Description

The following report prepared by the Harrison Price Company presents the findings and conclusions of a consulting program undertaken to aid the City of Knoxville in determining how best to deal with the problems and opportunities of redeveloping the Knoxville World's Fair site for the benefit of the community at large. It is not intended to be a definitive statement for the disposition of the property. The report is organized into six sections, including the introduction. The discussion begins with a section that suggests a method of approach towards the redevelopment process that other cities have found useful, and that the City of Knoxville might consider. This is followed by a chapter dealing with the characteristics and dimensions of the resident and tourist populations available for a project of regional scope in Knoxville, while the following section defines a recreational concept base that will maximize on-site visitation potential. Section Five then elaborates on the concept, while the final section summarizes briefly the economic impact of the recreational element of redevelopment during the first ten years of its life.
