The Clarksville-Montgomery County Regional Historic Zoning Commission was established in order that appropriate measures may be taken to ensure protection and preservation of structures of historical value to the Clarksville-Montgomery County area. The creation of the commission allows for a review process to protect the historic and/or architectural value of buildings or other structures within its jurisdiction. The Commission can recommend to the City Council and the County Commission the establishment of historic districts in an effort to protect the historic buildings or other structures from encroachment of surrounding uses which diminish or lessen their significance. 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:
- Stabilize and improve property values
- Foster civic beauty
- Strengthen the local economy
- Promote the use of historic district for the education, pleasure and welfare of the present and future citizens of Clarksville and Montgomery County
The ultimate goal of the Commission is to make the public aware of the value of the historic building stock of the local area.
