City Receives Award for Redevelopment

ETDD Brownfield AwardThe East Tennessee Development District (ETDD) held its Annual District Celebration Banquet last week in Alcoa, Tennessee. The Celebration was attended by over 150 people including local and state elected officials, Federal legislative representatives, Federal, State, and private partners, and ETDD team members.
Each year at the District Celebration, the East Tennessee Development District recognizes local governments and other agencies for the completion of projects that have special local or regional significance. During the award ceremony, ETDD recognized The City of Morristown for redeveloping a long-abandoned former trucking terminal known as the Roy Widener property. The redevelopment of the multi-level 31- acre site hopes to spur further economic investment in the surrounding area as well.
The award was accepted by the City of Morristown Assistant City Administrators Andrew Ellard and Larry Clark.
