>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MADAM CLERK.

[00:10:02]

MAYOR, I MOVE WE GO BACK INTO PUBLIC HEARING.

>> SECOND. >> MAYOR: MOTION HAS BEEN MADE TO GO INTO PUBLIC HEARING TO HEAR THEE ZONING CASES.

PROPERLY SECONDED WITHOUT OBJECTION.

WE ARE IN PUBLIC HEARING. FIRST ITEM IS ORDINANCE 101-2022-22. ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE TO SPEAK FOR OR ANSWER? ITEM 109-2021-22.

ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS ORDINANCE? IF YOU WOULD, GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, YOU HAVE FIVE

MINUTES. >> SHAWN BARNER, CLARKSVILLE.

I'M HERE TO, AS THE AGENT, TO REZONE OR REQUEST REZONING FROM R3 TO R6. THAT LOT IS ON GRACIE AVENUE, AS YOU HAVE SEEN, AND WE ARE REQUESTING THAT IT BECOME TWO LOTS. I HAVE THE PRODUCT WE WILL BUILD ON THOSE LOTS IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT AS WELL.

>> MAYOR: ANY QUESTIONS OF MR. BARNER.

COUNCILPERSON MARQUIS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I BELIEVE LAST WEEK IT WAS STATED THIS WAS GOING TO BE AFFORDABLE HOUSING OPTION. COULD YOU EXPLAIN THAT A LITTLE

BIT OR WHAT YOUR PLAN IS. >> YES, SO, OF COURSE, AS ALL OF THESE R6 COME FORWARD, I THINK IT IS FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR TRYING TO CREATE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

TAKING A LARGER LOT AND BREAKING IT UP MAKES IT MORE AFFORDABLE AS WELL. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PRODUCT THAT I HAVE THERE WHICH WE HAVE BUILT SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT, THAT'S WHAT WE PROPOSE TO BUILD HERE AS WELL.

THIS LOT RIGHT NOW IS 160 FEET DEEP.

I KNOW I HAVE SEEN THAT IN THE PAST, THE QUESTION OF THE YARD SIZE AND SO FORTH. SO YOU ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO GET A REALLY -- EXCUSE ME, VERY LARGE BACKYARD BASED ON THE SETBACKS AND FOOTPRINT OF THE HOUSE AND SO FORTH.

SO I DON'T THINK IT IS UNUSUAL FOR THE AREA IN TERMS OF WHAT WE ARE BUILDING AND DEFINITELY NOT FOR THE LOT SIZE THAT WILL BE

CREATED IF IT IS REZONED. >> OKAY, AND IT IS GOING TO BE

TWO HOMES. >> TWO HOMES, YES.

AND THE FRONT ELEVATION WOULD SLIGHTLY DIFFER JUST SO THEY ARE

NOT EXACTLY THE SAME. >> OKAY.

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU, COUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THEY WILL SELL FOR

APPROXIMATELY? >> I WISH I COULD TELL YOU.

THE COST OF MATERIALS CHANGES LITERALLY DAILY AND SO HOPEFULLY LUMBER AND ALL THOSE THINGS GO DOWN BY THE TIME WE DO THIS.

BUT HOPEFULLY WE ARE IN A 200,000-DOLLAR RANGE, SOMEWHERE

IN THERE. >> OKAY.

>> MAYOR: COULD YOU PLEASE SMITH, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU FOR PRESENTING THIS.

YOU DIDN'T GET THIS OFF OF GOOGLE AND BROUGHT IT TO US?

>> NO, WE ACTUALLY -- WE ARE BUILDING SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT CURRENTLY. BUT THAT'S THE PRODUCT.

>> HOW MANY BEDROOMS. >> THREE.

>> THREE BEDROOMS. YOU DO KNOW THAT THERE ARE ACCESSORIES OR AMENITIES THAT CAN BE PUT ON THIS LOT WHEN YOU

BUILD THIS HOME, RIGHT? >> EXCUSE ME?

>> NO ACCESSORIES. >> SUCH AS IN.

>> NO POOLS, NO PLAYGROUNDS, NO CHURCHES, NOTHING CAN BE PUT ON

R6. >> YES.

>> OTHER THAN SINGLE FAMILY. >> I'M SAYING THE FAMILY CAN BE THERE, THERE ARE NO ACCESSORIES FOR CHILDREN.

SO, YOU KNOW, CHILDREN DO NEED A PLACE TO PLAY TO LET GO OF SOME OF THEIR ENERGY. WE DO NEED TO ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN. I KNOW THIS IS NOT YOUR -- I KNOW YOU WANT R6, BECAUSE YOU CAN PUT TWO ON THERE.

I'M NOT AGAINST THIS. BUT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE UNDERSTAND THIS PARTICULAR ZONE THAT THE CHILDREN, IF YOU DON'T PUT A FAMILY IN THERE WITH CHILDREN, THEY NEED SOMEPLACE TO

PLAY. >> THE LOCATION OF THIS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE SCHOOL THERE WHERE THERE IS A

PLAYGROUND. >> R6 ZONE DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO HAVE PLAYGROUNDS, POOLS ANYTHING THAT WOULD ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN.

I JUST WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

>> OKAY. >> YES.

>> SO PICKING R6 ZONE JUST TO PUT TWO OR THREE HOUSES ON A SMALL LOT IS REALLY NOT A GOOD IDEA FOR CHILDREN.

[00:15:02]

FAMILIES WITH -- PARENTS WITH -- SINGLE PARENTS WITH CHILDREN.

SO WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE KNOW THIS.

I KNOW SOME PEOPLE ARE ABOUT MAKING MONEY BUT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE KNOW THAT R6 ZONING DOES NOT ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN THERE ARE OTHER ZONES THAT ARE BETTER.

LIKE R2A. >> RIGHT.

>> R3. >> SOMETHING IS BETTER BECAUSE IF IT IS GOING TO BE IN A NEIGHBORHOOD WHERE THERE ARE HOMES, HOW DO YOU THINK CHILDREN WOULD FEEL? THEY CAN'T HAVE A POOL OR HAVE A PLAYGROUND.

THE HOUSE LOOKS GOOD. I APPRECIATE YOU WANTING TO MAKE AFFORDABLE HOUSING. THIS IS GREAT THING.

BUT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE ACCOMMODATE THE CHILDREN.

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON ALLEN.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THERE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL COME BEFORE US THAT WILL CHANGE THAT. WELL BEFORE YOU START BUILDING,

SIR. >> THE LOT SIZE, ESPECIALLY THE BACKYARD, THAT HAS BEEN A CONCERN, WATCHING SOME OF THE ZONING HEARINGS AND SO FORTH. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE ALMOST HUNDRED FOOT BACKYARD, WHICH IS VERY LARGE, EVEN COMPARISON TO MOST NEIGHBORHOODS BEING BUILT TODAY OUTSIDE OF -- WELL, JUST

ALL AROUND THE COUNTY. >> COUNCILPERSON: HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET THAT IN FRONT OF US BEFORE YOU START BUILDING OR IF

YOU GET APPROVED TODAY. >> OKAY.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON SMITH, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR, MAYBE YOU CAN TALK WITH SOMEONE AT THE PLANNING COMMISSION, THEY CAN AMEND THIS ZONING TYPE OR STYLE, WHATEVER THEY WANT TO CALL IT, AND, YOU KNOW, MAYBE GO AHEAD AND ALLOW THIS TO BE PUT IN THE ZONING LAW, OKAY, BECAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY NEED.

