About the neighborhood
The association is named for Edgewood Park, one of the City of Knoxville's most attractive neighborhood parks with amenities including tennis courts, picnic gazebo, playground, shady park benches, and expansive lawn. Just uphill of the park is the North Knoxville Branch of the Knox County Public Library and the Larry Cox Recreation Center. First Creek flows nearby.
The neighborhood consists of moderately-priced houses and some apartments in a friendly, walkable community with many sidewalks and mature trees. Our neighborhood makes up most of Knoxville's census tract 16 (census information here, demographic table here).
About the association
The Edgewood Park Neighborhood Association represents folks who live in the area bounded by Broadway, Fairmont Boulevard, Whittle Springs Road, and Washington Pike. The people who live along Fairmont are not included, since they're represented by the Fairmont-Emoriland Neighborhood Association. Of course, even if you live outside of these boundaries, you're still welcome to join and attend our meetings.
The Association meets at 7 p.m. on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Larry Cox Senior Center, 3109 Ocoee Trail.
The neighborhood association has five elected officers. President is Cindy Latham, Vice President and President Elect is John Lane, Treasurer is Carol Zimmerman, Recording Secretary is Geordy Daws, and Corresponding Secretary is ________. Past Presidents Ellen Zavisca, Will Doyle and Melissa Brenneman are Board members.
Annual dues are $5.00 per voting member. There are no other dues.
The Association works on, among other things, traffic calming, beautification, and neighborhood watch. If you want to work on another project on behalf of the neighborhood group, please bring it up on this site or at a meeting and, odds are, the group will be supportive.
The neighborhood association began in the autumn of 1992 as the Whittle Springs/Belle Morris Community Association. The organization was incorporated and operated several years under that name. After some time of inactivity, the organization was revitalized in 2006 with the election of new officers, and the name was changed to avoid confusion with another neighborhood bounded by Whittle Springs Road.
