Actually there are several things that would help Knox County and the Center Piece should be Barbourville...

1) Designate downtown and a surrounding area a "Historical District"

This would allow rules for buildings and zoning along with Tax and Fee incentives for anyone that builds or upgrades building within the designated area where the buildings and facades are refurbished in turn of the century styling... This was made clear to me on a recent visit to Corydon,In and Stanford, Kentucky... Both towns have Historical Districts where anyone bringing buildings back to turn of the century conditions and moving in a tourist based biz paid no taxes on the properties during the refurbishing and for a years after opening to the public.

2) Allow Alcohol sales in restaurants and entertainment venues.

3) Tear Down the Court House and build a Small turn of the century style Court House with only 2 functions.. A Justice of the Peace office/Court Room and a Tourist Office... Build the Old Knox Central property into the main Knox County Court complex to move government biz and traffic off the court house square ... This would allow for parking and space for a tourist based biz sector...

4) Buy or build 2 Trolly Coaches based on the style of the Original Barbourville Trolly System .. These can be motor coaches instead of rail.

Here is the basic issue... Coal is a dead end economic market for our area , same can be said for Lumber industry.. The only resource we really have in the tourist industry and we have one of the longest and greatest Histories in the state.. Towns of historical significance that used that history have thrived when others around them crumble... Jobs come to service the industries..

Once you have entertainment, quality restaurants and jobs you can then attract the best and brightest and keep our best and brightest that then become involved in the government of the county... As it is with no entertainment, little to do on free time ect.. When our best and brightest reach 18 the first thing they want to do it Leave... When your best and brightest leave because of the environment we are left with worst and dimmest to run the county and educational systems... You have a higher percentage of those that can't cut it in the outside world, you have kids falling to drugs and violence...

Improve Knox County?

First of all, Knox County isn't a bad place to start with. Perhaps if all you people bitching and griping about it would leave, it would be a better place to start with, moron's.

It just needs better people to run it, and a Beter Hospital, for starter's.

Yes, I've been all over the Country, and I can tell most of these people haven't been out of this County in their lives very much, if any.

I'd rather live right here than just about any aother place I've been to.
