The letter is an accurate description of what has happened in the Fort Sanders Neighborhood. The most telling part of a line in the letter, and which should be a canary in the mine to the rest of us, is, "...that if the city continued to do these things in Fort Sanders, that eventually nobody's property in Knoxville would be safe from spot zoning.". WAKE UP Knoxville! The redevelopers are at your door and you don't even know it.
Jack, I think you just realized that you grew up with the wrong crowd, those who put their own self interests before the city or the needs of others. Thankfully, Knoxville has many wealthy residents who do stay in Knoxville and continue to contribute to our city and our region. Let's not forget those who do care when we call out the ones who do not care. I think you have finally found your really important Knoxville people. Welcome!
