Knoxville South Waterfront Drop-In Center
The KnoxvilleSouthWaterfrontDrop-InCenter is a temporary information clearinghouse located at 906 Sevier Avenue, east from the Gay Street bridge, located across from the Pilot convenience store. The Center has been rented by the City of Knoxville through a generous arrangement with Mr. Bart Yancy and his mother, Jane Yancy. It will be operated during the schedule posted below from April 24th through the end of August 2006. Local volunteers and city staff members will be available to open the Center and assist visitors with South Waterfront planning materials and discuss current progress on the project.
The purpose of the Drop-In Center is to provide an accessible place within the South Waterfront where anyone can visit to view and discuss plans being made for the area. Also, the Center will be available to hold small community meetings related to the South Waterfront. The Knoxville South Waterfront Vision Plan describing what the South Waterfront should look like over the next 20 years is now available, and an Action Plan showing how implementation of the Vision Plan will be completed by June 2006.
If you visit the center, you will be able to view a large tabletop model showing what the South Waterfront could look like in 20 years, or you can see an animated video flyover of the area as shown in the Vision Plan. Other materials such as large plans, photographic simulations, and reports will all be available at the Drop-InCenter.
The Drop-InCenter will be open at times and days to accommodate everyone’s schedule. Please feel free to drop by and find out the latest information on the South Waterfront Project!.

City Council Approves Redevelopment Plan
The Knoxville City Council approved the resolution of authorizing Knoxville's Community Development Corporation (KCDC) to prepare the Knoxville South Waterfront Redevelopment and Urban Renewal Plan.
This plan contains a tax increment financing (TIF) provision, as well as provides for public notice and a public hearing prior to plan adoption. The Knoxville South Waterfront Vision Plan, adopted by City Council in April 2006, forms the basis for the plan, including the setting of boundaries for the TIF district.
The purpose of the plan is to support private property redevelopment through the funding and construction of public improvements, with the TIF being a major source of revenue for various projects and improvements around the city.
Public Hearing Notice Advertisements are scheduled for August 21 and 28, and public review of the Complete Redevelopment Plan is on August 25. For more information contact Dave Hill at 215-3764.

At tonights City Council meeting, City Council will consider a resolution authorizing Knoxville's Community Development Corporation (KCDC) to prepare the Knoxville South Waterfront Redevelopment and Urban Renewal Plan and conduct a public hearing relative to the proposed plan. We inadvertently stated that City Council has already passed this resolution when in fact they have not. We apologize for any inconvenience.
From what I can tell they are going to keep our old house and our old neighborhood intact. We sold our house on Mimosa 5 years ago because the neighborhood was turning into a bad area to live. It sure was cool to live so close to downtown, but we are very happy living on the West/Bearden area.
