Recommend denial of amendments as proposed to the City of Knoxville Zoning Code, Article 5.

As permitting for residential uses in the C-N zone occurs within Plans Review and Inspections, Planning staff do not evaluate residential development in this zone and further analysis would be needed from both departments.

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.
