Clarksville-Montgomery County is a community experiencing a tremendous amount of growth and progress. Over the next 24 months, many exciting events will take place. A new attraction will be added to the downtown landscape with the addition of a riverfront marina. The current Fairgrounds Park and marina area will feature boat slips, boat storage, an extended RiverWalk, an amphitheatre, park amenities, future retail and dining establishments, and much more.
The community continues to build more schools with the addition of new households. Rossview Elementary School opened in fall of 2009 and completed the three school complex off of Rossview Road. Land has been purchased for an additional three school complex in the northeast part of the county and an additional elementary school in the Sango area.
Rails-to-Trails was further enhanced in the community during the past year with the addition of a three-mile stretch of walking and biking trails. This trail can be reached via Pollard Road and will eventually connect with the RiverWalk trail. The City of Clarksville and area businesses made the trail extension possible for residents of the community to enjoy in the coming years.
Hemlock Semiconductor Group announced their decision to locate a new polysilicon production facility in Montgomery County in December 2008. Austin Peay State University has been an avid partner in this project. Through funding from the State of Tennessee, APSU is constructing a new lab facility on campus to house a two-year degree program in chemical engineering processing.
