The City of Alcoa, in partnership with the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, was one of 14 communities nationwide selected for the technical assistance program from a pool of more than 120 applications. The program is made possible through a five-year Building Blocks for Sustainable Communities grant to Smart Growth America from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Sustainable Communities.

This workshop, part of a free, grant-funded technical assistance program, will provide local citizens and planners with tools and techniques to begin creating a vision for Alcoa’s future growth. The workshop will show how shifting development patterns towards more compact, walkable forms can boost the local economy and reduce public spending on infrastructure.

An in-depth workshop will take place the following day for joint staff and local development professionals.
