Redevelopment Commission

The Redevelopment Commission is set up to improve blighted areas within the town. This is done by investigating the causes of blighted areas and combating these causes through promoting the use of land in a manner that serves the interests of the town and its residents. Clarksville has set up a tax increment financing (TIF) district in one of the areas this commission oversees.

The funds from the TIF district provide a resource for improvements in the area that would not be possible but for the infrastructure projects being completed. Five voting members serve on this commission, three selected by the council and three appointed by the council president. A non-voting school board member is also appointed by the council president.

South Clarksville Redevelopment Plan

South Clarksville Redevelopment Plan

The South Clarksville Redevelopment Plan establishes a shared community vision for new development and revitalization in a broadly-defined area extending from the Ohio River to Stansifer Avenue. The Plan identifies a need for community improvements and revitalization in all portions of the 320-acre area. The market analysis conducted for this plan has demonstrated that opportunities for significant private investment and redevelopment should be focused on the riverfront, and on lands in close proximity to the riverfront.

This plan was adopted into the Town of Clarksville's Comprehensive Plan on March 7, 2016 by the Town Council.

Development of Veterans Crossing

Development of Veterans Crossing

The Clarksville Redevelopment Commission selected Hogan Real Estate to purchase and develop Veterans Crossing. Hogan was selected after a long and thorough review process involving staff, members of the Clarksville Redevelopment Commission, and Clarksville Town Council. Negotiations to reach a development agreement and proceed with the sale of the two parcels were finalized on October 26, 2016 when mutual terms were met. Closing on the sale of the property has not yet occurred.

Hogan was one of five qualified respondents for the Veterans Crossing Request for Proposals (RFP), received by the Redevelopment Commission in late May. Hogan's response was denied by the Commission alongside the other four respondents. They were one of two respondents the Commission sought additional information and clarification regarding their development intentions upon concluding the RFP process. Hogan was identified as the preferred developer/development after reviewing the requested information and items of clarification.

Hogan's project will positively impact the established development patterns along Veterans Parkway. The development is planned so that primary commercial buildings and quasi-public space are intentionally pulled towards the road to provide human-scaled street level animation, user interest, and activity between the site and surrounding properties. The existing Municipal Campus driveway will become a signature entrance boulevard by adding various specialty paving materials, street furnishings, on-street parking, accent lighting, and new landscaped areas. Veterans Crossing will be an inviting, first class, pedestrian friendly experience that integrates retail and indoor and outdoor dining options making for an experience unique to the area. The development will stimulate economic activity and generate new employment opportunities within the Town of Clarksville. The proposed development will attract businesses that are new to Clarksville and spur additional private investment within the local community.

Finalized development plans and tenants will be made public when available in 2017. Clarksville resident and visitors can expect to see signs of construction in 2017 as well.
