The reason Knoxville will never be on the level of Asheville is because we see 'underdeveloped' land and immediately assume it needs something. The motive behind the financial backing of these projects is to gentrify south Knoxville to attract business. This is not secret, it's part of Legacy's goals. I understand the need to tell a complete history Mr. Neely, but why did you not include any differing viewpoints. I could get all this information from a Legacy Brochure. Old state reports at the Library concerning the French Broad Watershed state the need to protect soil from erosion and to monitor wildlife habitat. This does not fit into the Legacy Parks recreation vision. I have seen existing trails cut over again with the excavator just to allow ease of mtn. biking. This is both not necessary and destructive. Knoxville severely lacks environmentalism. The type and quality of work from the mtn. bikers runs counter to protecting the areas, as Carol Evans delusionally believes. To alter the land again - because most of the areas were former human-centric areas - to suit our shortsided needs under the belief of conservation is ridiculous. But, you would have to actually see the areas for yourself I suppose.
