The Housing Workgroup from the ONEKingsport Community Summit, led by former mayor Jeanette Blazier, focused on the creation of strong neighborhoods. One recommendation to facilitate this accomplishment was the creation of a Neighborhood Commission. The Neighborhood Commission is composed of twelve Kingsport citizens who will advise on and promote initiatives to strengthen neighborhoods and, as needed, provide input to the Board of Mayor and Alderman on the impact of various programs to neighborhoods.
The Kingsport Neighborhood Commission meets the last Thursday of most months at 6 p.m. in the 3rd floor BMA Board Room at City Hall, located at 415 Broad Street in downtown Kingsport. All meeting are open to the public, and neighbors are encouraged to come share their thoughts and concerns with the commission. Meetings that aren’t on the last Thursday of the month due to a holiday are listed below.