I'M JUST LOOKING OUT FOR THE CHILDREN AND FOR FAMILIES.

IF WE DON'T DO SOMETHING, LET US DO IT RIGHT.

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELSE HAVE QUESTIONS FOR MR. BARNER? SEEING NONE, THANK YOU, SIR.

ANYONE ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF 109? ANYONE WHICH TO SPEAK AGAINST 109.

PLEASE COME FORWARD. GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS,

YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES. >> HI, I'M SUSAN HARRINGTON AND I LIVE AT 754 GRACEY AVENUE, WHICH IS JUST TWO LOTS OVER FROM THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY. AND I AM KIND OF REPRESENTING THE NEIGHBORHOOD:NO ONE ELSE COULD COME TONIGHT.

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST AFFORDABLE HOUSING, NOT AT ALL.

BUT I HAVE A HUNDRED-YEAR-OLD HOUSE THAT I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY RESTORING FOR 32 YEARS. AND IT IS MY FAMILY HOME AND THIS IS JUST TWO LOTS AWAY AND I'M JUST CONCERNED ABOUT HOW IS IT GOING TO FIT INTO THE FEEL OF THE ENVIRONMENT WITH ALL THESE OLDER HOMES AND I'M SURE YOU ARE VERY WELL AWARE, TOO, ON CROSSLAND AND GREENWOOD, A LOT OF THOSE OLD HOMES ARE BEING RESTORED. THE BONES ARE GOOD AND THEY ARE MAKING THEM LOOK FANTASTIC. THESE ARE THE OLDER HOMES THAT KIND OF FIT INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

BUT AS I WAS TALKING WITH MY NEIGHBORS THAT SURROUND THIS, WE HATTED HAD A COUPLE OF CONCERNS. EVEN THOUGH THIS LOT COULD HAVE TWO HOMES ON IT, WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT PARKING.

THERE'S NOT A LOT OF PARKING OVER THERE AND IT IS AN AVENUE, SO IT IS WIDER. BUT WE WERE CONCERNED ABOUT CARS THAT MIGHT HAVE TO PARK OUT ON THE STREET AND KIND OF DISTURB THE FLOW AND AS MISS SMITH SAID, THE CHILDREN THAT WALK BACK AND FORTH THROUGH NORMAM SMITH, THEY HAVE TO BE RIGHT BY THAT WHERE THE CARS AND TRAFFIC MIGHT BE. WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT HOW IT MIGHT AFFECT OUR PROPERTY VALUES AND I HAVE LIVED THERE 32 YEARS.

I LOVE IT. I LOVE MY HOUSE.

SO WE ALSO TALKED ABOUT JUST GENERAL NEIGHBORHOOD PROTECTION AND SO WE WERE LOOKING AT WOULD THIS PROPERTY, OF COURSE, I DIDN'T SEE THE DOCUMENT, THE PICTURE THAT -- MAY I SEE THAT? OKAY, I SEE FROM THIS DESIGN THERE IS A PERIMETER WALL THAT LOOKS LIKE IT IS BUILT AROUND THE BACK END OF THE HOME AND THEN ON EITHER SIDE. WELL, THE HOME THAT IS CLOSEST TO THIS PARTICULAR LOT, AND I HAVE SEEN WHERE THEY HAVE MARKED

[00:20:03]

IT AND SURVEYED IT, -- >> MISS HARRINGTON, IF I COULD GET YOU TO GET TO THE MICROPHONE SO FOLKS AT HOME CAN HEAR YOU.

>> I WANTED TO DEMONSTRATE WHERE THE STAKES WERE PUT IS NOT ANY FURTHER FROM THAT DESK TO ABOUT HERE WHERE THE NEIGHBORS PORCH IS. SO THE NEIGHBORS THAT ARE RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THIS PROPERTY, THAT'S THE ONLY SPACE THEY HAVE.

SO WE WERE WORRIED ABOUT PERIMETER WALLS THERE.

WE ARE ALSO WORRIED ABOUT PARKING LOT DRAINAGE BECAUSE HE DID TALK ABOUT, THERE WAS A HUNDRED FOOT BACKYARD BUT THERE'S A DRAINAGE PROBLEM IN THE BACK OF THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY. WE WERE WORRIED WHERE THAT DRAINAGE MIGHT GO. AND THEN IS IT GOING TO BE LANDSCAPED IN A MANNER THAT IS SIMILAR TO OUR BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBORHOOD, OUR OLD NEIGHBORHOOD? AND SO WE WERE JUST CONCERNED ABOUT PRESERVING OUR RESIDENTIAL CHARACTER OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. SO I JUST WANTED TO SPEAK ON

THOSE PARTICULAR POINTS. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU, MISS HARRINGTON, ANY QUESTIONS FOR MISS HARRINGTON.

COUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS. >> DO YOU KNOW WHAT WAS THERE

BEFORE? >> I HAVE BEEN THERE 32 YEARS AND THERE WASNER ANYTHING THERE. I HEARD FROM A NEIGHBOR THAT THERE WAS A HOUSE THERE. BUT I HAVE BEEN THERE 32 YEARS.

>> THE HOMES SURROUNDING THIS, ARE THEY BRICK OR IS IT A MIX?

>> NO, THEY ARE -- THEY ARE NOT BRICK.

THEY HAVE GOT THE SIDING. SO THEY ARE A LITTLE BIT OLDER HOMES AND ACROSS THE STREET AS WELL.

SOME OLDER HOMES AS WELL. >> THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON RICHMOND, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> THANK YOU, MAYOR. DID THE NEIGHBORS SHOW UP TO THE

PUBLIC HEARING MEETING? >> NO, AND I WAS OUT OF TOWN.

SO THIS IS MY FIRST ADVENTURE HERE.

>> COUNCILPERSON: WELCOME. >> I'M VERY IMPRESSED OF HOW THIS WORKS. I WASN'T AWARE OF THE RULES AND THE PRACTICE. SO I TALKED TO A COUPLE OF FOLKS TODAY AND FOUND OUT WHAT THE PROCEDURE WAS.

I'M GOING TO ENCOURAGE MY NEIGHBORS WHO COULD NOT ATTEND TONIGHT TO WRITE LETTERS AS WELL.

I'M SORRY, I JUST WASN'T AWARE OF THE PROCESS.

>> COUNCILPERSON: AND DO YOU KNOW IF ANY OTHER NEIGHBORS WERE

PRESENT AT THE MEETING? >> NO.

WE ARE JUST A B BUNCH OF OLD FOS THAT LIVE THERE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME ANYTHING LIKE THIS HAS HAPPENED IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. WE WEREN'T AWARE.

>> COUNCILPERSON: CLARKSVILLE IS GROWING, MISS HARRINGTON, THERE ARE TONS OF CONVERSATIONS LIKE THIS.

>> I'M NOT AGAINST AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

OUR NEIGHBORHOOD HAS AN HISTORIC NEIGHBORLY FEEL.

I DON'T THINK THIS TYPE OF STRUCTURE -- IT IS NOT CONGRUENT

WITH THE OTHER HOMES. >> COUNCILPERSON: I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU, MISS HARRINGTON, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CARE AND CONCERN. I WOULD INVITE YOU TO CONTINUE THE CONVERSATION WITH THE STREET DEPARTMENT, WITH PARKING AND THOSE SORT OF THINGS. WE DO TH THANK YOU FOR THE INFORMATION YOU BRING US AS WELL.

