town view: EngineeringWhen the Town of Farragut was incorporated in 1980, two of the main reasons cited for incorporation were the desire to control our own destiny and to support local projects that were in the best interest of our community. In large part, the Town was and continues to be focused on developing its roadway and pedestrian infrastructure through our planning and development efforts.
