Knoxville: Green by Nature

Released December 2013

Knoxville has reinvented itself, morphing from a “scruffy” river town to a city whose downtown is a sophisticated urban hotspot brushing up against the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. This translation has required vision, imagination and plenty of downright elbow grease—oftentimes with too little funding and almost always with a frightening lack of what many would consider a serious plan.
The creative movers and shakers, progressive politicians and businesspeople and some average citizens took a place that was Green by Nature and created one that is great by all accounts.
