Big-Time Plans, Small-Town Charm

The ETCDC, alongside volunteer professional advisor Sean Vasington, ASLA, was able to develop a 20-30 year Master Plan that reflects data gathered from several trips to the city and community input offered through a public meeting held on March 12, 2013 in the Maynardville City Hall.

A major area of focus was the impact of Maynardville Highway (TN-33) on the downtown. Some suggested improvements included: traffic calming, courthouse renovations, downtown beautification, sidewalk additions, preservation of historic buildings and an emphasis on Maynardville’s deep history of country music. Community input also showed a strong desire to prevent the development of large-scale commercial and industrial construction.

The Downtown Maynardville Master Plan explores the town’s unique, existing assets and provides for future opportunities. As per community input, the town of Maynardville holds a small-town charm that became increasingly important to maintain as the design progressed. With improvements like the extension and enhancement of existing sidewalks, residents of Maynardville can be connected across the downtown area to various shops, restaurants, and community activities without relying on vehicles. This, along with a newly proposed park, greenway loop, and additional streetscaping helps to emphasize the developing character of downtown, while also promoting healthy lifestyles and a more pedestrian friendly environment.
