Published by the City of Knoxville’s Office of Neighborhoods to report news important to Knoxville’s residential neighborhoods.

 

1.  Old North Elects New Officers, Board Members

 

Old North Knoxville has elected new officers and board members.

 

Andie Ray is ONK’s new president, replacing Lauren Rider, who has been in the post for several years. Andrew Ray (no relation to Andie) was elected vice president, succeeding Beth Booker. Joy Guilford was named treasurer, following in the footsteps of Rhonda Parker. Allison Rosenberg continues as secretary.

 

Board elections were held last fall, and the new board now includes Jonathan Ball, Beth Booker, Pete Creel, Kim Davis, Jeremy Jennings, Joy Guilford, Allison Rosenberg, Sean Bolen, Laurence Eaton, Lauren Rider, Rebecca McCurdy, Andie Ray, Andrew Ray, Dodi Payne, Marcus Phelps, James Pierce, Rebecca Ridner, and Donna Spencer, along with Board Member Emeritus Chester Kilgore.

 

The ONK neighborhood is located a) within the triangle formed by North Broadway, North Central, and East Woodland, and b) in the area bounded by Hall of Fame, North Broadway, First Creek, and East Glenwood.

 

 

2.  Send in Your Neighborhood News

 

Has your organization elected new officers or board members lately? Have you launched a new program or project? Set the dates for your regular meetings for this year?

 

If so, consider using this almost-weekly newsletter to spread the word about your organization. The Neighborhood Advisory is read not only by other neighborhood groups but also by members of City Council and other elected officials, Metropolitan Planning Commission and other appointed bodies, and city staff, among many others. It is a great way to raise your profile to a targeted audience that knows about, cares about and follows neighborhood issues and activities.

 

You can submit your news by contacting David Massey at dmassey@cityofknoxville.org or 215-3232.

 

 

3.  Fire Department, Red Cross Join Together for Smoke Alarm Service

 

The Knoxville Fire Department (KFD) and the American Red Cross of Tennessee Mountain Valley (ARC) are teaming up for a targeted approach to preventing household fires.

 

The two organizations will be distributing and installing smoke alarms in three strategic neighborhoods this Saturday (tomorrow). ARC and KFD chose Burlington, Lonsdale and Oakwood-Lincoln Park neighborhoods for this program due to their higher-than-average incident rates for household fires.

 

Starting at 11 a.m. this Saturday, January 25, ARC volunteers and KFD will go door to door in the three neighborhoods until 3 p.m. Residents can have their existing smoke alarms tested or receive new alarms. The service is free of charge to home residents.

 

Benjamin Prijatel, regional communications director for ARC, remarked that 90 percent of the disasters that ARC responds to are household fires. Every dollar that is spent on fire prevention saves four dollars on the back end and countless lives.

 

If you live within one of the three aforementioned neighborhoods and would like to be sure the KFD/ARC team visits you on Saturday, contact KFD Captain Paul Trumpore at 321-1166.

 

Any city resident can request free smoke detector servicing or replacement by calling KFD’s Fire Prevention Bureau at 595-4672.

 

 

4.  One Week to Go:  Nominate the Good Neighbor of the Year

 

The Office of Neighborhoods and the Neighborhood Advisory Council are accepting nominations for the Diana Conn Good Neighbor of the Year Award.

 

The award is presented annually to a Knoxville resident who — in a spirit of cooperation and with commitment to inclusive community — has devoted time and talent in service to his or her neighbors and neighborhood.  Named after the late Diana Conn, the award is meant to honor someone who makes a positive contribution at the neighborhood level without seeking recognition for their service.

 

Nominations are now open and will be accepted through Friday, January 31, 2014.  The nominee must be a resident of the City of Knoxville and must have made a contribution to their community during calendar year 2013, although their service may have begun long before.

 

The Mayor’s Neighborhood Advisory Council will choose the winner from the pool of nominees.  The winner will be honored during the Neighborhood Networking Luncheon to be held Saturday, March 8, 2014, at the Knoxville Convention Center.

 

To learn more, and to obtain a copy of the nomination form, visit this web page:

Call Natalie Crone at 215-3456 to have a hard copy of the nomination form mailed to you.

