The TYP received a lot of attention in the press between Friday and Sunday last week.
On Friday, Pam Strickland’s op-ed column addressed the issue of excluding possession and consumption of alcohol from permanent supportive housing facilities. The KNS editorial board addressed the same issue in its Sunday editorial. This issue surfaced in a Knox County Commission work session a week ago, in which Mayor Tim Burchett discussed withdrawing County support from the TYP if alcohol is allowed on the premises of supportive housing developments connected with the TYP.
The KNS also published on Sunday a report on a roundtable discussion about the TYP. The discussion took place several weeks ago and covered a lot of territory that will be familiar to people who’ve followed the TYP.
