We need your input on priorities for the projects that have been identified as part of the Chapman Highway Implementation Plan.
The projects are intended to address problems and needs we heard from the input we received at our first public workshop and survey last fall as well as from analyzing updated data for information such as traffic counts, crashes and speeds on Chapman Highway. This survey contains the same projects that were presented at the April 16th Community Workshop and will allow us to obtain input from those who were unable to attend in-person.
Savannah Robertson joined Knoxville-Knox County Planning as the Smart Trips Program Coordinator in February. She is already busy handing day-to-day operations, attending events throughout the area, supporting employers and implementing new programs. Help us welcome her!
