Kevin Carter started this petition to Knox County, TN Commisioner Larsen Jay and

The residents of the Karns Community of Knox County, TN urge the County Commission to OPPOSE and DENY the efforts of Angelic Ministries to open a Men's Boarding House located at 3430 Zion Lane. 

This facility is to be a “residential” home to provide “support for people getting back on their feet”. The proposal would house 12 residents plus 2 staff members. 

These residents have been incarcerated and or referred thru other avenues to work on goals to assist in re-entering society. By Angelic Ministries' own admission, this facility is to provide an environment for men who are not able to currently rejoin the community on their own. This development will be highly transient as residents enter and exit the program at different times. There are NO “Security” officers present at the facility, only staff thru Angelic Ministries.

The only reason this location has been chosen is because it is a pre-existing facility. There are no other reasonable considerations for this facility to be located on Zion Lane considering its proximity to any public resources provided by Knox County, Knoxville, or the State of Tennessee.  

Due to the hundreds of single family homes with children within proximity of 3430 Zion Lane, our concern for our families is great due to the adverse problems a home like this would bring to our community.
