Public invited to learn about “retrofitting suburbia” to create healthier, vibrant places


Public invited to learn about “retrofitting suburbia” to create healthier, vibrant places

Presentation part of walkability speaker series

 Knoxville, Tenn. — The public is invited to attend one of two free presentations by Ellen Dunham-Jones, a leading authority on sustainable suburban redevelopment. Her presentation “Retrofitting Suburbia for 21st Century Challenges” explores how the design of where we live affects public health, economic vitality and sustainability; and will take place on two evenings in April:

  • Tuesday, April 4 at 6 p.m., doors open at 5:30 p.m., at the Farragut Town Hall Community Room, 11408 Municipal Center Drive, and
  • Wednesday, April 5 at 6 p.m., doors open at 5:30 p.m., at the University of Tennessee Art and Architecture Auditorium, 1715 Volunteer Boulevard. Parking is available after 5 p.m. in staff lot 23.

 

“Ellen presents insightful, applicable examples on how our suburbs can be transformed into places that help people be more physically active while supporting economic vitality,” said Knox County Health Department (KCHD) Director Dr. Martha Buchanan. “Her visit is an excellent opportunity for developers, elected officials and residents to learn about what communities around the country are doing to create healthy, engaging places while activating the most powerful assets in their neighborhoods.”

The event is free, but the public is asked to register by calling 865-215-5170 or by visiting http://tinyurl.com/WSSPublic-RetrofittingSuburbia.

An award-winning architect, Dunham-Jones is a professor of architecture at the Georgia Institute of Technology where she coordinates the Master of Science program in Urban Design. She has served in several national leadership roles including Board Chair of the Congress for the New Urbanism, AIA Design and Health Leadership Group, and the Hanley Wood Sustainability Council. She is the co-author of “Retrofitting Suburbia: Urban Design Solutions for Redesigning Suburbs.” She received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in architecture from Princeton University. Her research intersects trends in contemporary theory, health and real estate development, and has been featured in the New York Times as well as on TED, PBS and NPR.

 Dunham-Jones’ presentation is part of a speaker series coordinated by KCHD, Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, Knoxville Area Association of Realtors and East Tennessee Quality Growth, and is funded by the Tennessee Department of Health. The series focuses on how the built environment impacts population health and economic vitality.

 

Built environment factors that contribute to poor health was an area of concern in KCHD’s 2014-2015 Community Health Assessment. It’s well documented that the built environment influences public health, especially in relation to chronic disease – the burden of which can be reduced through an active lifestyle and proper nutrition. However, many urban and suburban environments are not well designed to facilitate healthy behaviors or create the conditions for good health.

As the first health department in Tennessee to achieve national accreditation by the Public Health Accreditation Board, KCHD’s mission is to encourage, promote and assure the development of an active, healthy community through innovative public health practices.

PUBLIC NOTICE:  Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization – Draft Regional Mobility Plan, Knoxville Regional Air Quality Conformity Report, and Amended FY2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program Available for Public Comment

 

 

The Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) Executive Board, responsible for comprehensive transportation planning in the Knoxville Urban Area including Knox County and parts of Anderson, Blount, Loudon, Roane, and Sevier Counties, is required to update its long range transportation plan, Mobility Plan 2040, every four years.

 

The Mobility Plan 2040 and amended FY2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) are linked in guiding transportation investments in our Region. The Mobility Plan 2040 lays out a vision of what the transportation system will look like in the future. It includes federally funded and regionally significant transportation projects that will be scheduled over the next 20+ years. Projects that will be funded, designed, and built over the next four years are identified in the TIP. The purpose of the TIP amendment is to ensure the TIP is consistent with the near-term Mobility Plan 2040 projects.

 

An Air Quality Conformity Determination report was prepared to demonstrate that the implementation of projects within both the Mobility Plan 2040 and FY2017-2020 TIP will conform with the requirements of the Clean Air Act. This ensures that federal funds will not be spent on projects that cause or contribute to any new violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS); increase the frequency or severity of NAAQS violations; or delay timely attainments of the NAAQS or any required interim milestone.

 

The TPO is offering several ways to review both plans and provide comment. The draft Mobility Plan 2040 can be viewed and downloaded at www.knoxmobility.org.  Comments can be submitted to Amy Brooks via email at amy.brooks@knoxtrans.org or by phone at 865-215-4001. The draft amended TIP can be viewed and downloaded at www.knoxtrans.org/tip. Comments can be submitted to Elizabeth Watkins via email at elizabeth.watkins@knoxtrans.org or by phone at 865-215-3825. The draft Air Quality Conformity Report can be viewed and downloaded at www.knoxmobility.org.   Comments can be submitted to Mike Conger via email at mike.conger@knoxtrans.org or by phone at 865-215-3813. These plans and report are available for public comment though April 26, 2017.

 

Copies of the draft plans are also available for review at the TPO office (400 Main St., Suite 403 Knoxville, TN). The draft plans will be discussed at the April 11, 2017 Technical Committee meeting at 9:00am in the Small Assembly Room of the City County Building (400 Main Street, Knoxville, TN) and adopted at the April 26, 2017 Executive Board meeting at 9:00am also in the Small Assembly Room.
