Recode Knoxville was a holistic rewriting of the Knoxville city zoning codes. It went through a multi-year process with many various rounds of public input. The ETCDC worked in conjunction with Knoxville - Knox County Planning and AIA East Tennessee to host a design charrette with local architects and developers in order to study the impact the new codes would have on six distinct sites spread throughout the city.

Powell Blueway/Greenway Master Plan - Community Center Site 13


Sheryl Ely, Director of the City of Knoxville Parks and Recreation Department, requested the ETCDC to develop a master plan for Sharps Ridge Veterans Memorial Park, which would include expanding the 115 acre park by a 42 acre parcel acquired by Legacy Parks Foundation. To develop a comprehensive plan, the ETCDC facilitated a programming meeting with stakeholders which included: the Veterans Heritage Site Foundation Committee (VHSFC), Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC), the Public Building Authority (PBA), the City of Knoxville Accessibility Coordinator, the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC), and representatives from the local birding group. With all of the input gathered, ETCDC design staff and volunteer advisor Chris Hall, landscape designer with IBI Placemaking, developed a master plan considering the wants and needs of all the stakeholder organizations.

Sharps Ridge Veterans Memorial Park 17


The East Tennessee Development District and residents of Caryville, Tennessee approached the ETCDC with the desire to create a small park complex at the edge of their downtown main street, directly off of the Interstate 75 exit. The master plan creates spaces for new sidewalks, a widened road with parrallel parking, a stmaped intersection at the park entrance, small and large area fenced-in dog parks, a playground, multiple covered pavilions, a hillside amphitheatre with a concrete pad at the top for an annual Christmas tree display, and space for future sports courts and splash pads.

The Facade Enhancement Grant Program, a forgivable five year loan with a maximum of $50,000, is funded by the City of Knoxville Community Development Department. This program encourages business owners in the former empowerment zones to improve the faces of their businesses that front major streets. When the program began in 2006, local business owners were confused by the process and were not participating. The ETCDC was asked to develop possible design alternatives for these businesses to help promote the program. To date, the Design Center has created over 92 concept plans for local business owners; many of these have been further developed by local architects and constructed.
