UTC Covers BellSouth Real Yellow Pages
Have you noticed UTCs Fletcher Hall is featured on the cover of
the new BellSouth Real Yellow Pages? Last week, city and county officials
joined Patsy Hazlewood, BellSouth Regional Director and Nancy Viagas,
Regional Marketing Manager of BellSouth on the UTC campus for the official
unveiling of the phonebook cover.
"UTC is an icon of the Chattanooga community, and at BellSouth we
believe in the Universitys sense of community and values. We are
so proud to feature UTC on the phonebook cover, and we look forward to
our partnership with the University for many years," Viagas said.
Representative Tommie Brown and others received a framed photo of Fletcher
Hall as it appears on the cover of the phone book. Browns office
was in Fletcher during her tenure as a UTC professor, and she expressed
her pride in the progress of institution.
Following the BellSouth presentation, UTC Vice Chancellor for Finance
and Operations Richard Brown announced details of an upcoming campus planning
"We are inviting input from Fort Wood, Erlanger, Unum Provident and
our faith-based neighbors into the ongoing planning and development of
East Third, Fourth, Fifth and Vine Streets," Brown said.
The two-day meeting will be held August 29-30, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., in McKenzie
Arena. Through the Lupton Renaissance Fund, consultant Rick Wood from
The Trust for Public Land has been hired, and he will steer the discussion
while working with the Regional Planning Agency and other entities. Topics
to be discussed include: vehicular and pedestrian circulation on the UTC
campus; division of the Engel Stadium property and landscaping, lighting
and signage on campus.
In 2001, The Lupton Renaissance Fund was established by Chattanooga philanthropist
Jack Lupton and his wife, Alice. The couple donated $25 million to UTC.
In 1999, the University engaged in a similar planning process, and a dialogue
began with the MLK neighborhood. The results were UTC Place apartments
and the new elementary schools.
