Knoxville City Council will vote tomorrow night on an amendment to the Veteran's Cemetery land swap deal that would provide for development of permanent supportive housing for the homeless at the Lakeshore property.
Amendment 16 from the resolution:
The City agrees to use the park area for public recreational purposes as a public park and may use up to five acres of the Property for other public purposes, including permanent supportive housing, provided, the five (5) acres may not be used for purposes which generate significant noise or sound and the City agrees to provide reasonable security for said use.
Readers may recall that Council members Joe Bailey and Marilyn Roddy both supported a South Knoxville homeless housing development at Flenniken School last year, and said they would welcome such a development in Sequoyah Hills where they live. Looks like they could get their wish.
