The Neighborhood Advisory Council meets Wednesday, April 13, from 4:30-6 p.m. at the Cansler YMCA, 616 Jessamine St.

The topics for this month are: Invasive Plant Removal, the purpose and activity of the City’s Tree Board, and how nonprofit Trees Knoxville may be able to help with neighborhood tree plantings.

All are welcome to attend. As a matter of procedure, we allow NAC members to voice their input first. If there is time at the end, other attendees may be allowed to give input as well.

The NAC advises and provides input only to the Mayor and the City administration.  It does not advise Knoxville City Council, Knoxville-Knox County Planning and other elected and appointed bodies; however, they may speak on behalf of their neighborhoods or as individuals.

The City of Knoxville ensures meaningful access to City programs, services, and activities to comply with Civil Rights Title VI and ADA Title II laws and reasonably provides: translation, interpretation, modifications, accommodations, alternative formats, auxiliary aids and services.