I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THERE ARE VOICES BEYOND TONIGHT, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, WHERE YOU CAN GET YOUR CONCERNS MET AND.

THE STREET DEPARTMENT IS AMAZING.

THEY CAN ADDRESS THOSE CONCERNS AS WELL.

AND CONVERSATIONS WITH PLANNING COMMISSION AND YOU ALL CAN CONTINUE TO GO TO THOSE MEETINGS.

THANK YOU. >> THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COULD YOU PLEASECOUNC, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR, THANK YOU, MISS HARRINGTON, FOR SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF YOUR COMMUNITY.

YOU ARE PLEASED TO KNOW THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE APARTMENTS,

THAT'S A GOOD THING. >> YES.

>> COUNCILPERSON: IF THEY ARE GOING TO BE HOMES.

AND THIS IS PRETTY GOOD. >> YEAH, BUT IT JUST DOESN'T MATCH THE FEEL AND THE CHARACTER OF THE OTHER HOMES.

>> COUNCILPERSON: I UNDERSTAND. I FEEL THAT.

I FEEL YOUR PAIN. IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GOING TO BE WELL BUILT AND IT HAS A PORCH AND EVERYTHING.

IT LOOKS GOOD. I'M JUST HAPPY THAT THEY ARE NOT TO BE APARTMENTS TO BREAK UP THE UNITY AND PEACE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO BE GLAD ABOUT. WE HAVE TO GET SOME THINGS IRONED OUT. BUT I FEEL YOUR PAIN.

I HEAR YOUR FRUSTRATIONS AND I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE

[00:25:01]

COMING FROM. THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING UP AND BEING AN ADVOCATE FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.

>> THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

STREETMAN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, MISS HARRINGTON, FOR BEING HERE. I DO WANT TO KIND OF POINT OUT, EVEN IF THIS WAS NOT REZONED, THEY COULD STILL BUILD ON PROPERTY. SO THERE COULD STILL BE SOMETHING BUILT THERE THAT YOU WOULD FEEL DIDN'T MATCH WITH YOUR HOME. I WANTED TO POINT THAT OUT.

>> OH, CERTAINLY, I UNDERSTAND THAT.

>> COUNCILPERSON: OKAY. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

REYNOLDS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: YES, YOU KNOW, I WANT TO PICK UP ON WHAT WAS SAID EARLIER.

WE DIDN'T TALK ABOUT THIS WHEN WE SPOKE EARLIER.

IT IS CURRENTLY -- I NOS IT WAST WAS R1.

IT DIDN'T CLICK. IT IS R3.

REALLY THE OPTION THAT IS PRESENTED IS A TRI-PLEX OR TWO INDIVIDUAL HOMES. THAT IS THE OPTION.

SO KNOWING THAT HE COULD EITHER BUILD A TRI-PLEX OR JUST TWO HOMES, DOES THAT CHANGE THE CONVERSATION AT ALL?

I'M JUST ASKING? >> WELL, I'M SURE IT WOULD CHANGE THE CONVERSATION SOME. BUT WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WAS COMING IN BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE ACCESS TO WHAT THE PLANS WERE. I DON'T KNOW IF THE BUILDER WOULD SHARE THAT WITH US OR NOT. WE JUST KNEW THAT SOMETHING WAS GOING TO COME AND BE BUILT THERE AND WE WERE JUST CONCERNED ABOUT

PRESERVING THE NEIGHBORHOOD. >> COUNCILPERSON: AND I RESPECT THAT. SO AGAIN, BASED ON TONIGHT WE HAVE TO VOTE. I'M JUST GOING TO ASK STRAIGHTFORWARD, WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE A TRI-PLEX OR TWO

HOUSES? >> TWO HOUSES.

I THINK MY NEIGHBORHOOD WOULD AGREE TO THAT AS WELL.

>> COUNCILPERSON: OKAY. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELSE HAVE A QUESTION FOR MISS HARRINGTON, SEEING NONE, THANK YOU VERY

MUCH. >> THANK YOU FOR THE

OPPORTUNITY. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELIMINATION WISH TO SPENDS AGAINST ORDINANCE 109.

SEEING NOW, WE WILL ALLOW TIME FOR REBUTTAL.

IF YOU SPOKE IN FAVOR AND WOULD LIKE TO OFFER REBUTTAL, YOU ARE WELCOME TO COME FORWARD. OKAY.

WE ARE NOW READY FOR ITEM 3, OSORDIORDINANCE 110-2021-22, FIT APPLICATION OF JOE A. WINN, JR, JIMMY BAGWELL, AGENT, FOR ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK FOR OR AGAINST? ITEM 4, ORDINANCE 111-2021-22.

>> THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK TONIGHT.

MOST IMPORTANTLY CONCERN IS THE WIDTH OF THE ROAD.

THE TRAFFIC OF THE REZONING WOULD -- THE TRAFFIC THIS REZONING WOULD ADD. THE PROPERTY ALREADY ZONED R2 WHICH ALLOWS THREE OR FOUR SINGLE FAMILIES HOMES DEPENDING ON THE SURVEY. THE PROPERTY ACROSS THE STREET, WHICH I OWN, IS ZONED R3. AS OF RIGHT NOW, THE PROPERTY IS A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENCE AND I PLAN TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.

THAT BEING SAID, I AM ROUGHLY LOOKING TO OBTAIN SIX R6 LOTS OUT OF THIS PROPERTY WILL ALLOW IT TO BE -- WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME EXACT TRAFFIC AS ALREADY ZONED FOR THIS STREET.

THE EXIST ZONING WOULD ALLOW THE SAME TRAFFIC IMPACT IF YOU WILL ALLOW THE ZONING. MY SINGLE FAMILY HOME ACROSS THE STREET, INSTEAD OF TURNING INTO A TRI-PLEX.

ADDITIONALLY, MY PROPERTY ACROSS THE STREET IS ON SEPTIC WHICH I'M HAVING ISSUES WHICH STARTED THIS WHOLE PROCESS.

IT NEEDS TO BE HOOKED TO SEWER. NO SEWER ACCESS ON EASTLAND DRIVE. THIS REZONING WOULD ALLOW ME TO UPGRADE THE CITY SEWER ON EASTLAND DRIVE THROUGH THE LENGTH OF LEESON DRIVE. WITHOUT THE REZONING, IT WOULD NOT BE FINANCIALLY FEASIBLE. WITH THE HOME SHORTAGE IN CLARKSVILLE IS EXPERIENCING, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE USE LAND WE BEST ACCOMMODATE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

THE LAND WOULD REQUIRE -- THIS WOULD REQUIRE THE REZONING TO BE DEVELOPED FOR THIS AFFORDABLE SINGLE FAMILY HOMES.

THE NEIGHBORS I HAVE SPOKEN TO HAVE MANY CONCERNS WITH ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC. I DO NOT DISAGREE THAT EASTLAND DRIVE IS VERY NARROW STREET. I WOULD BE WILLING TO DONATE PORTIONS OF EITHER ONE OF MY PROPERTY TO ALLOW THE STREET DEPARTMENT TO WIDEN THE ROAD IF THEY WISH.

THERE WOULD ONLY BE ONE STREET ACCESS TO THE PROPERTY THROUGH

[00:30:02]

THE PROPERTY, THE ALLEY WHICH -- THERE WOULD BE AN ALLEYWAY WHICH WOULD MINIMIZE TRAFFIC ON THE ROAD.

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK TORCHT.

