ABOUT THE OFFICE OF NEIGHBORHOODS
|Just over 700 people participated in the 2017 Neighborhood Conference, and the Office of Neighborhoods wishes to thank everyone who attended, networked, hosted an information booth, led a workshop, volunteered, and otherwise played a role to make it a great success.
The Office of Neighborhoods works with established neighborhood groups and with new or emerging organizations to help strengthen and improve Knoxville’s neighborhoods.
Resident-led, resident-controlled neighborhood organizations that lie within city limits can be included in the Directory of Neighborhood Organizations. Call David Massey at 215-3232 for details.
Our mission is to improve communication and foster accountability between and among neighborhoods and city departments; ensure timely and well-coordinated inter-departmental responses to neighborhood needs; and collaborate with neighborhoods to identify, understand and address issues of shared concern.
We help neighborhoods engage in citizen-led improvement initiatives based on assets and needs identified by the residents in each neighborhood. And we provide neighborhood groups with leadership training and other organizing tools to be more effective builders of livable communities.
If you have a suggestion for the Office of Neighborhoods or for this Website, please contact us.
