If you’re concerned about how Ancient Lore Village and other zoning changes in south Knox County could damage the environment and destroy the peace and natural beauty of our area, here’s how you can help:

Please email our Planning Commission (MPC) members, Mayor Jacobs, and our county commissioners! They need to be aware of how much opposition there is to this project, and the only way that can happen is if they hear from us! Below is a list of email addresses that includes a few other folks who might be able to help us or provide information.

Get Involved!

The rewards of community involvement go far beyond Ancient Lore Village. Our county commission, city council, and planning commission welcome community involvement, and their meetings are open to the public. The Knoxville-Knox County Planning Commission is especially interested in feedback and participation from residents in formulating our Sector Plans, which determine the future direction of zoning and land use requirements.
