New Citizens and Bridges

Catholic Charities of East Tennessee will hold a free citizenship workshop from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 10, for permanent residents interested in applying for naturalization. Representatives from the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, the UT Legal Clinic, and Legal Aid of East Tennessee will be on hand to help out, and if you would like to volunteer there's a training session on April 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Both the training session and the citizenship workshop will be held at the Knox County Public Defender's law office, 1101 Liberty St.

On Tuesday, April 13, the city's engineering department will hold a meeting to discuss proposed improvements to Westland Drive. The city is planning to widen two narrow bridges—one at Craigland Court and another near the waterwheel at Sherwood Drive—and make various improvements to drainage systems and the shoulder along the road. The city expects work to begin in the fall and to last into the spring, and for the project to cost about $850,000.

The meeting takes place from 5 to 7 p.m. at the First Church of God, 6708 Westland Dr.
