The Common Design Review Board was established in 2016 by the Clarksville City Council. It was established to issue Certificates of Appropriateness to nonresidential and multiple family improvement projects within the Madison Street Corridor Urban Design Overlay District and the Downtown Urban Design Overlay District (known as the Central Business Improvement District).
The Regional Historic Zoning Commission was established to ensure protection and preservation of structures of historical value to the Clarksville and Montgomery County area. The Commission has the authority to establish design guidelines to regulate exterior design, arrangement, texture, and materials proposed to be used within the historic districts to ensure compatibility, as well as, to create an aesthetic appearance which complements the historic buildings or other structures. Activities carried out by the Commission are in an effort to:
1) Stabilize and improve property values,
2) Foster civic beauty,
3) Strengthen the local economy, and
4) Promote the use of historic district for the education, pleasure and welfare of the present and future citizens of Clarksville and Montgomery County.
