    Downtown Kingsport Master Plan
    Join us for different workshops for the future of downtown
     
    Kingsport, TN – The Downtown Kingsport Master Plan is the city’s guiding document to create a vision to reinforce and magnify Kingsport’s downtown role as the economic and cultural heart of the community. Join us for three meetings to learn more about the future of our downtown.
     
     
    1. Community Education Session on Economics of Downtown
    November 28 – 7:00-8:30pm
    This will include a short presentation on online survey results and work done so far by the Project Team. An in depth presentation on the economics and market conditions in Kingsport will be presented by firm Urban 3 with strategies for a successful future including case studies on downtown redevelopment successes in other cities nearby such as Asheville, NC etc.
     
    1. Meet with the Design Team
    November 30 – 9:00-11:00am
    Please come sit and chat with the Project Team and give us your input on the ideas we have heard so far that we are working on. We will have conceptual drawings, streetscape designs, economic strategies/policy ideas and other items for the public to comment on before we have our final presentation on Thursday evening. All materials are purely conceptual at this point and up for discussion!
     
     
    1. Final Presentation
    November 30 – 6:30pm
    This presentation will include all materials created during the Workshop for the general public to comment on again including conceptual drawings, streetscape designs, economic strategies/policy ideas.  All materials are purely conceptual at this point and up for discussion!
    The master plan will facilitate the direction, type, location and scale of new development and associated downtown improvements for the next 10 years.
