~ from the City Office of Neighborhoods


The Neighborhood Advisory Council (NAC) meets on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 4:30 p.m. at the Cansler YMCA, 616 Jessamine St., to continue the discussion of Affordable Housing.


Last month, the NAC was briefed on the topic: Affordable Housing Crisis in Knoxville – What is the city doing?  NAC members, audience members, and staff all voiced that the information was informative and wanted more discussion.


NAC will be continuing the conversation.  At the next session there will be more discussion about how Neighborhood Groups can provide input for future development in neighborhoods.


All are welcome to attend.  The procedure for this meeting will be: first, the council asks questions and/or makes comments, and then the floor will be open to the audience.


During the NAC meeting, the Office of Neighborhoods will inform the group about an upcoming survey, which will request feedback about the Office of Neighborhoods’ programs.  Which programs are working; which ones are not; and which ones can be improved?  The input will help the Office of Neighborhoods grow in the future.


The NAC meets monthly and is appointed by the Mayor to serve three-year terms. The group provides feedback about neighborhood issues to the City’s administration and also shares updates with their neighborhood organizations. to their neighborhoods.
