The Knoxville City Council approved Concept 1 from Confluence as the design for the VA Campus Redevelopment project. Interim City Manager Heather Ussery says this is an important step in the process, and allows the project to move forward.

“The council has had several conversations with the county board of supervisors, as well as the school, because they’re involved in this concept. It was the formal step that the board of supervisors needed to continue their process in issuing bonds, as well as our 28E agreement we’re working through with them. We formally approved that concept and we have it on record that Concept 1 is the concept that we’re working towards.”
