Ten-Year Plan: Let's Talk, Some More

Although public discussion of the Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness has been occupied in recent weeks with questions about who’s allowed to drink what and where, the TYP office is continuing its efforts to broaden the conversation. At its next public meeting, on Wednesday, Nov. 17, the focus will be on public housing and the roles it can—and can’t—play in meeting the needs of the chronically homeless.

Deborah Taylor, Section 8 director for Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation, will give a half-hour presentation on subsidized housing and the population it serves. That will be followed by a half-hour of public Q&A (although as in previous TYP public meetings, discussion will be steered toward the night’s topic). It might not be as exciting as listening to people yell about how the city’s going to cram alcoholic crackhead thugs into their neighborhood, but there’s a chance it will be more enlightening.

The meeting will run from 6-7 p.m. on the 17th, at the New Harvest Park community building (4775 New Harvest Lane), north of Knoxville Center mall.
