The City of Knoxville is reviewing comments on the draft plan for a new Neighborhood Traffic Safety Program (NTSP), which is expected to launch this summer. See the NTSP Web Page for more information. 


 The Office of Neighborhoods -- operating within the Community Development Department -- works with established neighborhood groups and with new or emerging organizations to help strengthen and improve Knoxville’s neighborhoods. 

Groups whose neighborhoods lie partly or wholly within city limits can register your organization here.

Our mission is to improve communication and foster accountability between and among neighborhoods and city departments; ensure timely and well-coordinated inter-departmental responses to neighborhood needs; and collaborate with neighborhoods to identify, understand and address issues of shared concern. 

We help neighborhoods engage in citizen-led improvement initiatives based on assets and needs identified by the residents in each neighborhood. And we provide neighborhood groups with leadership training and other organizing tools to be more effective builders of livable communities. 

If you have a suggestion for the Office of Neighborhoods or for this Website, please contact us.
