Sidewalks That Don't End

A series of public suggestions for civic improvement

"Real estate developers take note: Knoxvillians need neighborhoods with sidewalks. Sounds ridiculously obvious, but sidewalks encourage walking and build better, healthier communities.

"If you go through old neighborhoods—e.g., Fort Sanders, Fourth and Gill, Old North Knoxville—you'll find sidewalks. But if you live in a suburban community built in the 1960s onward, you're probably out of luck."
