Wow, what a year! The Clarksville-Montgomery County EDC has seen big changes since July 2018. Our organization saw the hiring of a CEO as well as a few other leadership changes as the long-time Executive Director of the Industrial Development Board, Mike Evans, retired and Frank Tate stepped in. Some people took on new positions within the walls of the EDC and even with a year of transition, we have seen record-breaking numbers in our community. Much of that is directly related to the hard work of the employees who have dedicated themselves to the mission of the Chamber of Commerce, Industrial Development Board and Convention and Visitors Bureau.
What if I told you right now, we plan to bring in a new company that will continually add $26.9 million into our local payroll every single month?
Here we sit in one of the most ideal situations we could hope for when it comes to the advancement of Clarksville - Montgomery County. One of the main entrances to our Downtown is now for sale and ready to transform an area of town that needs a serious facelift.
It is being proposed that our community gain an amazing, revenue-inducing destination, that the Economic Development Council can promote to potential community investors, with minimum to no burden on the existing property tax rate.
