Beautify Your City

On Thursday, July 29, those interested in the long-term planning of Fort Sanders are invited to a meeting to review variances requested by Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center for proposed signs on the hospital's campus. At the meeting, hospital reps will make a presentation and then take comments and questions. The meeting takes place at 3:30 p.m. in the 2nd floor classrooms (A & B) of the Howard Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, 1640 Cumberland Ave.

Also on Thursday, at 4 p.m., the seven-member Public Art Committee will meet at the Knoxville Museum of Art. This two-year-old group is charged with integrating artwork throughout the city, so drop by if you're interested in adding your two cents.

Finally, the City Tree Board, tasked with coming up with a master tree plan for all municipal property, meets at Ijams Nature Center at 8 a.m. on Aug. 5.
