The Community Collaborative This year, we are excited to start The Community Collaborative with our partners Knox Heritage, Keep Knoxville Beautiful, The University of Tennessee Knoxville College of Architecture and Design, and The East Tennessee Chapter of The American Institute of Architects. The Community Collaborative is a yearly study composed from a collective effort between multiple organizations to bring awareness to the potential of our community. Each year a focus area or issue is established, community input is gathered, and multiple studies and efforts are performed. The collaborative ends in a public event and publication that summarizes all the research, designs, concepts, and efforts performed that year. This discourse, in turn, begins to inform public policy and private development strategies. The Collaborative is the vehicle for our community to envision the possibilities of our region and shape our collective aspirations for the future.

The Burlington Enhancement Plan is driven by ideas that were generated from gathering community input. With project advisors Ric Mixon, AIA and Dr. Dasha Lundy, the ETCDC design team developed a site plan focused on the area along Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and Holston Drive from Kirkwood Street to the former Amvets, including Cal Johnson’s Speedway Circle.

The Burlington Enhancement Plan B


Public plaza with pavilion and landscaping

Add a covered bus stop Improve intersections with clearly defined crosswalks and stamped asphalt Remove a section of MLK Jr to improve safety at Holston Drive Intersection

Public plaza with integrated benches and landscaping Enhance existing Flea Market Site with buildings for covered stalls, defined parking, landscaping, and pedestrian plaza Enhance existing vacant building site by developing a plaza area where a new mural is located Enhance streetscape - add street trees and bulb outs, widen sidewalks, add pedestrian lights, new street lights, street amenities such as benches, planters and garbage cans Speedway Circle enhance with 5' width of stamped asphalt

Project Goal To help community members, business owners, potential developers, and government officials visualize a path for revitalization and economic development for this once vibrant downtown. At the public meetings, the ETCDC asked community members to visit five stations to help gather their input on what can be done to make downtown Burlington a more desirable destination. The community members also filled out a Visual Preference Survey, which is used to help express and define preferences for architectural style, signage, building setbacks, landscaping, parking areas, and other design elements. The Burlington Enhancement Plan is a culmination of all this input. The enthusiasm that the ETCDC has received through every step of this process has been aweinspiring. It is clear that the Burlington community is ready for change, and our hope is that the Burlington Enhancement Plan, along with the other exciting efforts that are underway, can be the spark for that change.

Design as a Public Conversation

Research: Best Practices

Design Agenda

Designers can play a critical role in helping to envision change. Public input sessions and exhibits of the design work in progress can help the public to better understand the potential of Recode. Conversely, the studio design process may reveal important revisions for the Recode final draft. The Davis Studio explored the potential of Recode Knoxville, with a proposal for a walkable neighborhood center at two existing commercial centers along Magnolia Avenue in the East Knoxville area.

The studio researched policy and precedents in order to identify best practices, looking at examples from across the country. Themes for research include: • Innovative Community Development • Innovative Housing Concepts • Challenges of Gentrification • Affordable Housing Strategies • Urban Art • Community History • Site Analysis

The Davis studio design proposals are an important form of “applied research” which also sparks further community understanding and discussion about future changes. Following the general prescripts of Recode Knoxville, the studio designs are in three parts: • The West: Chilhowee Park • The Downtown with short term (2025) plans and long term plans (2040) • The East

The Burlington X Anastasiya Skvarniuk, Klara Apriasz, and Kseniya Sabko This group was inspired by the vision plan that the East Tennessee Community Design Center developed in meetings with the Burlington Residents Association and others. Residents expressed interest in simple improvements to public spaces within Downtown Burlington. The Burlington X aims to create few, but important, spaces with shops, cafes and public functions in heavily trafficked areas. The analysis for the area identified a need for a clear pedestrian zone in the center of the Downtown: the “Burlington X.� The design separates throughtraffic from a large pedestrian walkway along a currently underutilized road. The project also illustrates a way to connect to Magnolia Avenue with a future bus stop for the Downtown. 24 Burlington Recode

AIA Design Slam! Knoxville by Design

Design SLAM! Knoxville is a fast-paced, live competition focused on design thinking, urban design, and presentation. Each year, the event pits teams of Knoxville area designers against one another to solve a local design challenge. This year, the competition focused on an area of intervention and redevelopment in conjunction with The Community Collaborative. Teams consisting of makers, architectural designers, and allied professionals were given an hour and-a-half to develop and present a solution to the audience and a panel of judges. The People’s Choice—selected by popular vote during the event—and an overall winner were presented with custom fabricated trophies.
