The Knox County Commission plans to consider the controversial Dry Hollow rezoning proposal in far South Knox County at 7 p.m. tonight (Monday, May 23) in the Main Assembly Room of the City-County Building at 400 Main St.
Knox County Commission was originally set to decide Jan. 24 about a controversial South Knox County rezoning that would allow for the construction of 255 homes on previously agricultural land. The decision on both Thunder Mountain Properties LLC requests were twice deferred to a later meeting.
Opponents cite the need to preserve the vanishing farms and natural areas of Knox County and say inadequate civic infrastructure exists in the area.
Hellbender Press has reported extensively on the Dry Hollow suburban housing project planned in a rural area near the border with Sevier County.
If detractors or supporters cannot make it to the meeting they can call and/or write their neighborhood’s representative and the two at-large commissioners, Larsen Jay and Justin Biggs. Contact information is on the Commissioners page.
