Ron Kelly & Ken Poole Facilitate 3rd PlanET Economy & Workforce Working Group Meeting

August 21, 2012

On August 21, Ken Poole and Ron Kelly traveled to Knoxville, TN to facilitate the third Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) Economy & Workforce Working Group meeting.  During this meeting, participants discussed scenario development for the region, a draft regional vision for PlanET, and the seven preliminary goals of the regional plan.

PlanET is a three-phase regional planning process aimed at developing capacity to improve the quality of life for residents in the five-county region in east Tennessee.  In collaboration with Wallace Roberts & Todd and other partners, CREC is helping PlanET to reach its goals for Phase I, establishing an initial shared identity and vision for the region.
