This conference is a project of the City of Knoxville's Office of Neighborhoods and is planned in cooperation with the Neighborhood Advisory Council, a program committee that includes representatives of more than a dozen neighborhoods across the City, and many volunteers. Over 700 people participated in the 2015 conference, and we expect that many again this year.
