Public Meeting Oct. 17 on Ft. Dickerson Park & Quarry Improvements

Posted: 10/10/2016
Mayor Madeline Rogero, City Council members, City Parks and Recreation Department staff, and representatives of Legacy Parks Foundation, Aslan Foundation and Sanders Pace Architecture with PORT Urbanism will hold a public meeting Oct. 17 at 5:30 p.m. at the Kern's Bakery Building (2110 Chapman Hwy.) on Fort Dickerson Park and quarry lake improvements.

The City of Knoxville, Legacy Parks Foundation, Aslan Foundation and Sanders Pace Architecture with PORT Urbanism will host a public meeting to seek input for Phase 1 of a Fort Dickerson project that will include quarry lake access improvements.

Input from this meeting will help officials determine future recreation programming to offer at the quarry lake, which will impact how the City proceeds with creating access to the quarry. Funding totaling $160,000 has been slated for Phase 1 of the project.

City officials also will provide a progress update on the Fort Dickerson Gateway Park project for the park’s Chapman Highway entrance.

The public meeting will take place in the historic Kern’s Bakery Building on Chapman Highway. The building produced bread from 1931 to 2012 and is now nearing completion of a renovation led by a group of private developers.

Anyone needing a disability accommodation to attend the public meeting should contact the City’s ADA Coordinator, Stephanie Cook, at scook@knoxvilletn.gov or 865-215-2034. For an English interpreter, contact the City Law Department at 865-215-2050.
