Group forming 'beautification mobs' in Knoxville


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - You can help Keep Knoxville Beautiful this spring. The group is planning "beautification mobs," focusing on high-profile spots that could use a little fixing up.

Organizers say they took the highly successful small business cash mob idea and turned it into another way to help the city.     

Keep Knoxville Beautiful is now taking nominations for areas that need work like routine maintenance, landscaping or cleaning.     

The group hopes to host several mobs this year, so they also need volunteers.

Criteria for nomination and selection will include:

  • unsightly vegetated spaces
  • high visibility / high profile locations
  • space limited in area (no more than 500 square feet)
  • suited to low-profile landscaping options
  • owner(s) amenable to access
  • volunteers willing to adopt, beautify and maintain

Anyone may nominate a location simply by sending an email stating the details of the proposed location to KKB Executive Director Allison Teeters at

Suggested locations for Beautification Mob attention will be screened and locations selected by the KKB Board of Directors and staff.
