Development plans for Knoxville's south waterfront are moving forward. The city council passed a resolution Tuesday giving Mayor Rogero the authority to build a permanent greenway and the Cityview Riverwalk Extension.
The riverwalk extension would move west of the current cityview at Riverwalk Condos, then go south toward Blount Avenue. The condos sit on the south waterfront next to the Henley Bridge.
This is all part of the South Waterfront Vision Plan.
TDOT awarded the city more than $600,000 in August of 2009 for use on the south waterfront.
