welcome

Johnson City is a goal-oriented, high-energy, family-centered city with diverse economic components. Education, business, industry, civic and community organizations, and local government pull together to keep us moving forward. We have a diverse economy led by healthcare, education and an entrepreneurial spirit that lives on from our City’s founder, Henry Johnson.

We hold our natural beauty and resources in highest regard and lead the state of Tennessee in green initiatives. We received the Tennessee Municipal League’s first-ever Green City Leadership award for our environmental efforts.

This community is a thriving one because our 60,000+ residents are actively engaged. Neighborhood action committees, problem-solving task forces, public boards and committees, and outreach programs are creating a resilient, more cohesive community and strengthening government in its role of protecting and serving citizens.

I hope to hear from you. Share your perspectives. Volunteer your skills. Help us make Johnson City the best place to live, work, and raise a family.

M. Denis Peterson, City Manager
