Project Overview

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. Find out about the plan, process for developing it and review the project schedule.

Overview Sheet

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.

Project Phases and Schedule

Over the three-year PlanET process, three phases will lead to a targeted, meaningful outcome. Phase One (August 2011 – July 2012) will bring East Tennesseans together to establish a shared identity and vision. Phase Two (April 2012 – March 2013) will take that vision, and while educating and engaging the public, will develop a shared direction. Phase Three (January 2013 – December 2013) will produce and report the final product and focus on implementation activities.
