One thing we’ve heard from multiple supporters of Ancient Lore Village is that they believe it would reduce the incidence of littering in our community.

While we fully agree with the need to keep Knox County clean, there are better ways to achieve this. Keep Knoxville Beautiful was established in 1978, and its mission is to “promote litter eradication, recycling, and beautification efforts in Knox County communities using education, events, and volunteer engagement.” Did you know that Keep Knoxville Beautiful offers help in organizing litter cleanups and can even provide supplies? Keep Knoxville Beautiful has a page where you can submit a Report a Litter Hotspot. Check out their website, and see what you can do to help today.

We don’t need a big, commercial enterprise in the middle of our quiet, rural neighborhood to keep our landscape clean and beautiful.