TONIGHT, I'M HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

>> COUNCILPERSON: YOU MENTIONED BOTH REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION AND TONIGHT, YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO DONATE IT.

IF THE STREET DEPARTMENT WANTS TO WIDEN IT. IT WOULD REQUIRE YOU TO WIDEN THE ROAD AS WELL AS PUT SIDEWALKS IN THERE.

>> SO I UNDERSTAND THE SIDEWALKS IS IN THE R6.

BUT HAVING TO PAY FOR THE SEPTIC TO BE RAN, SEWER TO BE RAN DOWN EASTLAND DRIVE, IT IS NOT FINANCIALLY FEASIBLE FOR ME TO DO BOTH FOR THIS SMALL OF A DEVELOPMENT.

>> COUNCILPERSON: I UNDERSTAND THAT.

I KNOW ALSO THAT, WAS MENTIONED, EVEN STILL, WITH 7 UNITS BEING ADDED, IT WOULD STILL POTENTIALLY ADD MORE TRAFFIC TO IT. SO I KIND OF -- I WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE AWARE OF. IT IS NOT THE THING WHERE YOU COULD CHOOSE TO DONATE. IF THE STREET PUT THAT ON THERE,

IT WOULD BE A REQUIREMENT. >> OKAY.

>> MAYOR: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR MR. MILAM SEEING NONE, THANK YOU, SIR. ANYONE ELIMINATION IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF 111? ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST ORDINANCE 111.

SIR, FULL GIVE US YOUR NAME ANDED DRESS, YOU WILL HAVE FIVE

MINUTES. >> MY NAME IS DAVID GERMAN.

I LIVE AT THE CORNER OF EASTLAND AND SUNSET.

MY PROPERTY JOINS THIS ONE. EASTLAND DRIVE IS A NARROW ONE-LANE STREET. WHEN YOU HOO MEET SOMEONE ON EASTLAND, SOMEONE HAS TO BACK UP OR PULL IN A DRIVEWAY OR DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT IN ORDER TO GET PAST.

IT IS AN ONE-LANE STREET. WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE TRAFFIC ON OUR STREET. I THINK RIGHT NOW WE WERE IN HOLLEMAN'S DISTRICT AND NOW OVER TO WANDA SMITH'S DISTRICT.

FIRM CORRECTLY, MAYOR PITTS, DIDN'T YOU LIVE ON SUNSET.

>> NOT IN MY MEMORY. I'M OLD, SO, YOU KNOW.

>> I HAVE BEEN THERE FOR 50 YEARS.

>> NOT SINCE YOU HAVE BEEN THERE.

>> I HAVE BEEN THERE FOR 50 YEARS.

WE HAVE LIVED THERE A GOOD BIT. BUT TRAFFIC IS A PROBLEM.

AND THERE IS NO SEWER TO THE SITE.

THAT'S THE REASON IT HAS NEVER BEEN BUILT ON.

THERE'S NO SEWER. THE AT THAT POL AT THAT TOPOGRAY GET TWO LATHES. TLOTS.THERE IS NO SEWER.

WE DON'T WANT ANY MORE TRAFFIC ON THAT STREET.

MY MAIN THING IS TRAFFIC. THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU, SIR, ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. GERMAN? SEEING NONE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH ANYONE ELSE AGAINST 111? SEEING NONE, REBUTTAL. READY FOR ITEM 5, 112-2021-22, APPLICATION OF ROBERT W. CLARK, BILL MACE AND TODAY HARVEY.

ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF 112? ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST ORDINANCE 1112.

ITEM 6, 113-2021-22. APPLICATION OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY, ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THIS ORDINANCE? IF YOU WOULD, GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, SIR, YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES.

>> THANK YOU. MY NAME IS SYD HEDRICK, I'M HERE ON BEHALF OF HABITAT FOR HUMANITY.

I'M ON THE BOARD OF HABITAT. I HAVE BEEN ON THE BOARD FOR SEVERAL YEARS. EVEN PRIORITY THAT, I TRIED TO GIVE THEM AS MUCH OF MY TIME AS I COULD.

THERE IS PROPERTY ON RICHARDSON STREET THAT WE WORKED A DEAL OUT WITH THE CITY AND MR. LAMPKIN HELPED WITH US THAT ONE.

THESE PROPERTIES ON D DUMONT DRUUMAS DRIVE.THEY WERE GIVEN TE CITY. IT REMINDS ME OF ALEXANDER DUMAS, A FRENCH WRITER. HE WROTE THE COUNT OF MONTE CHRISTO. THESE LOTS ARE I IMPRISONED BY E NATURE OF THE R3 ZONE. BUT YOU KNOW I THINK THE R6 ZONING, EVEN THOUGH IT DOESN'T CURRENTLY HELP THE CHILDREN,

[00:35:02]

ALTHOUGH THAT IS ON THE BOOKS FOR THAT TO BE AMENDED UNDER A R2A AMENDMENT COMING UP IN THE NEXT MONTH OR SO, THAT LIBERATING ZONING OF THE R6 WOULD TOTALLY RELEASE THE FELTFETTERS AND ALLOW THEM TO BE USED FOR OUR CLIENTELE.

OUR CLIENTELE ARE BEYOND AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

THEY CAN'T AFFORD HOUSING. HABITAT IS ABLE TO HELP THEM GREATLY. I HOPE YOU FOLKS HERE WILL JUST TAKE ALL OF THIS INTO CONSIDERATION AS YOU LOOK AT THIS ZONING. SO HABITAT CAN USE THESE PROPERTIES JUST TO THE HIGHEST AND BEST USE.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU, MR. HEDCIK, IF YOU ARE FROM NEW PROVIDENCE, IT IS DU DUMAS DRIVE. WE WILL GO WITH YOUR INTERPRETATION. COUNCILPERSON SMITH.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU FOR TELLING US WHAT YOU THINK.

I WILL TELL YOU WHAT I THINK. I AM FOR AFFORDABLE HOMES.

I'M FOR FOR BUILDING FOR PEOPLE IN NEED.

R6 FOR THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A WHILE FOR THE HOMES LIKE ON RICHARDSON STREET, 908 TO 916, THEY ARE R6.

SO WE HOPE THAT WE DO GET SOMETHING IN PLACE TO ACCOMMODATE THE CHILDREN BUT ALSO IT BRINGS HIGH DENSITY IN THE AREA. SO WE NEED TO GET THAT ROAD WIDENED. I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH VOTING FOR THIS, ABOUT YOU WE NEED TO GET THE ROAD WIDENED.

I WENT OVER THERE TODAY. I KNOW THE PEOPLE OVER THERE.

SOMEONE IS CONCERNED ABOUT HOW NARROW THE ROAD IS, IT IS VERY NARROW OVER THERE. SO WE HOPE THAT YOU COULD GET THE ROAD WIDENED OVER THERE. BECAUSE IT IS LIKE YOU CAN'T TURN AROUND. I LOOKED AT THE LOT, IT DOES LIKE MIGHTY INTHAWL. SMALL.

HOW MANY HOUSES ARE YOU GOING TO PUT ON THERE.

>> IT IS CURRENTLY THREE LOTS, IT WILL REMAIN THREE LOTS.

JUST AS IT WAS INTENDED FOR USE. >> JUST THREE HOMES.

>> THAT'S CORRECT. >> THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

AND SO WE ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE TO ACCOMMODATE THE CHILDREN.

>> AS SOON AS I CAN. >> I'M LOOKING OUT FOR FAMILY.

