William Blount Greenway Idea


I’m an at-large community representative on the City of Knoxville Greenways Commission.

It’s a citizens advisory board that provides input to the City of Knoxville on greenway plans.

Some input I’ve supplied to the City is that there should be an easy bike and pedestrian path from the Old City / North and East Knoxville to the Tennessee River and UT Campus.

Can you check out my latest blog entry and let me know if the W.B. Association might be interested in supporting a concept for a new downtown "William Blount Greenway" connecting the Old City to Volunteer Landing via Central Avenue and an easement across W.B. Association property?

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
