Sustainable Development Incentives Program

Sustainable development is a pattern of resource use that aims to meet our needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for our future generations. It is a key principle underlying our comprehensive plan: The Knoxville–Knox County General Plan 2033.

Upon the initiative of MPC chairman Trey Benefield, a Sustainable Development Working Group was assembled to explore the development of a program to encourage sustainable development by providing incentives in the City and County Zoning Ordinances.
