Knox MPC plans Kingston Pike discussion


A brainstorming session concerning improvements along Kingston Pike will be held this Saturday at Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We’re going to develop two sector plans for west city and the southwest county,” said Jeff Archer, senior planner for the Knox County Metropolitan Planning Commission.

“We’ll be looking at improvements from Alcoa Highway all the way to the county line,” he added.

The public is invited to attend.


The session will begin with a welcoming presentation in the church’s Welcome Hall, then attendees will be sent to a “Break-Out Room,” Archer said.

Citizens will go into one of four “Break-Out” rooms, which will divided up by geography, and make recommendations about possible aesthetic and transportation improvements and redevelopment opportunities in their area.

“After an hour or two, they will present their ideas to the whole group,” Archer said.

The process will then recycle with new people.

“It’s not meant to be a meeting from ten to three. You can come in whenever you want,” Archer said.

Once all sector plan recommendations have been made they will be filtered and then go before the County Commission, he added.

Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church is at 9132 Kingston Pike.
