TVA seeks public comment on new Knoxville headquarters

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Valley Authority is seeking input from the public about the potential environmental impacts of future plans for its downtown Knoxville headquarters.

The TVA said Thursday that the public is invited to comment through Oct. 28 on a draft Environmental Assessment related to the public power utility's headquarters.

The assessment considers whether TVA should sell the existing Knoxville Office Complex and Summer Place Complex and construct a new administrative headquarters on the Summer Place site, or build at another downtown Knoxville location. The report does not name a preferred option.

The draft report includes descriptions of the potential reuse, or demolition and redevelopment, of the two complexes and respective impacts on air quality, cultural resources, land use, noise, transportation and traffic, surface water and hazardous waste.
