HISTORY

Founded In July 2010, Dandridge Community Trust was approved for a Green Innovation Grant through the Tennessee ECD.  A portion of this grant designated for the purpose of creating a Streetscape for the Downtown District.  DCT partnered with the East Tennessee Community Design Center (ETCDC) to implement this project.

 

StreetscapeMeetingAn important part of this project was the inclusion of residents ideas and input to "the look" of Dandridge.  DCT organized and ETCDC hosted a Public Input Meeting on January 25, 2011.  This meeting residents were invited to attend and give input through open discussion and an onsite slide survey.  ETCDC took the Input Meeting results back and began work on an overall Streetscape for Meeting , Gay, and Main Streets. 

 

 

Streetscape Follow-Up Meeting:  Public Presentation of Input Results

Main Street hosted a follow-up meeting on Thursday, May 19th to present the Streetscape Design results based on the public input meeting hosted in January.  Members on the community came out to be the first to view the exciting new Streetscape, designed by East Tennessee Community Design Center (ETCDC), for the historic district of downtown Dandridge.

 

ETCDC will be providing planning Phase recommendations and cost estimates in the near future.  Main Street plans to work in cooperation with the Town of Dandridge and Jefferson County to pursue public funding to begin implementation of the Streetscape Project.

Since then, DCT was worked with the Town of Dandridge and Jefferson County to gather information on what portion of the project should be the starting point, available grants to obtain financial support, and approval of the design concept.

 

DCT has received approval of the concept and ETCDC presented the Streetscape design to the Dandridge BMA on their March 6, 2012 Work Session. 

 

NEXT STEPS

DCT his working with ETCDC to formulate a Request for Proposal (RFP) to seek the appropriate architect, engineer, and landscape architect to hire for implementing the first phase of the Streetscape Project.  This will begin the long term process of taking concept to reality in downtown Dandridge. The architect team, along with matching grant dollars, now places DCT with the need to raise funds to take this concept to reality.
