Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts has called two special sessions this month:
Tuesday, October 5th at 4:30pm to discuss the settlement of the Blackhorse Lawsuit.
Wednesday, October 20th at 4:30pm – this will be a working session and they will present the proposed rezoning of the City Wards based on the 2020 Census.
I met with members of the Tanglewood neighborhood in September regarding a zoning request, I would be happy to meet if you have questions or concerns. Speaking of Zoning Ordinances, I am going to make a change to the newsletter. I will add the Zones at the top of the list to save space and hopefully make the letter easier to read.
As always, please contact me if you have questions or concerns. I only answer calls that are in my contact list, please leave a message or send a quick text and I will call you back.
We vote on the items on this agenda on October 7th, 2021, meeting starts at 6:00pm.
