The Whole Village Approach to Planning

"Knoxville needs to remember that we are not a small village and cannot be governed that way. We need to make use of the active and educated element, specifically taking advantage of their core competencies. Planners, architects, and urban developers, as well as business innovators and entrepreneurs are all fields that are well-represented in the citizenry and routinely ignored when seeking the path forward."

—Stephen M. Dupree, actor, author, thinker
