February Neighborhood Meeting

Develop New Leadership

At the beginning of 2015, a meeting was held to start a neighborhood association. The purpose of the neighborhood association is to improve the neighborhood, fight crime and blight, and to create a sense of community. All neighborhood associations help to make Knoxville a more livable city. During 2015, the Timbercrest Neighborhood Association was officially created. A pilot program was conducted by a select group of residents to assess whether our community would show interest in community events. The response was extremely positive. Due to the outstanding interest demonstrated by our neighborhood residents, it was decided that our Timbercrest Neighborhood Association needs official leadership. During the upcoming neighborhood meeting, a vote will take place for the following officer postions: President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, and Treasurer(s). Please come to cast your vote!
