Public Notice: City of Clarksville applies for FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funding

The City of Clarksville has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) funding through the Tennessee Emergency Management (TEMA) as a sub-recipient. 


Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives to and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).


Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.


Location of Proposed Work: Within Clarksville-Montgomery County at the following locations:

  1. Kleeman Community Center - 166 Cunningham Lane

  2. Crow Community Center - 211 Richview Road

  3. Fire Station 3 - 112 Maxwell Drive

  4. Fire Station 4 - 1550 New Ashland City Road

  5. Fire Station 5 - 111 Stephanie Drive

  6. Fire Station 6 - 8 Ashbury Road

  7. Fire Station 9 - 259 Holiday Drive

  8. Fire Station 10 - 1591 Needmore Road

  9. South Clarksville Water Treatment Plant - 1040 Pumping Station Road


Proposed Work: Installing generators at each of the above listed locations to provide continuous support for the community during disasters. 


Alternative Actions

  1. No Action - taking no action would result in two community centers being unable to serve as emergency shelters during power loss. Additionally, it would cause the generators at the fire stations to continue past their existing useful life, which would result in additional maintenance costs and/or discontinued use resulting in power loss for our first responders. Not placing a generator at the South Clarksville water treatment plant would result in low to no water pressure and/or boil notices in the event of a long term power outage.

  2. Alternative Action #1 - this action would result in creating a plan to replace and/or install generators as needed utilizing local taxpayer (or utility rate payer) funding. This would not only incur additional costs, but would result in delayed placement.



Comment Period: Comments are solicited from the public: local, state or federal agencies; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed projects. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to the City of Clarksville. All comments are due within 30 days of this notice. The City of Clarksville will forward comments to applicable regulatory agencies as needed. 


Interested persons may submit comments, obtain more detailed information about the proposed action, or request a copy of the findings by contacting Lauren Winters at lauren.winters@cityofclarksville.com.
