Tennessee RiverLine Releases First Research Findings, Recommendations To Expand Relationships

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

The Tennessee RiverLine has released comprehensive research findings and recommendations from its first immersive community outreach program. Each river community that participated in the Pilot Community Program benefits from the research insights and recommendations specific to their communities, and the findings are available to all communities along the Tennessee River and beyond.

A collaborative project between the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the Tennessee RiverLine Partnership, the Tennessee RiverLine will be a continuous system of paddling, hiking, and biking experiences along the Tennessee River’s 652-mile reach from Knoxville to Paducah, Ky. River communities that become a part of the Tennessee RiverLine benefit from economic development and entrepreneurship opportunities, quality of life amenities that improve public health, increased access to the river for all, and generations of river advocates who are active participants in its stewardship. Participating communities also receive support to understand their current relationship with the river and a framework to enhance that relationship with community programming and data-driven recommendations.
