Below is an article I wrote last November about the need to update the zoning code and also is a 7 minute PechaKucha presentation I did last summer on the subject. If you have time, please check them out.

See you tomorrow!


This is a presentation I did over the summer:

PechaKucha 20x20 - Why Knoxville’s Zoning Code Prohibits Good Urban Design and Prevents Walkable Communities


Walkability is key in improving health, the local economy, and the environment. Unfortunately Knoxville’s zoning code prohibits mixed use, requires too much parking, and mandates large setbacks, all of which make Knoxville less walkable and transit friendly. In this presentation, Marshall Stair explores Knoxville and discusses what could be done to promote walkability in future developments.

This is an op-ed I wrote over a year ago:
