Previously: Knoxville's application
Next American City takes a closer look at 3 of the 20 finalists. Knoxville is included.
Knoxville has 184 city-owned vacant lots costing the city $117,033 annually. It also ranks 17th in the nation for areas lacking food accessibility. Mayor Madeline Rogero and Susanna Sutherland, manager of the city’s Office of Sustainability, oversaw the city’s proposal for a comprehensive “urban food corridor,” which will address these issues and more. The proposal starts at the zoning and legislation level and ends at composting. If implemented, it would be the first comprehensive urban food system in the country.
Side note: It seems Santa Monica is finally addressing the "freeway sometimes makes a country girl blue" issue with an "ambitious approach for measuring and improving 'wellbeing' on a citywide basis"
