Mayor Rogero selects members for greenways commission

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero announced Tuesday the reorganization of the City of Knoxville Greenways Commission, an advisory board that has been inactive for the past several years.

After receiving nominations from members of City Council, Mayor Rogero appointed 20 members to the commission, including 12 community representatives and eight professional staff representatives.

"In the past, the Greenways Commission has provided valuable guidance and advocacy for the construction and growth of the City greenways system," Mayor Rogero said. "I know they will vigorously challenge us to continue the City's commitment to expand our network of greenways throughout Knoxville parks and neighborhoods."

The Greenways Commission will be responsible for upholding and building upon the existing Knoxville/Knox County Park, Recreation and Greenway Plan, and promoting the development of new greenways and the maintenance of existing greenways.

An initial meeting is planned for February, at a date to be announced. 

All members except for three city department heads will serve staggered initial terms of one, two or three years. After that, terms will be three years.
