The Office of Housing and Community Development (OHCD) purchased property located at Union and Third Streets from the DDP. In the summer of 2008, OHCD partnered with the University of Tennessee School of Architecture and Design to study the area and to prepare workforce housing designs for future development of the site.
On December 9, 2008 students from the University of Tennessee School of Architecture and Design will present their design-studio work from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 pm. in the large meeting room at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Library located at 350 Pageant Lane.
We hope that you will join us in celebrating their work and provide your input about their ideas. These designs are part of a collaborative partnership between the University of Tennessee and the City of Clarksville Office of Housing and Community Development. I believe that this project is another real opportunity to show what collaboration can do and to get us to think about our roles in the community, what housing should be and to show that affordable housing can be a higher quality design than what most people think.
The City will begin clearing the site in late December. The housing planned for the site is part of the Office of Housing and Community Development’s Workforce Housing Initiative. The community is invited to attend the presentation of designs.
