Knox County will host the second and final round of public meetings to show the final recommendations of a proposed major greenway corridor study that will touch each section of the county.
Earlier this year, county leaders sought recommendations from its residents during the first series of meetings.
The study has evaluated roughly 65 miles of proposed greenways within the county, some that may connect to other cities and counties.
County officials, landscape architects and engineers tied to the study will be on hand to answer questions. They also will have renderings of the proposed project.
Each meeting will take place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the following dates:
- Wednesday, September 11 in the Karns Elementary School gym
- Thursday, September 12 in the Northshore Elementary School gym
- Tuesday, September 17 in the Halls Elementary School gym
- Wednesday, September 18 in the Bonny Kate Elementary gym
The four corridors are:
- Beaver Creek, which will run east from Melton Hill Park in Hardin Valley to the Gibbs community.
- Northshore, which will run from the Loudon County line to Lakeshore Park.
- Chapman Highway, which will run north from the Sevier County line to Gary Underwood Park.
- John Sevier, which will run from Chapman Highway to Alcoa Highway and ultimately connect the Knox-Blount Greenway.
