Clarksville TN – Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan announces the formation of the Access Management Ordinance Task Force as a result of a public meeting to discuss the proposal to revise Clarksville’s access ordinance.
“Part of what we discussed during the public meeting a couple of weeks ago is that as far back as 2001, at least two committees were formed to draft and review the first access management ordinance. A request was made that I create a similar group to review the revisions being proposed by the Street Department and to make recommendations to the Street Committee and the City Council,” said Mayor McMillan.A PowerPoint presentation outlining the Department’s proposed revision can be viewed by visiting www.cityofclarksville.com and following the links to the Street Department’s page.
“While I expect they will begin with the work already done by the Street Department, I
am placing no restrictions on this Task Force as to their discussions or the language they ultimately propose.”
The Members of the Task Force are
- David B. Smith, who will serve as Chair
- Eddie Burchett
- Chris Cowan
- Jim Durrett
- Jack Frazier
- Dr. David Ripple
- David Shepard
- Richard Swift
- Vernon Weakley
“To the extent possible, I have asked the members of the original committees to serve on this Task Force. I appreciate their commitment to this project and for their willingness to, again, give of their time and energy. I look forward to hearing their ideas as we move forward to create an access management ordinance that addresses this complex issue,” said Mayor McMillan.
