City Seeks Waterfront Proposals

Posted: 06/03/2005
The City of Knoxville today issued a request for qualifications and proposals to create a South Waterfront Vision and Action Plan that will set the framework for future development and investment in the area.

The City expects to select a firm in mid-September.

A feasibility study commissioned by the City and the East Tennessee Community Design Center recommended a master plan be developed that builds upon the Metropolitan Planning Commission's sector plan, neighborhood plans and current development activity and include extensive public involvement.

The South Waterfront Vision and Action Plan will address such issues as land uses and zoning; urban design guidelines; transportation; public access to the waterfront; and archeological surveys.

The request for qualifications and proposals is available on the City's website  and by calling the City's Purchasing Department at 865-215-2070.
