APRIL 16, 2014

On April 16, 2014, East Knoxville residents, City Council members, and business leaders shared ideas on the Magnolia Avenue Streetscapes Plan during a public forum at the John T. O'Connor Senior Center.

City staff presented schematic designs for the Magnolia Avenue Streetscapes Plan, based on recommendations outlined in the 2009 MPC Magnolia Avenue Corridor Plan.

One of three areas along the corridor (Jessamine St. to N. Bertrand St.) was recommended as a model block for detailed streetscape designs.
