Design Team 4 developing their Vision Plan

The Alcoa Highway Beautification Council hosted a Community Design Charrette, which was facilitated by the East Tennessee Community Design Center, on Friday, July 26, 2019 at the North Campus of Sevier Heights Baptist Church. It was from 1 PM to 5 PM. The goal was to create a vision for the future of the commercial corridor along Alcoa Highway from Maloney Road to Montlake Drive.

Following the Design Charrette at 5 PM on July 26, 2019 at the North Campus of Sevier Heights Baptist Church, community members listened to a presentation and provided input on the design concepts.

Thanks to all who attended and provided valuable input!

CRJA Rendering of Phase 1 Alcoa Hwy – Expansion looking South

This work is a logical and necessary follow-up to the creation of the Alcoa Highway Landscape Plan, which is intended to provide (1) an attractive entrance corridor to Knoxville from the Airport and points south, (2) an effective enhancement of the major physical reconstruction by TDOT required to make the high volume regional artery safer to drive, and (3) a catalyst that will attract new business investment to support a functional, revitalized commercial center for the surrounding neighborhoods, commuters that rely on the route for safe travel, and visitors to the UT Medical Center, Research Park, and UT Ag Institute. Appropriate signage and landscaping will be strongly encouraged in the corridor.

Thanks to all those who responded to the survey!
