A special non-voting, informational session of the Clarksville City Council is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 2, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in Council Chambers, 106 Public Square.
The purpose of this meeting, called by Mayor Joe Pitts, is to routinely inform and update the council and constituents on various aspects of the Mayor’s Transportation 2020+ plan for street, sidewalk and traffic signalization improvements throughout the city.
David Smith, Interim Director of the Clarksville Street Department, will guide the council through a broad overview of the progress on Transportation 2020+.
At the end of the presentation, there will be an opportunity for council members to ask any questions they might have about the city’s focused initiative to improve safety and enhance mobility.
“We are proud to share that, as promised, significant headway has been, and continues to be made throughout Clarksville on many of the road, sidewalk and signalization projects that are outlined in our bold and aggressive Transportation 2020+ strategic document,” Mayor Pitts said.
“This meeting will enable the city council, and the entire community, to gain insight on the great progress that is occurring,” he said.
Since many of Clarksville’s major thoroughfares are state highways, the City has also worked closely with Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) officials to understand where, how, and when State Routes will be improved. This sub-topic will also be one part of the Oct. 2 presentation, along with grant funding initiatives.
As with all council meetings, the special council session will be livestreamed and recorded on YouTube, and posted prominently on the City’s website and Facebook page.
Council members and constituents will be provided information during the presentation on how to submit questions and suggestions about the Transportation 2020+ plan.
