Clarksville City Council – Ward 1
Clarksville, TN – On September 30th, the Clarksville City Council held its monthly executive meeting to review the agenda for October’s regular session. The executive meeting agenda includes a list of issues the City Council will be voting for/against during the next regular session on October 7th.
This month there is a large number of re-zoning requests. While there are none in Ward 1, there are a few along the roads that Ward 1 residents travel getting in and out of the ward. I would like to draw your attention to a few that may have the biggest impact on our part of the city.
These four re-zoning requests represent the possible future addition of up to four new multi-family housing developments in the area of Tiny Town Road and Needmore Road. You can view each of the rezoning applications along with the comments from the different city departments and staff recommendations by clicking the Agenda button below.
Ordinance 24-2021-22 – Rezoning property at the corner of Tiny Town Road and Needmore Road from C-5 to C-2. The developer is asking for the zoning change to allow the use of some of the Tiny Town Road frontage for commercial businesses while using the back of the property for multi-family development.
