Clarksville City Council – Ward 9

City of Clarksville - Ward 9

Clarksville, TN – Our meeting on Thursday included several rezoning ordinances, they are listed below.

In new business, there is an eminent domain ordinance that is necessary to build the Spring Creek Parkway. This project has been proposed for many years and now the city has funding and we must move fences and purchase property to widen the road.  
The government can only acquire private lands if it is reasonably shown that the property is to be used for public purposes only.
Building the parkway and acquiring the property were previously approved by the city council and are listed on the Traffic 2020 Plan. 
This parkway will relieve traffic on Wilma Rudolph.  Please review the ordinance in New Business and share your concerns or support for this project.
