Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) is a regional partnership of communities building a shared direction for our future. We seek ideas about protecting our valuable resources and addressing our challenges regarding jobs, housing, transportation, a clean environment, and community health. Our goal is to create long-term solutions for investments in our region and to define the next chapter in our rich history, leaving a legacy of optimism and opportunity for future generations.

Funded through a combination of federal dollars and local support, PlanET is a three-year process that will focus on five counties in the Knoxville metropolitan area: Anderson, Blount, Knox, Loudon, and Union counties. PlanET is designed to:
- Foster ongoing citizen involvement in planning for the region’s future;
- Develop a regional “blueprint” to guide development over the next decades; and
- Increase local capacity for dialogue and plan implementation.
