CAPPE’s Annual Meeting is your opportunity to make your views known, learn about our plans for the year, and elect Board members. This is the first time we have held the Annual Meeting on a Sunday afternoon.

The program this year has an additional purpose: after our Annual Meeting adjourns, we are hosting the PlanET workshop on strengths and challenges facing our community.

PlanET is a 3-year regional planning initiative that aims to “develop a Regional Plan for Livable Communities, develop regional capacity to improve the quality of life for the residents of this region, and create and implement an ambitious regionwide, multi-jurisdictional plan that will integrate economic development, environment, infrastructure and public health elements in a comprehensive manner to address area needs.” The counties participating in PlanET are Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, and Union

John Lamb, Blount County Planner, will lead the workshop, during which each participant will have opportunities to identify major assets and challenges for our region. The results of our workshop will be combined by the PlanET staff with the results of other workshops to develop proposals for the future of our region.
