Kingsport, Tennessee (WJHL) — A Nashville-based consulting firm conducts a corridor survey of Lynn Garden Drive in Kingsport.
The city and the Greater Kingsport Alliance for Development (GKAD) are partnering to develop the study, which will be overseen by consulting firm Kimley Horn, according to the City of Kingsport.
“Kimley Hone surveyed the baseline and historical conditions of Lynn Garden Drive, documented several demographics of the area (household composition, income, education, tenure), and then conducted short-term studies of the corridor. We plan to analyze the short-term and long-term potential,” Kingsport said in a Thursday release.
The Corridor Study is reported to take about eight months to complete, with a projected completion date of June 2023. Once the study is complete, Kimley Horn will present a final plan that includes land use, development options, key catalyst sites, rendering of selected locations along the corridor, and ideas for public sector improvement projects.
A workshop will reportedly be held for the community, and Kingsport is already creating a Phase 1 redevelopment precinct for Lynn Garden.
