the number of signs permitted, reduction of minimum required rear yard setback, and reduction of setback required for a detached on-premise sign.

 

Keep up with how the BZA might impact your neighborhood. Watch for the black and white signs indicating that there is a pending decision on a particular piece of property. Most signs are for Metropolitan Planning Commission issues — which are also important — but signs with the word “variance” are BZA items.

 

The BZA agenda is posted on the city website. Browse to www.knoxvilletn.gov/boards and click on Board of Zoning Appeals. The agenda is posted no later than the Monday prior to the BZA meeting each month.

 

A neighborhood group that keeps track of BZA will call the Plans Review & Inspections Department at 215-3669 to request and study the paperwork on a particular appeal, decide whether to take a position on the appeal, and then attend the BZA meeting to voice the group’s support or objections. A group can also request a postponement to allow time to meet with the applicant.

 

Decisions of the BZA can be appealed within 15 days of the BZA decision to Knoxville City Council. Appeals of a City Council decision are made to Chancery Court within 60 days of a City Council decision related to BZA.

  1. More Roads? Safer Roads? Expand transit? More Bike Lanes?

 

The Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) is asking citizens to take a brief, online survey, the results of which will aid in the update of the Long Range Regional Mobility Plan 2040 for the Knoxville Region.

 

According to TPO, this plan “is the big picture for how we should invest federal dollars in our transportation system over the next 20 plus years. Not only does it describe our vision for the future, it also lists all projects that we anticipate our region will undertake in the coming decades.”

 

Moreover, TPO says, “The project list is one of the critical elements of the plan. Local transportation projects cannot use federal funding unless they are on this list. We also cannot spend more money than we expect to receive. For this reason, how we select projects is critical.”

 

TPO compiles a list of factors to consider when selecting projects — “criteria that best reflect our community’s needs and vision for the future.” The survey is designed to gather public sentiment for these criteria.

 

For example, respondents are asked to rank these eights types of projects, from most important to least important: 1) build new roads, 2) expand transit to areas currently without service, 3) increase transit service where it already exists, 4) maintenance of roads and bridges, 5) neighborhood traffic safety, 6) sidewalks, greenways and bicycle lanes, 7) technology to improve traffic flow, and 8) widened roads to reduce congestion.

 

Take the survey. It takes about five minutes. If you do not have Internet access, you can make arrangements to take the survey by calling Dori Canon at 215-2694.

 

  1. Urban League to Hold Job Fair Next Week

 

The Knoxville Area Urban League (KAUL)

  1. Alliance House Partners with UT on Healthy Living

 

The Alliance House Community of Knoxville is partnering with the University of Tennessee and the Knox County Public Library to hold a “healthy eating” expo from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at Burlington Branch Library, 4614 Asheville Hwy.

 

This will be an interactive expo where the focus will be to “Eat, Live, and Dine Healthy.”

 

The UT College of Pharmacy will operate an “Ask a Pharmacist” booth. The UT Medical Center‘s Healthy Living Kitchen will offer free cooking demonstrations and provide free, quick and healthy recipe ideas. Finally, the UT College of Nursing will give free health screenings such as blood pressure checks.
