The Enterprise Center and its partners the City of Chattanooga, River City Company, UTC, and the Chattanooga Design Studio are launching a planning process for the future development and advancement of the Innovation District. This 140-acre district contains economic, cultural, commercial, place-making, and educational assets, yet there are important opportunities for improvements and developments in the district that could benefit the city as a whole, officials said.
“The Innovation District is about harnessing the unique ideas and talents of all Chattanoogans. This planning process will empower everyone to take part in building the future of this important part of our City,” says Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke.
"The question is simple: What do you want to see in Chattanooga's Innovation District? Do you have plans for this 140-acre entrepreneurial epicenter? Come share your thoughts, let your voice be heard, and be hands-on in planning the future of the District," officials said.
"Getting the community involved and engaged makes an incredible impact on what gets accomplished. It's important to have a variety of people who care about the District around the table during this planning process," says Kim White, president & CEO of River City Company.
"So come find your place at the table."
"U3 Studio, a collaboration of U3 Advisors and CorneilCo, who have helped plan other innovation districts around the country, will be facilitating this public brainstorming workshop with local stakeholders (that's you)," officials said. "The workshop will start at 5 p.m. on Monday on floor five at The Edney Innovation Center. Come join the discussion and help take Chattanooga's Innovation District to the next level. Drinks and snacks will be provided."
