I'm assuming that you must already have a well-paying job? But, I'm quite sure that many others that live in Lenoir City will welcome the developers with open arms because this will mean job opportunities for the community.

We've just moved to Lenoir City and I look forward to the growth. As long as city officials plan ahead for the traffic and conjestion. Turkey Creek is a perfect example of what not to do. All the property along both sides of 321 between I75 and I40 is for sale and there are already 2 new projects other than the "Market" that have recently broken ground along there. Anyone know what they are going to be?

Sorry, I can't answer your question, because I'm actually in Philadelphia. I'm trying to move to Knoxville. I've heard about all of the development that is going on and it sounds very interesting. Seems like Knoxville is "up and coming." The city will probably have a bright future.

Is Lenoir City outside of Knoxville?

Lenoir City is just outside of West Knoxville, I've lived here for 13 years and I must say I welcome the growth, It will be nice to have somewhere to shop besides Walmart LOL!!

So is Lenoir City a very rural area? And if so, is that the reason for the lack of shopping centers?

Probably just speculative site work.

Most of the jobs that are gonna be brought here by this development will be little more than minimum wage. I hope this isn't your idea of a well paying job.

No. That's not true. People in management positions are always offered a higher salary. Trust me there will be people who will surely be making more than minimum wage.

You are correct. However,MOST of those jobs won't be mgmt.positions.They will be retail sales. Which is not good paying. For that matter I wouldn't consider retail mgmt.good paying. I don't know for sure,but I would say somewhere in the low 30's for mgmt.and if you are married with a couple of kids that sucks.

The reason for the lack of shopping centers is that we really haven't needed them.

Now, with all of the lake front development and people
relocating here they want to try and keep the tax dollars here.

The problem with all of this is we aren't ready for it. Traffic here is allready terrible and this is just going to make matters worse. If and when they start on the new bridge to cross the river and lake it is really going to be bad.

Sometimes development isn't that good of a thing!

As I stated before I live in Philly so I've gotten used to traffic. But if you've been living in an area that has fairly light traffic; when traffic does increase, it'll feel like a gigantic dose of culture shock.

So, yes, I see your point-of-view.

My advice to you: Learn how to drive aggressively. LOL!!!

I live in Loudon but drive to Lenoir City on a daily basis. Do you really think that traffic is already bad in LC? I drive back & forth to work in Knoxville, now the interstate traffic can be awful, but LC traffic? I have only had to sit in traffic in LC during the 4th of July fireworks. I am just really surprised to hear someone talk about LC's traffic problems. I actually think that it is very easy to drive around there.

Oh, when Loudon had the new bridge installed, it was not too bad. They built the new bridge without affecting the old one. When it was ready to open, the old bridge was closed. I do not recall any major issues over the bridge with traffic. I heard that they are planning on doing the same thing to LC's bridge. I am looking forward to more variety of shopping without having to drive all the way to Knoxville. I have stopped shopping at Walmart recently & it has been a pain to drive to Knoxville with the gas prices so high.

I've whupped most if not all of the men in Lenoir City. It's time real money went to the city that holds the county seat and not the Farragut wanna-bes ! All I can say is the new shops better have Spanish price tags !

Redskin pride forever !

Philly traffic is h-e-l-l-i-s-h to say the least. LOL!!!

I don't remember any horrible traffic the last time that I visited Knoxville, but that was in the 1990's. But from what I understand Knoxville's population has increased significantly, which would explain more traffic on the roads.

I95 from Dc to the top of Boston is hellish. I don't understand how anybody puts up with it. Lets not forget the tolls either.By the way,Tn.is looking into those also.Tolls I mean.

Wow! Tennessee doesn't have many toll roads? I have never really paid much attention to that before.
