In the spring of 2015 as a follow-up to the Moccasin Bend Gateway Plan adopted in 2012, the City engaged Jones & Jones Architects, Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon and Arcadis to design a new Riverwalk route and provide street designs that accommodate biking, pedestrian ways, trucking, public art, and parks. The “North Shore Public Spaces Project” is about moving a step closer to implementing the gateway vision and planning for future connections to the National Park on Moccasin Bend. Multi-modal connections for Cherokee Blvd, the Hill City/Northside neighborhoods and Manufacturer’s Road will also be studied. Please keep checking back with us for progress or see the documents below. You may contact the RPA Community Design Group at (423) 645-5901 or email for more information.

OPEN HOUSE Thursday, August 27th, 2015 A public open house was held to review design proposals from our team. We wanted to hear from residents and area stakeholders to help formulate community-based designs for new public spaces and an improved public realm. The gathering at 800 Manufacturer’s Rd (the Roadtec offices across from Chattanooga Bakery) along with other venues (held at area parks and public spaces over a two day period) engaged several hundred people and provided an opportunity to participate.  Please see the presentation here.

*NOTE: August 27th, 2015 “Public Open House” slideshow presented as a DRAFT.