>> THIS IS FOR HABITAT FOR HUMANITY, WE WILL BE GLAD TO

TAKE YOUR MONEY. >> HEY, HEY.

>> BUT WE ARE NOT MAKING MONEY. >> IT IS NOT FREE.

THE HOUSE IS NOT FREE. I DON'T CARE IF IT IS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OR WHATEVER. THEY STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE HOUSE. THEY HAVE TO PAY.

>> WE HOPE THEY PAY. >> NOT FREE.

WE DON'T ANYONE TO THINK THE HOUSES ARE FREE.

>> NO MA'AM, THEY ARE NOT. >> THEY DO HAVE TO PAY HOUSE

NOTES. >> OKAY.

THANK YOU. >> COUNCILPERSON BUTLER, YOU ARE

RECOGNIZED. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR, I WANTED TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT I WAS NOT BEING DISRESPECTFUL.

I AM EASILY ENTERTAINED. COUNT OF MONTE CHRISTO IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CLASSICS. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

>> I DID NOT TAKE IT THAT WAY, I APPRECIATE IT.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS.

>> COUNCILPERSON: , YES, HI. I WAS JUST WONDERING LOOKING AT THE ROADS, ARE YOU GOING TO PUT THE ENTRANCE IN THE FRONT OR OFF

OF ELM HILL? >> YES, MA'AM, WE ARE NOT THAT FAR. CURRENTLY THE SETBACKS ON THOSE TWO LOTS ON THE OUTER BAND, YOU HAVE THE ONE ROAD THERE ON ELM HILL, THAT ROAD EXISTS. THERE'S ANOTHER ROAD THAT ACTUALLY DOESN'T EXIST SO BECAUSE OF THAT ROAD, WE WOULD HAVE 30-FOOT SETBACK ON THE BACK AS WELL AS A 30-FOOT SETBACK ON THE SIDE. SAME FOR ELM HILL DRIVE.

350-FOOT LOTS, OFF THE SIDE THAT WOULD TOUCH A ROAD, EVEN THOUGH THERE IS ONE THAT DOESN'T EXIST. THE OTHER SETBACK WOULD BE FIVE FOOT, THESE ARE LOT OF RECORD, SETBACKS FOR LOT OF RECORD ARE FIVE FEET. THAT LEAVES ME 15 FEET WIDE.

HABITAT DOESN'T DO TWO-STORY HOMES -- LET ME REPHRASE.

15-FEET WIDE, WE DO A 15-FOOD WIDE HOUSE.

BUT MOST OF HABITAT'S CLIENTELE ARE HANDICAPPED.

SO WE PRIMARY TRY TO BUILD ONE-LEVEL HOMES FOR THOSE FOLKS AND SO IF WE ARE ABLE TO GET THIS ZONING TODAY, WE WOULD LOWER THE SETBACK TO 20-FOOT SETBACK ON THE SIDE THAT TOUCHES THE ROAD. TWO FRONT SETBACKS.

STILL HAVE A 5-FOOT. IT WOULD ALLOW US TO REPLAT THE LOT IN THE MIDDLE TO PROBABLY 4T SETBACKS.

MOST HOMES ARE 26 OR 28 FEET WIDE.

WE COULD FIT THE SAME SIZE HOME ON THE OTHER SIDE LOTS.

WE WOULD BE ABLE TO PROBABLY BUILD TWO OR THREE BEDROOM HOMES

FOR OUR CLIENTELE. >> THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON ALLEN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: FROM WHETHER OR NOT THIS ZONING PASSES TO HOW LONG DO YOU THINK IT WILL BE BEFORE WE GET FAMILIES INTO

THREE HOMES? >> WE HAVE A WAITING LIST ALMOST OF FAMILIES. SINCE WE HAVE BROUGHT ROB ON AS OUR DIRECTOR, HE IS REALLY PROACTIVE.

NICOLE WORKS WITH HIM. I'M SURE YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH ROB AND NICOLE, THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB FOR HABITAT.

THEY ARE INVALUABLE. THE WAY IT WORKS WITH US IS WE TAKE A CACHE OF LOTS AS WE CAN GET THEM.

WE ALLOW OUR KL CLIENTELE TO SET THEIR SITE.

WE DON'T ASSIGN THEM A SITE. THEY LOOK AT WHATEVER SITES WE HAVE TO CHOOSE FROM AND THEN OUR CLIENTELE CAN CHOOSE.

I WOULD SAY WITH THE -- WE RUN OUT OF SITES.

PEOPLE ARE DOING R6 AND PEOPLE ARE BUILDING LOTS OF STUFF IN TOWN BECAUSE IT IS JUST MORE FINANCIALLY FEASIBLE AND THERE IS SUCH A DEMAND. I WOULD SAY THESE SITES WILL PROBABLY BE SELECTED, I WOULD SAY, WITHIN THE NEXT TWO YEARS

PROBABLY. >> THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? THANK YOU, SIR.

ANYONE ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF 113?

ANYONE AGAINST ORDINANCE 113. >>> ITEM 7.

114-2021-22, AMENDING ZONING ORDINANCE AND MAP OF CITY OF CLARKSVILLE, APPLICATION OF JASON SENSENEY.

ANYONE IN FAVOR AGAINST ORDINANCE 114? ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST 114? ITEM 8, 115-2021-22, APPLICATION OF CODY AND TAYLOR DAHL.

ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF ORDINANCE 115? IF YOU WOULD, GIVE US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS, YOU HAVE FIVE

MINUTES. >> GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS TAYLOR DAHL. ADDRESS IS 3811 SHADY GROVE ROAD IN CLARKSVILLE. THIS IS FOR THE 1118 MADISON STREET PROPERTY. MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE RECENTLY PURCHASED IT. WE WOULD LIKE TO REZONE FROM R4 TO OP, OFFICE PROFESSIONAL, THAT WOULD BE FOR ME FOR MY LAW OFFICE. I GREW UP ACROSS THE STREET AND GLENNWOOD, I'M FAMILIAR WITH THE DOWNTOWN AREA.

I'M SURE MOST OF US GUYS UNDERSTAND THE CORRIDOR, THE THIGHS BIG OLD HISTORIC HOMES ON IT.

IT IS OUR INTENT TO KEEP THE HISTORIC NATURE OF THE HOME, I THINK THAT DOING THIS WITH AN OFFICE IS PROBABLY ITS HIGHEST AND BEST USE. IT HAS BEEN OWNED BY A FAMILY IN RECENT YEARS. IT NEEDS RENOVATION AND A LOT OF WORK. INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR ARE IN NEED OF REPAIR. SO I THINK THAT PROBABLY MAKING IT AN OFFICE IS THE BEST WAY TO GET THAT DONE IN A FINANCIALLY FEASIBLE WAY FOR PEOPLE. IT IS GOING TO BE IN KEEPING WITH THE AREA. BURKE HART BOOKKEEPING ACROSS THE STREET. FINANCIAL DOWN THE STREET.

I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE HAS ANY CONCERNS ABOUT IT.

FOR PARKING, LOW TRAFFIC FOR MY OFFICE.

THERE ARE PARKING SPOTS ON THE SIDE OF IT.

ANY QUESTIONS? >> COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN, YOU

ARE RECOGNIZED. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I THINK YOU TOUCHED ON WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK.

