The Town of Clarksville’s Economic Development Department is responsible for implementing projects and programs to encourage economic development within the Town. The primary goals of the redevelopment department are to help support the local community by planning and funding infrastructure improvements, encouraging redevelopment through private and public partnerships, and utilizing planning tools and financial strategies to implement project and program opportunities. The department falls under the authority of the Clarksville 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 provide a resource for improvements in the area and allow infrastructure projects that might not be possible with general funds. Five members serve on this Commission, two selected by the council and three appointed by the Council President.
