To Savor the Sweet—and the Scruffy

A series of public suggestions for civic improvement

“Knoxville really needs to come into its own. We no longer need to compare ourselves to nearby cities. We’re a pretty damn sweet city. Look at our downtown area—we’re hustling and bustling. Look to our neighborhoods radiating from downtown, each unique, oozing history and character. As a whole, we are home to vibrant music, art, academic, business, blue collar, white collar communities that are all held together all by a lil’ scruffy.”

—R. Bentley Marlow, Mechanicsville resident
