The TPO bids farewell to Kelley Segars

Kelley has spearheaded many significant initiatives in her 17 years with the TPO. She established and continued to expand I Bike KNX, the regional bicycle program, and the Smart Trips program. During her tenure with us, she has served as section director of the Tennessee chapter of American Planning Association, and coordinated a joint conference of the TN chapters of the APA, Institute of Transportation Engineers, and American Society of Landscape Architects. She also played a significant role in expanding the outreach and community engagement of the TPO, including for the most recent Mobility Plan.


Please join us in wishing her well. You can see her farewell message here.

Welcome to our new AmeriCorps member

The TPO, I Bike KNX and Smart Trips will all benefit from the addition of our newest AmeriCorps Intern. Hannah Kitterman, a recent UT-Knoxville graduate, joined us in August and is already hard at work!
