Clarksville City Council – Ward 9

City of Clarksville - Ward 9Clarksville, TN – Voter turnout for the August 4th, 2022 election was a disappointing 12%. I continue to receive emails regarding our growth, urging the council to manage the infrastructure as we grow.

I also receive notes from residents outside Ward 9 because their elected City Councilperson does not support the vision of the community. I remind the residents, that you are literally responsible for hiring and firing us, YOUR VOTE Matters.

There will be 7 city council positions on the ballot in November, please vote.

These lots are across from the Housing unit.  The units on Caldwell do not have assigned parking. I visited the area at 4:30pm and the road was lined on both sides with vehicles. Parking will be an issue and the road should be developed or parking added to the housing units.
 
I have contacted the Director of Operations and the Director and Consultant at the Clarksville Housing Authority. I expressed my concerns for the zoning ordinances and asked for their input.

North Clarksville Rec – Ordinance 79-2020-21
Passed I voted:  NO
 
I voted against this resolution, the infrastructure on Needmore Road needs to catch up before additional rooftops are added.  I drove to this area and the building on this property will lock the school into one size. In 2002 – The city council passed a resolution to purchase a portion of this property for a North Clarksville Recreation Center. 
 
I addressed this at the meeting, the Mayor indicated that the ordinance did not specifically state this property. The intent was clear, lesson learned for me. This resolution was not withdrawn.  I have several emails from residents and plan to explore this issue further.
 
I contacted Commissioner Rasnic, we are exploring options for this property.
