From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

These directional signs in Crossville, photographed in 1937 by Ben Shahn as part of a New Deal program, helped travelers find their way to other Tennessee cities and towns.

There are 347 incorporated municipalities in the state of Tennessee.[1] Incorporated municipalities in the state are designated as "cities" or "towns". This list includes all 351 municipalities that were in existence as of the 2000 U.S. Census.

As of the 2000 U.S. Census, 3,159,375 Tennesseans,[2] or 55.5% of the state's total population of 5,689,283, resided in incorporated municipalities. The remainder resided in unincorporated areas.

Municipal charters

Before 1954, all Tennessee municipalities were established by private act of the state legislature and operated under charters established by private act of the legislature. As of 2007, 212 of the state's municipalities were operating under charters established by private act of the legislature. In 1953, amendments to the Tennessee Constitution prohibited subsequent incorporations by private act and provided for several new forms of municipal charter. Fourteen cities, including Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga, three of the state's four largest cities, are "home rule cities" organized under charters approved by referendum of the citizens. Home rule charters are authorized by Article XI, Section 9, of the Tennessee State Constitution, as amended in 1953. Other municipalities are incorporated under one of several standardized types of charter authorized by state statute:[3]

Some Tennessee municipalities are called "cities" and others are called "towns."[4] These terms do not have legal significance in Tennessee[5] and are not related to population, date of establishment, or type of municipal charter.

Under current state law (TCA Title 6), a minimum of 1,500 residents are required to incorporate as a new municipality under the mayor-alderman or city manager-commission charter, and a minimum of 5,000 residents are required to incorporate under a modified city manager-council charter. In general, unincorporated areas within three miles of an existing municipality (within five miles if the municipality has a population of 100,000 or more) are not permitted to incorporate as new municipalities. Provisions for incorporation were less restrictive in the past.

There are 347 incorporated municipalities in the state of Tennessee.[1] Incorporated municipalities in the state are designated as "cities" or "towns". This list includes all 351 municipalities that were in existence as of the 2000 U.S. Census.

As of the 2000 U.S. Census, 3,159,375 Tennesseans,[2] or 55.5% of the state's total population of 5,689,283, resided in incorporated municipalities. The remainder resided in unincorporated areas.

Municipal charters

Before 1954, all Tennessee municipalities were established by private act of the state legislature and operated under charters established by private act of the legislature. As of 2007, 212 of the state's municipalities were operating under charters established by private act of the legislature. In 1953, amendments to the Tennessee Constitution prohibited subsequent incorporations by private act and provided for several new forms of municipal charter. Fourteen cities, including Memphis, Knoxville, and Chattanooga, three of the state's four largest cities, are "home rule cities" organized under charters approved by referendum of the citizens. Home rule charters are authorized by Article XI, Section 9, of the Tennessee State Constitution, as amended in 1953. Other municipalities are incorporated under one of several standardized types of charter authorized by state statute:[3]

Some Tennessee municipalities are called "cities" and others are called "towns."[4] These terms do not have legal significance in Tennessee[5] and are not related to population, date of establishment, or type of municipal charter.

Under current state law (TCA Title 6), a minimum of 1,500 residents are required to incorporate as a new municipality under the mayor-alderman or city manager-commission charter, and a minimum of 5,000 residents are required to incorporate under a modified city manager-council charter. In general, unincorporated areas within three miles of an existing municipality (within five miles if the municipality has a population of 100,000 or more) are not permitted to incorporate as new municipalities. Provisions for incorporation were less restrictive in the past.

There are approximately 348 incorporated municipalities in the state of Tennessee. Of these, 212 were chartered by private act of the state legislature before 1954. A 1953 amendment to the Tennessee Constitution prohibited subsequent incorporations by private act. Thirteen cities are "home rule cities" organized under charters approved by referendum of the citizens. Other municipalities are incorporated under one of four general types of charter authorized by state statute:[1]

  • 70 cities use a mayor-aldermanic Charter.
  • 51 cities use a uniform city manager-commission charter.
  • Two cities (Elizabethton and Union City) are incorporated under a modified city manager-council charter.
  • Consolidated city-county governments exist in three places: Nashville and Davidson County, Lynchburg and Moore County, and Hartsville and Trousdale County.

Some Tennessee municipalities are called "cities" and others are called "towns."[2] These terms do not have significance with respect to population, date of establishment, or type of municipal charter.
