Public Meeting on Proposed Updates to the City's Form Based Code
The public is invited to a May 7 public meeting at 5:30 p.m. in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building to discuss updates to the general provisions of the Form Based Code, Article 4, Section 4.0 of the City of Knoxville's Zoning Ordinance. The existing code - which shapes urban forms of development on the South Knoxville Waterfront and in the Cumberland Avenue Corridor - addresses new construction. The proposed changes will provide a clear pathway for property owners to modify, renovate or add onto their existing structures.

Cumberland Avenue Businesses Remain Accessible; Website Highlights Merchants, Restaurants
CumberlandConnect.comAs the second week of utility work continues on the Cumberland Avenue reconstruction project, a majority of cut-through commuters appear to be using the recommended detour routes, and traffic is moving well on those alternate routes. Traffic flow is slower through the section of Cumberland Avenue between 22nd Street and West Volunteer Boulevard, where two lanes are closed. But with fewer vehicles, restaurants and merchants fronting on Cumberland remain accessible.
