An initiative to rename the collective Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia region now has a website, www.NameOurRegion.com, where the public can provide input and stay informed about the process.

Last week, the governments of Johnson City; Kingsport; Bristol, Tennessee; Bristol, Virginia; Washington County, Virginia; Washington County, Tennessee; and Sullivan County issued a joint press release explaining the need for a regional identity and how the process of creating one would unfold.

“What do you think of, when you think of home? Our mountains, our history, all our people with unique stories — all of that’s home,” the press release states.
