Our Smokies, Our Future is a “visionary process” for our county. The idea is to have a non-governmental, facilitator-led, grassroots process to generate ideas and develop widespread consensus on issues designed to benefit our entire county. It is led by a volunteer Steering Committee representing all parts of the county, coordinated by Stefanie Johnson. Over the next few months we will listen to the ideas of thousands of Sevier County residents in an inclusive and transparent manner. We will use those ideas to build a shared vision and to identify the necessary actions to transform the vision into reality.
It is our hope that every member of our community will thoughtfully consider joining us in this remarkable journey to build a citizen-driven, shared vision for the future of Sevier County, Tennessee and the Smoky Mountain Recreation Area.
