3) Meeting all requirements of the utility provider and/or the Knox County Health Department.
4) Meeting all applicable requirements of the Knox County Zoning Ordinance, including but not limited to the supplemental regulations for rural retreats, Section 4.104.
5) Any rural retreat use area, including parking areas, within the 200 ft setback to a property line or 300 ft to a residential structure is not to be approved with this application because setback waivers from adjacent property owners have not been signed and provided with this application.

Parking may be relocated outside of the 200 ft and 300 ft setbacks but must be in the same general area as shown on the plan.

Case History

This program aims to increase transit in disadvantaged communities and reduce the impact of climate change. Knoxville-Knox County Planning, in partnership with KAT and the city, will develop a Transit-based Opportunities Map to identify locations for development along key transit corridors that target attainable housing and employment opportunities. Transit-oriented development (TOD) prioritizes efficient, equitable, sustainable development. It also helps reduce poverty and further benefit communities by:

  • Encouraging greater transit use,
  • Reducing automobile use,
  • Maximizing existing infrastructure
  • Reducing emissions, and
  • Providing mixed and low-income housing options.
