Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Students present findings in Cleveland, Tennessee
Smart Communities Initiative Enters Design Phase

Chatanoogan (TN)
October 15, 2014

University of Tennessee, Knoxville students went to Cleveland on Friday and Monday as they transition from gathering data to the design phase of the Smart Communities Initiative.

UTK chose the City of Cleveland as its first partner in the university’s interdisciplinary program under which faculty and students will work with city staff on identified projects during the Fall semester.

Planning Director Greg Thomas submitted a list of 19 projects for consideration aimed at increasing the level of economic viability, environmental sustainability and social integrity of the city.

Four senior civil engineering students surveyed Inman Street West Friday afternoon as part of a proposal to install sidewalks on Inman Street between Broad and Keith Streets. Inman Street passes east to west through the heart of Cleveland. The area west of Broad Street to Keith Street is a densely developed, mid-1900s, four-lane commercial corridor mostly without sidewalks and without bus shelters. The Greenway is to be extended south to Inman Street and perhaps eastward along Woolen Mill Branch. The terrain falls rapidly westward from Broad Street and much of this area is generally level and poorly drained, being essentially creek bottomland covered by pavement for decades.
