a Little Jamaica section (near old city), arcades, a public transit system (rail car/monorail), two large open air concert venues,
a several story building connecting to a two story pier that has boat slips and boat rentals (on the river) below the pier, pool tables and an arcade (on the first floor of the pier) and a large restaurant where bands can play (on the second story of the pier).
I'm for connecting old city, campus, South Knoxville, East Town Mall, Kingston Pike, West Town Mall, and Turkey Creek with a small raised monorail system. (maybe adding an additional section for Broadway/North Knoxville/Middlebrook areas.)
an inexpensive but well maintained tourist hostel and cheap (or almost free to stay at) travel stops, cheaper flights to and from Amsterdam, Germany, UK, NY, FL, CA, and Canada.
legalized marijuana, the ability to sell thc products at venues and restaurants, and thc products in grocery stores.
Dedicated greenhouses to regional plants and herbs that sell worldwide all year round (not just marijuana).The apple mint like the mint in the $1000 drink at the Kentucky Derby? Mayo in Knoxville sells it for $3.50.
Better public housing, more adequate housing for the homeless, more government grants for people/charities like the Love Kitchen to expand in this state and maybe to other states?
A really inexpensive gondola lift (at least over the RIVER) is another cool idea.
A facility that provides indoor snowboarding or skiing also has potential? I loved this idea and think that it would go over well in Miami and New York also.
I lived in Knoxville, TN a couple of years. Most people are very polite, open, and friendly. These are citizens Knoxville, TN can be proud of.
HOWEVER some of the hipsters have attitude problems and are extremely rude (no one KNOWS why exactly? based in what is this attitude problem?! what premise do they have to be that snooty?) It doesn't help us win educational funding or better venues and will MAKE tourists stay away.
Maybe things will get better?
