This thesis assesses the mandated growth management legislation of Tennessee, Public Chapter 1101, and its implementation in Blount County. The actual legislation was reviewed in order to determine both the mandates and objectives included within the document. Blount County was then reviewed and observed as a case study, in order to gather information on the plan of action being taken by the county and its municipalities. The information gathered from Blount County was then compared to the objectives and mandates of the legislation in order to determine whether or not Blount County meet the mandates of the legislation and achieved the objectives. The thesis concludes with recommendations and key things learned from the implementation of Public Chapter 1101 in a real world situation.
