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 each month at 6 p.m. in the City Hall Council Room, located at 225 West Center 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.
Good Neighbor Opportunities
The Kingsport Neighborhood Commission seeks to improve all of Kingpsport’s neighborhoods and the quality of life of all the neighbors who live in them. One great way to help with that mission is through volunteer work. Visit Volunteer Kingsport for more information on opportunities to help your neighbors in need.
