Chapman Highway Community Workshop Scheduled Sep. 5, 2018

Posted: 08/24/2018
Chapman Hwy. MeetingThe Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) and City of Knoxville will hold a community workshop for the Chapman Highway Implementation Plan on September 5, 2018. The workshop will be held from 5:30-7:00 pm in the library of South Doyle Middle School, 3900 Decatur Drive. 

The workshop will be an informal open house. No presentation will be given, but information will be on display at multiple stations in the library. Community members are encouraged to stop by at their convenience to share ideas about how to make Chapman Highway a better place to walk, drive, bike or use public transit. Staff from MPC and other project leaders will be available to talk one-on-one with attendees and to answer questions. 

The Chapman Highway Implementation Plan is being led by MPC and the City of Knoxville with the help of consultants from Kimley-Horn and Associates. The study will identify and prioritize needed roadway improvements for the six-mile section of Chapman Highway within city limits that runs from Blount Avenue to just south of Governor John Sevier Highway. A stakeholder committee has formed and met, and community input is now being sought. 

Your input is important! Feedback received from this workshop will be used to develop a list of projects to be considered for implementation. A second workshop will be held later to gather input on specific projects determined from the initial feedback.
