To Plant or Not to Plant?

Posted 04-18-18.

Spring is here, and that means….mowing the grass and fighting allergies! Fortunately, it also means temperatures are warming-up, trees are getting green and some plants are starting to bloom.

For City Parks and Recreation landscaping staff, it means working towards a decision on when to plant hundreds of flowers that have been growing in our greenhouses. In the meantime, we have already planted many beautiful pansies and tulips.

Each spring, our staff researches the long-term weather forecast on a daily basis as they attempt to decide when it is safe to start the major planting. It’s an important decision; planting too early can result in dead or damaged plants from frost. City staff cannot afford to plant too early, because we grow our own flowers and do not have a budget large enough to purchase replacement products.

So, the City will be planting around town soon…but not quite yet.

Traffic Signal Timing Changes Starting Next Week

Posted 04-13-18.

The City of Sevierville and contractors will be retiming traffic signals throughout the City beginning next week. The signal retiming is part of a project to move the City to a traffic responsive system, wherein traffic signals communicate in real-time to respond to traffic levels, resulting in increased traffic flow efficiency.

Motorists should be alert for changes in current timing and signal phases starting next week. The retiming phase of the project is expected to take several weeks to complete, so you may not see changes in your normal travel immediately.

The project is 100% federally-funded and includes the entire Highway 66 corridor, Dolly Parton Parkway, Main Street, the Parkway into Pigeon Forge, and Veterans Boulevard into Pigeon Forge.
