Tonight County Commission will vote on yet another large rezoning of Knox County agricultural land. Neighbors off Chapman Highway in South Knox County’s historic Dry Hollow community are united, organized and well represented but still seem doomed to the same fate of communities across the county, the sweeping away of the county’s remaining green areas while citizens having less and less impact in the rezoning process.
Below is an article on the history and ecology of the Dry Hollow acreage – which is already being bulldozed even before a final rezoning vote. This excellent Hellbender Press article is being posted courtesy of Compass/Jesse Mayshark. Both presses are doing a fine job of documenting the rapid disappearance of Knox County greenspace. https://hellbenderpress.org/dry-hollow-special
