Clarksville City Councilperson Karen Reynolds – Ward 9 Newsletter, November 1st

Written by Karen Reynolds
Clarksville City Council Ward 9

City of Clarksville - Ward 9Clarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville is requesting input for the CTS Transit Center Relocation and the Frosty Morn building.

Your input is very important. Your responses will help ensure that your recommendations are heard and understood. Not having enough respondents will leave the City unable to determine the view of various community members throughout the City.

Therefore, your responses are critical in ensuring that the City has the best information possible when developing the Frosty Morn – Rebuilding for All! project plans and selecting a new site for the transit center.

In case you all weren’t aware, our City was one of three cities in the nation to win a spot in the Mayor Innovative Design Cohort for the Frosty Morn building renovation. The Cohort is a national partnership between The American Institute of Architects and the Mayors Innovation Project to help build zero-carbon, resilient, healthy, and equitable cities. So, let’s rebuild Frosty Morn – for All!

Please let me know if your concerns or questions.

Recommendation from RPC: The proposed zoning request is inconsistent with the adopted Land Use Plan and is out of character with the surrounding development pattern. The road frontage/access for the property has encumbered site distance & it is not recommended to increase density under the present conditions.

The developer of this project reached out and I appreciate that they plan to include green space and walkability in the planning.

ORD 30-2021-22 (Postponed October 7th) Amending the official code Title 1, Chapter 2, Section 204 relative to presenting legislation and deliberation of city council members to maximize efficiency Councilperson Holleman PAGE 245

We received the consent agenda at 5:57 the night before the meeting. Even if we perform our Due Diligence, we don’t’ have time to ask all the questions or get all the information. We don’t have time to collaborate with our residents or stake holders.

I think this is unnecessary and punitive, will cause more work for the mayor or add an additional person to the meeting to ensure fair and equitable enforcement of the ordinance.

We voted against this rezoning at our last meeting. The developer indicated they procured a second entrance onto the property which would decrease traffic onto Millswood Drive. They also indicated they would connect with the school for walking to school.
