I swear, there's a “national” day, or week, or month for everything. Regardless, the city of Knoxville is celebrating National Community Development Week, which runs from April 9-14, according to the latest spin job by a communications department that still costs more than the county's, but nowhere close to the school system's. Heh.
Anyhoo, the city has a bunch of stuff planned, ranging from a ribbon-cutting, some action plan thing, a bus tour and whatever.
You can click right smack here for all the goodness.
“The community development department does vital work to ensure our neighborhoods are strong and livable,” Mayor Madeline Rogero said in a statement that she no doubt never really said but was crafted by her spin team (but she still means it). “I am proud to celebrate National Community Development Week and raise awareness of the department's ongoing work.”
On a side note, if next week is CD week and we work thought the alphabet, then VD week should be sometime this fall.