YOU ARE PLANNING ON KEEPING IT ESSENTIALLY ON THE INSIDE THE WAY IT HAS BEEN VERSUS APARTMENTS WHICH WOULD PRETTY MUCH GUT IT AND COMPLETELY CHANGE THE HISTORICAL NATURE OF IT. AND THEN YOU ALSO SAID, I MEAN, YOU PLAN ON RECONDITIONING THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING AND BRINGING IT BACK A LITTLE BIT TO ITS FORMER GLORY?

>> YES, YES. >> SO THE BRICK IS GOING TO STAY THERE. I THINK IT NEEDS ALL NEW WINDOWS. BUT WE WANT TO KEEP IT MAINLY AS

SIMILAR AS POSSIBLE. >> PERFECT, THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> YEAH, HI. I DID REACH OUT TO THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. OTHER PEOPLE HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT THE PARKING. I DID DRIVE BY.

IS THERE GOING TO BE ENOUGH PARKING ON THE SIDE OR ARE YOU GOING TO NEED MORE PARKING FOR YOUR BUSINESS?

>> I DON'T KNOW IF I'M GOING TO NEED MORE PARKING.

IF I AM, THERE IS A LITTLE GRAVEL DRIVE THAT GOES DOWN

AROUND BEHIND. >> MAYBE YOU SHOULD GIVE ME THE KEYS SO I COULD LOOK, GO IN, LOOK IN THE ATTIC.

>> YOU ARE WELCOME TO LOOK. IT IS A REALLY COOL HOUSE.

BUT THERE'S ACTUALLY A LITTLE GRAVEL DRIVE AROUND BACK AND THERE'S A GARAGE. SO I'M THINKING IF I NEED TO DO ANY MORE PARKING FOR EMPLOYEES, IT WOULD BE IN THE REAR.

I DON'T PLAN ON DOING A HUGE PARKING LOT OUT FRONT OR

ANYTHING TERRIBLE LIKE THAT. >> THANK YOU.

>> COUNCILPERSON SMITH, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

DO YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE HISTORICAL COMMISSION?

>> YES. >> HAVE YOU BEEN THROUGH?

>> WE WILL BE IN THE H1 OVERLAY. WE WILL HAVE TO GET ANY CHANGES THAT WE MAKE APPROVED BY THE HISTORICAL COMMISSION, YES.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

[00:45:05]

REYNOLDS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> I WANTED TO GIVE A FOLLOW-UP TO THAT. I DID REACH OUT TO MR. LONG, PRESIDENT OF THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY WHEN I WAS DOING MY RESEARCH OF WHAT WAS BEST FOR THIS PROPERTY.

THIS IS BASICALLY WHAT HE WROTE. HE SAID, THE PARCEL OVER THE LAST COUPLE OWNERS HAS NOT BEEN MAINTAINED AND IT IS TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE HISTORICAL RESIDENCE.

OVERALL, HE REACHED OUT TO THE MEMBERS OF THE HISTORICAL COMMUNITY, SOCIETY, AND THEY FELT THAT TRANSITIONING TO AN OFFICE PROFESSIONAL WOULD PRESERVE THE HOUSE AS OPPOSED TO MAKING IT APARTMENTS. I DO HAVE THAT E-MAIL IF ANYBODY

WANTS TO SEE IT. >> THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? SEEING NONE, THANK YOU. ANYONE ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE WHICH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF ORDINANCE 115? ANYONE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST ORDINANCE 115? NOW READY FOR ITEM 9, ORDINANCE 116-2021-22.

>> MR. HOLLEMAN, ANY QUESTIONS FOR FOR MR. HOLLEMAN.

COCOUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS, YOU AE RECOGNIZED.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE ENTRANCE AND EXIT? NOT ONLY FOR THIS APARTMENT BUILDING OR WHATEVER THAT YOU PUT THERE, BUT FOR BEHIND IT. BECAUSE YOU CAN PUT A LOT OF HOMES BACK THERE AND IT LOOKS KIND OF NARROW IN THE FRONT.

ARE YOU GOING TO TIE IN EVENTUALLY TO THE OTHER

NEIGHBORHOODS? >> THE TERRAIN OF THE PROPERTY ROLLS PRETTY BAD. THERE'S A GAD LINE GOING THROUGH IT. PART OF IT IS UNUSABLE.

THE PROPERTY IS NOT BEING REZONED AS FAR AS THE REST OF THE LAND. JUST SIX ACRES.

AND THE -- SO IT WILL BE DESIGNED TO COME OUT ON HIGHWAY

12, ONE ENTRANCEWAY. >> COUNCILPERSON: OKAY.

I MEANT AS YOU DEVELOP THE REST OF IT.

NOT SO MUCH, ARE YOU GOING TO, LIKE, LEAVE SPACE TO PUT MORE -- MORE THAN ONE ENTRANCE OR EXIT FOR THE PROPERTY BEHIND IT.

I SEE YOU ARE PUTTING THAT RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE.

>> THAT'S THE ENGINEERS WILL DESIGN THAT BASED ON WHAT THE STATE ALLOWS AND HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT.

>> MAYOR: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR MR. HOLLEMAN.

THANK YOU, SIR. ANYONE ELSE IN THE AUDIENCE WISH TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF ORDINANCE 117? ANYONE WISH TO SPEAK AGAINST ORDINANCE 117? THAT CONCLUDES OUR PUBLIC HEARING, COUNCILPERSON

>> MAYOR: OKAY, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: I GET TO MOVE ON.

MAKING SURE. WE DON'T USUALLY DO THAT ONE.

>> MAYOR: WE HAVE A QUESTION, COUNCILPERSON ALLEN?

>> COUNCILPERSON: PREVIOUS COUNCILPERSON, CAN YOU TELL US, LIKE, SO HE CAN GO BACK AND HE CAN REQUEST IN A YEAR OR DOES HE GET TO GO BACK AND REQUEST THAT WE -- HOW DOES THAT WORK?

>> COUNCILPERSON: HE HAS TO WAIT 12 MONTHS FROM THE TIME HE SUBMITTED HIS APPLICATION IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO RESUBMIT -- IN ORDER TO SUBMIT IT AGAIN FOR A ZONING REQUEST.

HOWEVER, HE DOES HAVE THE OPTION OF TALK TO GO A COUNCIL MEMBER, IF THEY SO CHOSE, THEY COULD BRING FORWARD THE REQUEST AN OFFER US THE OPPORTUNITY TO VOTE TO ALLOW HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO

DO IT SOONER THAN THE 12 MONTHS. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU.

ITEM 2, ORDINANCE 109, COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN.

>> ORDINANCE 109-2021-22, FIRST READING,

[00:50:18]

ORDINANCE 109-2021-22, FIRST READING, AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE AND MAP OF THE CITY OF CLARKSVILLE, APPLICATION OF RAYMON SHEPPARD, MID STATE INVESTMENTS, AGENT, FOR ZONE CHANGE ON PROPERTY LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF GRACEY AVENUE AND WOODLAND STREET FROM R-3 THREE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT TO R-6 SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.

STAFF RECOMMENDED APPROVAL. I SO MOVE.

>> PROPERLY MADE A AND SECONDED ORDINANCE 109.

ARE YOU READY TO VOTE? ALL MEMBERS CAST YOUR VOTE.

EVERY MEMBER VOTED. ALL MEMBERS CAST YOUR VOTE. AL L MEMBERS VOTED.

ANY MEMBER WISH TO CHANGE THEI? MADAM CLERK, TAKE THE VOTE.

