Clarksville-Montgomery County sends Public Comments in response to Army’s SPEA report for Force Structure Realignment for Fort Campbell Kentucky


City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – In response to the Army’s recent Supplemental Programmatic Environmental Assessment (SPEA), Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan, joined by Montgomery County Mayor Carolyn Bowers and Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Melinda Shepard, sent public comments on behalf of Clarksville-Montgomery County describing the significant impact a troop reduction could have on the community.

“For the last two months, we have been working on this project virtually nonstop,” said Mayor McMillan. “Our community’s response has been a true team effort. We have received support and information from the Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Development team, the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System, Austin Peay State University, the Regional Planning Commission and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce.”

“We have talked with Representative Joe Pitts, Representative Curtis Johnson, Congressman Marsha Blackburn and representatives from Senator Bob Corker’s office and the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Foreign Relations,” stated Mayor McMillan. “While we could not put into words the value each and every soldier brings to our community, we have attempted to address the economic impact a troop reduction would have on Clarksville, Montgomery County and all of Middle Tennessee.””

“I also want to thank everyone who wrote letters in support of Fort Campbell. We have heard from the recipients and know that these letters are emphasizing the importance of the installation to our citizens. We believe the letters are making a difference,” said the Mayor.

The next step in the process will be a listening tour where additional comments may be invited. The City has not yet received the date or location for the listening tour.