 

 

5.  Consider Serving on the Neighborhood Advisory Council

 

Applications are due Friday, February 7, for those interested in serving on Mayor Rogero’s Neighborhood Advisory Council.

 

Appointed by the Mayor, the NAC provides insight and advice to the city administration on a wide variety of neighborhood-related issues. NAC is composed of two neighborhood leaders from each of the six City Council districts and at least three at-large members. Under current NAC procedures, each member serves one full 3-year term.

 

NAC meets from 4:30-6:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month at CAC’s L.T. Ross Building, 2247 Western Avenue.

 

Six NAC seats are up for appointment. The seats, areas covered and current occupants are:

Seat 1-A (South Knoxville and Fort Sanders) – Cathy Irwin

Seat 2-A (West Knoxville) – vacant (had been occupied by the late Suzanne Kurth)

Seat 3-B (Northwest Knoxville) – Mae Moody

Seat 6-B (Parts of East, West and Northwest Knoxville) – Rick Roach

At Large Seat A – vacant (had been occupied by Bobby Braly, who moved out of state)

At Large Seat B – Barbara Pelot

 

Appointees to the district seats must live in that particular City Council district, whereas appointees for at-large seats can live anywhere in the city.

 

To be considered for one of these positions, interested persons are asked to fill out an application form, which is available online:

www.cityofknoxville.org/development/neighborhoods/AdvisoryCouncilApplication.pdf.

 

Visit http://www.cityofknoxville.org/development/neighborhoods/advisory.asp to learn more about the NAC, the duties of an NAC member, and details about the appointment process.

 

To obtain a hard copy of the application form, call David Massey, neighborhood coordinator, at 215-3232.

 

 

6.  Know Your Government — and Learn how to Run for Elected Office

 

The League of Women Voters of Knoxville and Knox County is now accepting applications for its Citizens Academy.

 

The annual program is designed to engage, educate and bring together Knoxville and Knox County citizens who want to make positive changes in their community with experienced government and non-governmental leaders.

 

This year’s academy will focus on the process involved with pursuing an elected office, teaching the participants the basics of running for office. The information presented will focus primarily on state and local positions.

 

The League is seeking about 30 participants for the Academy. Sessions will take place on three Saturdays —February 15 from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. February 22 from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and March 8 from 2 p.m.-5 p.m. with a reception to follow. There is no charge for the class.   Participants should plan to attend all three sessions.

 

The Citizens Academy application can be found at www.lwvknoxville.org. Click on “Citizens Academy” in the left-hand navigation column. Contact Rynn Dupes at 803-8763 for more  information or to have a hard copy of the application mailed to you.

 

Return completed applications by email to League@lwvknoxville.org or by mail to League of Women Voters of Knoxville/Knox County, P.O. Box 31825, Knoxville, TN 37930.

 

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government.

 

 

7.  Community Development Seeks Action on Blighted Properties

 

The city’s Better Building Board (BBB) next week will consider action on two properties that ultimately could be acquired by the city at fair market value using its eminent domain powers, if the owners fail to address codes violations.

 

Also, the BBB will hear an appeal of a 60-day repair or demolition order issued by the Public Officer last December to the owners of and/or parties with an interest in 438 Hiawassee Avenue. The property has accumulated over $6,000 in back city and county taxes and three lot liens totaling $1,000. Apparently, the owners failed to act on a June 2013 repair-only order on the burned-out structure.

 

Affected neighborhood groups may wish to be present to testify on the impact of these properties on the neighborhood. The BBB meets at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, January 30, in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building.

 

The properties targeted by Community Development include a vacant lot on Cansler Avenue (Parcel ID 094F-N-031) and a blighted structure at 434 East Quincy Avenue.

 

The BBB — composed of five citizens appointed by the Mayor — will be asked by the Community Development Department to either “determine” or “certify” that the properties are blighted based on criteria spelled out in a city ordinance. These are the first steps toward the city possibly acquiring the properties at fair market value, if the owner fails to take steps to cure the blight.

 

See http://www.cityofknoxville.org/plansreview/agenda_bbb.pdf for a full copy of the January BBB agenda, with details and owner information on each property.

 

Blighted properties acquired by the city are put up for sale through Community Development’s Homemaker’s Program. For more on this program, see:

http://www.cityofknoxville.org/development/homemaker/.

