And The Survey Says: Where City Council Candidates Stand on Preservation

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

As you might suspect, preservation and politics are often linked. Whether it's historic zoning, financial incentives or ordinances that encourage redevelopment, preservationists spend a lot of time talking to politicians and government officials. Over the last decade or so Knoxville citizens and their City Council have grown to appreciate the benefits preservation has brought to downtown, historic neighborhoods and the overall tax base. It's been a cooperative period, but the number of new faces expected on City Council soon will impact the success of future efforts.

 

For that reason, Knox Heritage surveys candidates for political office so we can let our members and the public know where they stand on preservation issues. We've just published those responses on our website and invite you to read the responses. We hope you will consider them when you cast your vote.
