A new business park will soon be under development in Karns.
Knox County's Development Corporation has agreed to buy 70 acres in the community and turn it into a business park.
The property is located between Garrison Drive and Karns High School and used to be known as the Butler Farm. That's near the existing Westbridge Business Park and east of the proposed Karns Connector road project.
The Development Corporation hopes to have the property ready for tenants about the time the road is finished, late next year.
