An important Message from The Town of Clarksville / Redevelopment

 

Dear Residents of Clarksville,

 

On Thursday, March 12th, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced that the state was taking new steps to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. One recommended prevention measure was to limit non-essential gatherings.

 

There is no higher priority to us than the safety of our community’s citizens, employees, and visitors. In an effort to do our part in protecting our residents, the Town of Clarksville has made the decision to cancel the March 16th Public Information Session for the 3C Master Plan. A new date for the public meeting has not been set.

 

The public is encouraged to continue to reference the project website at www.3cmasterplan.com for updates.

 

Thank you for your patience and support to the Town of Clarksville. We will keep you updated through this dynamic situation.

 

Sincerely,

Dylan Fisher

Redevelopment Director

About the Plan

The central Clarksville area, including the Lewis and Clark Parkway and Broadway District, is comprised of 600 acres of primarily commercial land. The district includes two commercial corridors and two regional shopping malls, with much of the area adjacent to Interstate 65. To allow for this kind of development, most of the land is currently zoned B2 – large format commercial businesses – and Veterans Parkway Corridor Zone (VPCZ) – retail commercial focused with form-based development standards. The district also includes several smaller neighborhood commercial developments and both single family and multi-family housing.

The Catapult Central Clarksville (3C) Master Plan will outline a vision for strengthening the function, appearance, and economic potential of the central Clarksville area. It will establish a series of recommendations to transform the auto-oriented commercial district into a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use destination. The plan will create a framework for redevelopment and infill projects that capitalize on existing district assets while increasing residential density, improving walkability, and creating active community amenities. While this is not a transportation plan, opportunities to support the Town’s complete streets policy with additional multi-modal facilities and safety improvements will be explored.

The project is divided into a four-stage process which will include data collection; development plan alternatives; master plan implementation strategies; and final plan drafting. Throughout the process, there will be a number of public engagement opportunities and committee meetings to better gauge the community’s desires, needs, and concerns. These meetings are also an opportunity for the consultant team to review recommendations and revise the plan as it is crafted. The final document will provide a detailed master plan; phasing program; funding sources and strategies; market and financial analyses; and implementation strategies.

 

Online Community Workshop

The first public open house was held on January 13, 2020 as a part of the Catapult Central Clarksville (3C) Master Plan. To assist with the 3C Master Plan, citizens were invited to attend the open house and take part in discussions and decisions that will help shape the future of Central Clarksville. Citizens were able to identify community assets, issues, and opportunities and establish the vision that will guide plan recommendations. For those who were not able to attend the open house in person, we created an online survey that replicates the activities and questions asked at the open house event.

Thank you for your participation in this online survey.