ORDINANCE 109 IS ADOPTED. COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN ORDINANCE 110-2021-22, FIRST READING, AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE AND MAP OF THE CITY OF CLARKSVILLE, APPLICATION OF JOE A. WINN, JR, JIMMY BAGWELL, AGENT, FOR ZONE CHANGE ON PROPERTY LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF TINY TOWN ROAD AND TOWER DRIVE FROM R-1A SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT TO C-5 HIGHWAY & ARTERIAL COMMERCIAL11 DISTRICT/R-4 MULTIPLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.

>> COUNCILPERSON: REGIONAL PLANNING STAFF AND COMMISSION BOTH RECOMMENDED APPROVAL. I SO MOVE.

>> MAYOR: MOTION HAS BEEN MADE AND PROPERLY SECONDED IN FAVOR OF ORDINANCE 110. COUNCILPERSON ZACHARIAS YOU ARE

RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU.

SO WE ARE ONCE AGAIN BEING ASKED TO CONSIDER INCREASING RESIDENTIAL DENSITY ON TINYTOWNN ROAD.

THERE ARE ALREADY MULTIPLE RESIDENTIAL BUILDING PROJECTS IN PROGRESS ON THE WEST END OF TINY TOWN, LESS THAN QUARTER MILE EAST IS ROUGHLY ANOTHER 500 ACRES VACANT LAND ZONED R2 AND R4. TONIGHT WE ARE GOING ASKED TO VOTE ON AN ORDINANCE THAT WOULD ALLOW THE USE OF THE POWER OF EMINENT DOMAIN TO BUILD THE SPRING CREEK PARKWAY A MILE AWAY. THE QUESTION TO CONSIDER IS THIS: IF THE OVERCROWDING SITUATION IS ALREADY SO BAD THAT WE NEED TO TAKE PEOPLE'S LAND FOR THE SPRING CREEK PARKWAY, WHY WOULD WE VOTE TO ADD ADDITIONAL AT THE TINY TOWN.

IF THIS END OF TINY TOWN CAN SUPPORT ADDITIONAL GROWTH, WHY ARE YOU BEING ASKED TO APPROVE THE TAKING OF LAND FOR THE SPRING CREEK PARKWAY? WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE PROJECTS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN STARTED, THE ONES SURE TO COME AND R2 AND R4 LAND BUT WE DO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PREVENT AN ALREADY BAD SITUATION FROM GETTING WORSE.

I'M ASKING YOU ALL TO VOTE NO ON THIS REZONING ORDINANCE, THANK

YOU. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK REGARDING ORDINANCE 110? COUNCILPERSON ALLEN, YOU ARE

RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: SO I AM THE COUNCILPERSON FOR THIS ZONING AND -- FOR THIS WARD.

AND I HAVE NOT GOTTEN ANY CONSTITUENTS CONTACTING ME IN ANY WAY ABOUT THIS REZONING. DOWN TINY TOWN ROAD, WHAT'S HAPPENING ON TINY TOWN ROAD IS A LOT OF PLACES ARE COMMERCIAL FRONT AND THEN WE HAVE OLD HOUSES THAT ARE ON TINY TOWN ROAD THAT HAS BEEN THERE FOREVER.

SO WITH THIS REZONING, I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS HOUSE SITS THERE BY ITSELF.

BESIDE IT IS COMMERCIAL. THE OTHER WAY, THE FRONT OF IT IS COMMERCIAL. IT IS JUST THIS HOUSE.

AND THE PEOPLE THAT ARE LIVING THERE, THEY ARE GETTING OLDER AND EVERYTHING LIKE THAT. IT IS SIMPLY TIME FOR A CHANGE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS PROPERTY. I'M GOING TO ASK THAT YOU GUYS

VOTE FOR IT. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

REYNOLDS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: YES, I WOULD LIKE TO ADD THAT MY CONCERN IS KIND OF A FOLLOW-UP.

IF YOU FOLLOW THE MAP ON THE LEFT SIDE IS C5 AND THEN IT GOES TO SINGLE FAMILY AND THIS WAS SINGLE FAMILY.

WE ARE, UNFORTUNATELY, AS WE INFILL ON TINY TOWN, WE ARE CREATING THE SAME ISSUE THAT WE HAD FOR TRAFFIC THAT WE SEE ON WILMA RUDOLPH. EVERYONE GETS A DRIVEWAY.

I WOULD LIKE, FROM THE STREET DEPARTMENT, TO HAVE COMMENTS THAT EVENTUALLY I HAVE REACHED OUT TO THE CHIEF OF POLICE, WE NEED SOME ROADS LIKE PARALLEL, ACCESS ROADS, PARALLEL ON TINY TOWN SO EVERYONE WITHIN THESE AREAS DOESN'T GET A DRIVEWAY TO TINY TOWN. OTHERWISE, WE WILL HAVE A DRIVEWAY AFTER DRIVEWAY AFTER DRIVEWAY AS WE DO ON WILMA.

MY CONCERN IS THAT WE ARE NOT -- AS WE INFILL, WE HAVE NOT LEARNED FROM OUR PREVIOUS ISSUES AND RESERVED PROPERTY AS WE APPROVE THESE. I DON'T KNOW THE PROCESS, MAYOR, I DON'T SEE THE COMMENTS AND THAT'S -- I WISH THESE

[00:55:02]

COMMENTS -- I WISH THE COMMENTS FROM OUR STREET DEPARTMENT WOULD BE MORE SPECIFIC. SO IT WOULD HELP ME VOTE AND HELP ME MAKE BETTER DECISIONS AND THEN HOLD PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE AS WE INFILL. P IT IS NOT IN WRITING, IT

DOESN'T HAPPEN. >> MAYOR: THANK YOU, ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK ABOUT ORDINANCE 110? SEEING NONE, HEARING NONE. ARE YOU READY TO VOTE? ALL MEMBERS CAST YOUR VOTE. EVERY MEMBER VOTED.

ANY MEMBER WISH TO CHANGE THEIR VOTE?

MADAM CLERK, TAKE THE VOTE. >> TEN YES, TWO NO, AND ZERO

ABSTAIN. >> MAYOR: ORDINANCE 110 IS ADOPTED. FIRST READING.

COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> ORDINANCE 111-2021-22, FIRST READING, AMENDING THE ZONING ORDINANCE AND MAP OF THE CITY OF CLARKSVILLE, APPLICATION OF LUIS ALICEA, KOLT MILAM, AGENT, FOR ZONE CHANGE ON PROPERTY LOCATED AT THE INTERSECTION OF CUMBERLAND DRIVE & EASTLAND DRIVE FROM R-2 SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT TO R-6 SINGLE MULTIPLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT.

BOTH STAFF REMEDIES APPROVAL. I SO MOVE.

>> MAYOR: PROPERLY MADE AND SECONDED.

COUNCILPERSON SMITH, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

>> COUNCILPERSON: AS I HEARD MY NEW CON ST CONSTITUENTS SPEAK AT THIS, THERE IS NO SEWAGE AVAILABLE, SIDEWALKS ARE REQUIRED, TRAFFIC. THE STREET IS TO NARROW.

I WILL BE VOTING AGAINST THIS UNTIL WE GET THINGS TAKE CARE OF. SEWAGE, STREET WIDENED.

AND MAKE IT MORE AVAILABLE -- I MEAN, MORE FEASIBLE TO BUILD.

SO BASED UPON WHAT MY CONSTITUENTS HAVE PRESENTED TO US TODAY, I WOULD BE VOTING AGAINST THIS, THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

AS WAS NOTED BEFORE, THIS WAS RECOMMENDED FOR DISAPPROVAL FROM THE REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION.

