Clarksville, TN – Third generation real estate professional Eric Huneycutt is unashamedly enthusiastic about downtown Clarksville. And, he is proving the adage that enthusiasm is contagious.
His passion for downtown appears to be shared by millennial generation professionals who want convenience and easy access to work, services, and amenities like local restaurants, entertainment and recreation.
Clarksville, TN – Beginning next Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, the Clarksville Parking Authority will begin installation of new parking meters which will result in several new parking options for downtown visitors.
Each parking stall will be outfitted with a sensor that automatically resets when a car is parked in that space. The meters are set to offer the first hour of parking at no cost. The maximum time allowed in any parking stall will be three hours. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville City Council met on a very cold Thursday evening regular session on February 6th. Once again the agenda was rather light.
Ordinance 44 (Parking Meters): The council approved on first reading, the purchase of new parking meters that can use credit cards and a sensor system that detects when a car has arrived or departed for payment/tracking purposes. There will be one hour free parking at these meters with a three-hour limit on parking. I voted yes and the measure passed with no dissenting votes. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – Here are the rest of the items of note regarding Thursday’s (August 1st) regular council session.
Ordinance 6 (Transferring the funding of the director position of the Two Rivers Company (TRC) from control of the TRC to the city)
There was discussion as to why the TRC would want to give up full control of the position at the time when the city had fully funded the requirement and provided funding up to the amount of $350,000 for programs and projects. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – This could be an interesting council session.
The mayor wants the council to approve borrowing $325,000 for an excursion boat project. As of last Thursday neither we, nor the mayor, had any idea what it may involve and even if the city will do the project.
We may not need $120,000 we borrowed last year to buy land for the new fire station in the Exit 1 area if a land donation comes through. However, the mayor wants the council to approve borrowing $1.44 million to build that new fire station before we see if we could save $120,000 in loan costs. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police – In my June 9th report I mentioned that I tried to add 8 police officer positions for 2014 (4 in the 3rd qtr./4 in the 4th qtr.). That effort failed in a 6-6 tie vote in which Mayor McMillan voted “no” to kill the amendment.
It initially appeared the cost might have made a possible vote difference at almost $228,000 to add these officers. I made another effort to add officers by requesting five (5) positions in the 4th qtr. of the 2014 budget. The cost was reduced by almost half to $115,070 and I hoped that might sway a vote for support. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Downtown and Riverfront area Market Analysis and Strategy presentation at City Council Chambers June 26th
Clarksville, TN – On Wednesday, June 26th, 2013, a meeting sponsored by Two Rivers Company (TRC) will occur at 6:00pm in the Clarksville City Council Chambers in Downtown Clarksville.
Clarksville, TN – I don’t know if there is a Guinness Book record for long council meetings, but I believe we would qualify after Thursday’s regular session. The meeting started at 6:55om Thursday and ended about 2:20am Friday morning.
Things started mild enough, then got feisty and progressed downhill to the point that at the end of the meeting Councilman James Lewis stormed over to Councilman David Allen as they were leaving and said he would see him outside. Police were requested to go outside to ensure the situation did not turn into a knock down and drag out affair.
So basically, it was a regular night at the Clarksville City Council. «Read the rest of this article»
