Mayor Rogero Interviewed by Smart Growth America

Craig Chester, writing at the website for Smart Growth America, a national organization “dedicated to researching, advocating for and leading coalitions to bring smart growth practices to more communities nationwide,” interviewed Mayor Madeline Rogero about Knoxville's urban resurgence:

“Knoxville, Tennessee is refocusing development toward the city’s historic core and older neighborhoods, and the strategy is driving an economic turnaround for the city.

“Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, a member of the Advisory Board of Smart Growth America’s Local Leaders Council, says the city has focused on “strong, safe neighborhoods; living green and working green; an energized downtown and job creation and retention” during her time in office. The approach is bringing new businesses and residents to downtown Knoxville.”
