Addressing our future mobility needs now

BY ALEX PAWLOWSKI
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 12, 2015

Like any city, mobility is key to Knoxville’s future development and its larger success as a strong and diverse community. While increased access to greenways, the Urban Wilderness, and a movement back to downtown have provided alternative options to its automotive centered culture, the automobile looks to serve Knoxville for years to come. But what will that look like? And what are the challenges that exist between serving the needs of Knoxville residents and the environment in which Knoxville works and enjoys?

Dear Adults

BY MELODY GOMEZ
@ VOL 17 ON OCT 21, 2017

Melody Gomez works with Square Peg Youth Empowerment. Melody asks how often do we consider that we are projecting expectations on our youth, and are asking them for blind compliance with explicit interference. Are we asking of our youth what we wouldn’t want for ourselves? Maybe the Panacea to global ills is as simple as recognizing that our youth are rookie global citizens, and we should ask them take a bigger role in their world. Melody asks are we the role models with whom our youth want to participate?
