The Urban Land Institute has given city leaders its final report, a 36-page study that focuses on the downtown core and provides a series of recommendations "for Knoxville to begin work on immediately to guarantee (its) ongoing and future success."
The report comes four
months after the non-profit's advisory panel spent a week in the city
investigating a number of key sites and conducting a series of
interviews with more than 100 stakeholders, including business owners,
nearby residents, developers and groups with key interests in the
downtown area like Knox Heritage.
The Washington, D.C.-based research center on land use provided input for
five locations: World's Fair Park, the Civic Auditorium and Coliseum,
the Supreme Court site, Henley Street, and the area where the McClung
warehouse buildings once stood.
The study, which cost $125,000, was conducted to provide city leaders on ways to continue growing the downtown.
