this recommendation seems reasonable.

I have concerns about this proposed rezone. For what is proposed, there appears to be a serious lack of adequate infrastructure to support this proposed rezoning. As a frequent traveler on this road, it is obvious that the road is dangerous enough the way it is with the existing traffic that supports the current residences. A large increase in traffic on this tiny, windy road presents a lot of potential issues. Other issues such as sewer and water seem to be major obstacles. How would this be handled? Who pays the bill to bring these necessary services? Given the terrain of the proposed property, this seems like a huge, expensive project. What kind of impact will this have on the current landowners and neighbors in this area? Please deny this request for rezoning. It is hard to imagine how this property could support such a large undertaking. The infrastructure is not equipped to handle a large subdivision like the one proposed on this property.

We're dealing with 75 years of urban sprawl planning that no longer serves the needs of this city. In the midst of a terrible housing crisis that seems like he just keeps getting worse and worse and more and more expensive it's time to rethink how we use our small lots in the CN zoned property. With this revision as I understand it it would allow townhomes and condos and other medium density housing options to be built. This seems like a reasonable revision in the current zoning laws to address our crisis state of housing in Knoxville.

This is a horrible idea that completely ignores the needs and desires of property owners that have lived in the neighborhood for decades and paid an untold amount of property taxes to Knox Co. Simply listening to the constituents whose lives would be negatively impacted and not the minority of businessmen who would profit would make this an easy decision.
