Knoxville architect Robyn McAdoo has been appointed by Mayor Madeline Rogero to serve on the Board of Commissioners for Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC).
McAdoo, who works for Dollar & Ewers Architecture, brings extensive experience in project management to the board, which oversees all KCDC programs, including affordable public housing administration, redevelopment and rental assistance programs.
“Robyn is a great fit for the board because of her background in redevelopment and familiarity with Knoxville and the mission of this organization,” KCDC Executive Director and CEO Ben Bentley said. “We welcome her to the board, and KCDC will benefit from her insight and expertise.”
McAdoo, who earned a Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Tennessee in 2001, is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accredited Professional: Building Design and Construction through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
Community involvement includes serving as past president for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) East Tennessee and a board member for AIA State of Tennessee. She previously was chair of the Board of Zoning Appeals for the City of Knoxville and currently is a board member and membership chair for the Old City Neighborhood Association. She and her family are active members of First Presbyterian Church.
“I appreciate Robyn’s dedication to the community and her willingness to serve in this role,” Rogero said. As the City’s housing and redevelopment authority, KCDC provides critical services to thousands of people and is a crucial partner in our redevelopment efforts. Our entire community will benefit from Robyn’s expertise and commitment.”
McAdoo will serve through Sept. 30, 2018, and then will be eligible for an additional five-year term on the board, which consists of seven members appointed by the mayor, including a resident commissioner currently participating in a KCDC housing program.
“I have tremendous respect for work that KCDC does in the community in terms of affordable housing and economic development,” McAdoo said. “I am enthusiastic about serving the board and KCDC as we continue to find ways to enhance the quality of life for the citizens of Knoxville and Knox County.”
McAdoo resides in West Hills with husband Chris and children Carter and Harper.
