City welcoming input on Five Points revitalization

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Knoxville officials continue to focus their efforts on the city's Five Points neighborhood, hoping to revitalize the area.

Thursday night, people had the chance to give their input.

It's the second of three meetings put on by the Knoxville Community Development Corporation.

Officials hope these meetings will give people a clear vision of the group's ultimate goal.

"If we tear down public housing, we rebuild the community where the new roads are going to be where the new sidewalks are going to be -- where new greenspace is going to be located at -- where the new housing units are going to be -- so it's going to be a way to give the public the opportunity to see what it's going to look like when it's finished," Alvin Nance, CEO of KCDC told Local 8 News.

The final meeting will be held next month.
