Active Knox

Bike Walk Knoxville served as a member of the National Association of Counties (NACo) formed with a technical assistance grant from NACo with a goal to improve the built environment for active transportation in Knox County.  The NACo team educates different audiences on the benefits of walkable, connected communities.  The NACo team created a video that summarizes our efforts:  https://vimeo.com/188694218

Once the NACo grant ended, the team transitioned to Active Knox, which launched in August 2016.  Active Knox was formed as a result of the Community Health Improvement Plan.  The goal of Active Knox is to increase active transportation and recreation by advocating for policies with implementation that improve connectivity for walking, biking, and transit.  The Active Knox team has developed an Action Plan to increase access to sidewalks, greenways, and parks in Knox County.  The team reports to the Knox County Community Health Council.  Dr. Caroline Cooley, President of Bike Walk Knoxville is the chair of this team that is comprised of multiple community partners.  This team partners with other like-minded organizations and has been hosting a Walkability Speaker Series