 

 

8.  Neighborhoods Can Testify on Blighted Properties

 

Twenty properties are on the agenda for the City’s next Public Officer Hearing at 9:30 a.m. Friday, January 31.

 

The Public Officer — David Brace, director of the Public Service Department — will hear testimony on buildings that inspectors contend are in violation of the city’s building codes. Testimony can also be made by the property owners, neighbors, neighborhood groups, and other stakeholders, such as lien holders.

 

The Public Officer then decides whether to issue an order requiring that the violations be addressed in a certain period of time. Failure by the owner to cure the problem may result in the boarding or demolition of a structure, or the cleanup of a dirty or overgrown lot, with costs billed to the owner. A property owner may appeal the Public Officer’s decision to the Better Building Board and, ultimately, to Chancery Court.

The properties that have been approved to be heard for repair/demolition orders are: 1365 Armstrong Avenue (Accessory structure only), 1220 West Baxter Avenue, 1351 Bertie Rand Street, 714 N. Broadway, 718 N. Broadway, 1104 Buena Road, 6124 Cougar Drive (pool only), 1024 Crozier Avenue (including accessory structure),4213 Drifting Dr. (including accessory structure), 3310 Forestdale Avenue (garage only), 621 Hiawassee Avenue (including accessory structure), 3617 Montgomery Avenue, 3003 Pine Lane (pool only), 2312 Sam Houston Street, 3736 Skyline Drive, and 1007 Tennessee Avenue.

 

The properties that have already been given emergency repair/demolition orders and are now to be confirmed are: 927 Knoxville College Drive (Brandon Hall), 2805 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., and 1523 Reynolds Street a/k/a 901 Knoxville College Drive.

 

BBB will also be asked to approve the emergency boarding of 3310 Forestdale Avenue.

 

If any of these properties are in your neighborhood, you might wish to consider sending a representative of your organization to the meeting to submit testimony about the impact of the property on the neighborhood.

 

The full January 31 agenda, with details on each property, can be found at www.cityofknoxville.org/plansreview/agenda_poh.pdf by close of business today.

 

 

9.  KCDC to Present Five Points Master Plan for Walter P. Taylor Area

 

Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC) will present the Five Points Master Plan for the redevelopment of the footprint of Walter P. Taylor Homes and Dr. Lee L. Williams Senior Complex at the Walter P. Taylor Boys and Girls Club on Monday, January 27, 2014 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

KCDC’s Master Planning team led by Johnson Architecture has held two previous public workshops to gather resident and stakeholder input on the project. This input has been incorporated into the Master Plan and includes proposals for different types of housing and new infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks and green spaces for the community.

“KCDC and our Master Planning team have been meeting with community members and working on this Master Plan process for months,” KCDC President and CEO Alvin Nance said. “We cannot succeed without the full cooperation of those who live and work in Five Points, and we are very excited to be able to unveil our plan to the public to hear their feedback and gain their support.”

The Master Planning Team consists of Johnson Architecture, Urban Collage, The Communities Group, Vision Engineering and Development Services, Carol R. Johnson Associates and the Real Property Research Group.

The Master Plan will outline a phased redevelopment strategy, and KCDC will discuss the next steps to accomplish the objectives. The total cost of the Five Points revitalization will be approximately $85 million and is estimated to take place over 10-12 years. KCDC is already nearly three years into the process, and KCDC and its owner’s representative, Partners Development, have already completed several major construction projects in Five Points.

Beginning in August of 2012, 86 units of Walter P. Taylor Homes and 97 units of Dr. Lee L. Williams Senior Complex were demolished as part of a first phase to replace older public housing in Five Points with new units.

In total, 122 units of senior and family-style housing have been constructed to replace the demolished units. Residents displaced by the demolition of units at Walter P. Taylor Homes have received priority placement in a new unit in Five Points, priority placement at another KCDC property or a Section 8 voucher.

After the meeting, the Five Points Master Plan will be posted with summary reports from the two previous public meetings on KCDC’s website (www.kcdc.org) under the “Five Points Revitalization” icon.

Since 1936, KCDC has been dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of Knoxville and Knox County. KCDC’s mission is to improve and transform neighborhoods and communities by providing quality affordable housing, advancing development initiatives and fostering self-sufficiency. For more information, call 865-403-1100or visit http://www.kcdc.org.
