KINGSPORT – There is no doubt weve seen an amazing rebirth in downtown Kingsport during the past 10 years with $37,666,900 in new private taxable investment. Non-taxable projects brought another $129,000,000 of investment in the hospital, circle churches, and higher education.
These figures dont include the recent activity at Kingsport Press. With Mountain Region Family Medicine, Food City, and the Farmers Market, it is quickly transforming the western end of downtown.
Weve learned that when one door closes, another opens. However, when that door closes we mourn the loss and wonder what we could have done better. Thats the sign of a caring community.
To that end, we are interested in your opinion of Downtowns Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.
Please take a moment to complete the attached form and return it to the Downtown Kingsport Association or for your convenience you may respond through our website at www.development.kingsporttn.gov/DowntownKingsportSWOT
We plan to assemble the information and share the results in a public forum in mid-January. We would appreciate your prompt response within 48 hours.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Dennis R. Phillips, Mayor
City of Kingsport, Tennessee
