East Tennessee Quality Growth’s mission is to achieve quality growth through regional cooperation and local action and we can’t do that without you! You may know us through our Plain Talk conferences, or perhaps through our collaboration on projects like the Walkability Speaker Series (now the Active Knox Speaker Series) or the ETRLA Housing Conference. We have other projects happening too, like the Climate Resiliency presentations and the Citizens Academy for Planning. Or maybe it’s just through the newsletter we send you each month or our Youtube channel.
However you come to read this message, we thank you for paying attention to the happenings of our region and we hope you feel compelled to help us continue our work.
