If you know you have questions now, you can email them to dsharp@knoxvilletn.gov by noon on Wednesday, May 13, and we will try to cover these during the presentation.  After the presentation, the NAC members will have a chance to ask questions.  If there is time left, we will open the floor up for attendees to ask questions.

Consisting of neighborhood leaders from around the city, the Neighborhood Advisory Council serves in an advisory and partnership capacity to:

1) Give advice and feedback on the programs and policies of the Office of Neighborhoods,
2) Bring neighborhood issues and concerns to the attention of the Mayor and City Administration,
3) Propose to the Administration responses and solutions to address these concerns; and
4) Serve as a sounding board for city initiatives and proposals affecting neighborhoods. 

The NAC advises and provides input only to the Mayor and the City Administration. As a matter of policy, it does not advise Knoxville City Council, the Metropolitan Planning Commission, and other elected and appointed bodies.

The City's Office of Neighborhoods provides staff support to the NAC.


Members are appointed by the Mayor of Knoxville. There are two designated seats for each City Council District as well as three at-large positions. Members serve three year terms, limited to two consecutive terms, then one year break. If you wish to apply for an appointment to the Neighborhood Advisory Council, or if you wish to recommend someone for a seat, click here to find out more about the process. 


The Neighborhood Advisory Council usually meets each month except July and December. Meetings are held at 4:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month in the community meeting room at the Cansler Family YMCA, 616 Jessamine Street. If you plan to attend, call the Office of Neighborhoods at 865-215-3232 to make sure the meeting will be held as scheduled.