I, MYSELF VOTED AGAINST IT. I APOLOGIZE, BUT OBVIOUSLY THERE WAS A MAJORITY OF US. THERE WAS A VAST MAJORITY THAT VOTED AGAINST THIS. ONE THING FOR ME THAT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE WAS VOTING TO CHANGE THE ZONING ON A PROPERTY JUST SO THAT IT WOULD BE MORE FEASIBLE TO DEVELOP THE LOT ACROSS THE STREET. I KNOW THAT HAD BEEN TALKED ABOUT BEFORE AND I KNOW HE STATED HE WOULD LEAVE ONE HOUSE THERE. BUT IF YOU ARE ADDING IN NOW THE EXPENSE OF HAVING TO WIDEN THE ROAD, COULD THAT IN TURN THEN ALLOW THAT TO BE DEVELOPED. SO IT WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY ADDING TO THE TRAFFIC AS OPPOSED TO WHAT IT IS RIGHT NOW.

IN THE COMPARISON OF IT ITSELF. LIKE IT WAS MENTIONED, THERE IS NO SEWER THERE, IT IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE TAKEN CARE OF THROUGH THERE. IF YA'LL RECALL THE PICTURES, THIS WAS A VERY, VERY NARROW ROAD.

SO AS I DID ON THE REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION, I WILL BE

VOTING AGAINST THIS ONE. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON BUTLER,

YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR. I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THIS.

SO EVERYTHING THAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS PROBLEMATIC.

I WANT TO CONFIRM THIS WITH YOU, AS THE CHAIR, THE SEWAGE, THE ROAD, THE SIDEWALKS, HE HAS TO DO THAT, CORRECT?

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN, DIRECT TO YOU.

>> COUNCILPERSON: IT IS R6. IT WILL REQUIRE THE SIDEWALK.

ANY DEVELOPMENT THAT'S DONE IN THE CITY REQUIRES THAT YOU HAVE SEWER AVAILABLE. I REALIZE THE OTHER ONES DO NOT BUT THEY WERE BUILT A LONG TIME AGO.

SO IT DIDN'T REQUIRE IT THEN. SO IT IS REQUIRED NOW IN DEVELOPMENTS WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS AND WAS STATED IN THERE, THE WIDENING OF THE ROAD WOULD BE UPON HIM TO HAVE TO TAKE CARE

OF WIDENING THAT ROAD. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU.

SO I'M JUST GOING TO LEAVE IT AT THIS BECAUSE WE HAVE SEEN THIS PARTICULAR BUILDER IN HERE BEFORE AND TO MY OBSERVATION, HE IS TRYING TO DO A GOOD THING IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD AND, YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE YOUNG BUILDERS WHO ARE INDEPENDENT.

WE ALREADY KNOW WE DON'T LIKE THE BIG CORPORATE BUILDERS.

NOW YOU HAVE YOUNG BUILDERS THAT ARE INDEPENDENT THAT ARE TRYING TO DO A GOOD THING IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD, A GOOD THING THAT IS NECESSARY FOR CLARKSVILLE AND, YOU KNOW, ARE TRYING TO GET THEMSELVES GOING IN THEIR BUSINESSES.

AND IT IS LIKE WE JUST KEEP TELLING THEM NO.

I JUST NEEDED TO THROW THAT OUT THERE.

BECAUSE IT HAD ME IN THE FEELS TONIGHT.

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

HOLLEMAN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR. SO THIS ROAD IS REALLY, REALLY NARROW. I KNOW I HAVE TA TALKED TO SOMEF THE RESIDENTS THAT LIVE THERE. THEY HAVE HAD CONCERNS, RIGHTLY SO. THE TREES HAVE GOTTEN OVERGROWN

[01:00:01]

BEFORE, CAUSES VISIBILITY ISSUES.

THE ROAD IS EXTREMELY NARROW. I WILL BE VOTING THIS ONE DOWN.

THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT, THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK ABOUT ORDINANCE 111? SEEING NONE, HEARING NONE.

ARE YOU READY TO VOTE? ALL MEMBERS CAST YOUR VOTE . ALL MEMBERS VOTED.

AS MENTIONED IN THE PUBLIC HEARING ABOUT THIS EARLIER, THERE ARE OTHER BUSINESSES LOCATED ALONG THERE.

[01:05:02]

ANOTHER COUNCIL MEMBER ALSO TALKED TO A RESIDENT AND I DID AS WELL. THEY DON'T TAKE ISSUE WITH THIS CHANGE BEING MADE. I FEEL LIKE IT WILL KEEP THE CHARACTER OF THE HOME MORE SO THAN IT WOULD IF IT WERE TO BE

CHANGED INTO R4. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON BUTLER,

YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANKS MAYOR.

I SWEAR I WATCHED ONLINE LAST WEEK BUT WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR THE STAFF DISAPPROVAL? WHAT WAS THEIR JUSTIFICATION.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN.

>> COUNCILPERSON: BEAR WITH ME ONE SECOND.

I CAN TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS.

THEY FELT THAT IT WAS FOR, ONE, INCONSISTENT WITH THE ADOPTED LAND USE. THEY THOUGHT IT WAS OUT OF CHARACTER WITH THE RESIDENTIAL AND HISTORIC BLOCK FACE OF HOMES. THEIR CONCERN WAS THAT THIS COULD CONTINUE ALONG A TREND THAT MORE AND MORE OF THE HOMES WOULD BE CONVERTED INTO COMMERCIAL SPACES, NO LONGER BE RESIDENTIAL SPACES. THEY FELT IT WOULD ERODE THE HISTORICAL RESIDENTIAL CHARACTER OF THE AREA.

THAT WAS THE MAIN THING. THAT WAS THE BIG THING FOR WHY THEY WERE AGAINST IT. IF NIGIF I'M NOT REMEMBERING EVERYTHING CORRECTLY, I APPRECIATE THAT.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK. I'M FROM A PLACE WHERE THIS IS REALLY TYPICAL. PENNSYLVANIA IS PRETTY OLD UP THERE. ALL THE HOUSES ARE 200 YEARS OLD. SO IT IS PRETTY TYPICAL THEE THE GIANT VICTORIANS HOUSE, THEY DO TURN THEM INTO DUPLEXES OR APARTMENTS. I APPRECIATE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO STICK TO THE HISTORICAL INTEGRITY.

[8) FINANCE COMMITTEE]

>> MAYOR: CONSENT AGENDA IS ADOPTED.

THANK YOU. READY FOR THE FINANCE COMMITTEE

REPORT, CHAIRPERSON STREETMAN. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR. ORDINANCE 107-2021-22, FIRST READING, AUTHORIZING THE EXERCISE OF THE RIGHT OF EMINENT DOMAIN TO ACQUIRE EASEMENTS, PROPERTY AND RIGHTS OF WAY REQUIRED TO FACILITATE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SPRING CREEK PARKWAY PROJECT. FINANCE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED

APPROVAL AND I SO MOVE. >> MAYOR: MOTION HAS BEEN MADE AND PROPERLY SECONDED IN FAVOR OF THE ORDINANCE 107.

ANY COMMENT OR QUESTION? COUNCILPERSON MARQUIS, YOU ARE

RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: I JUST HAD A QUESTION. YOU MAY KNOW.

BY ANY CHANCE, ANY FUTURE PLANS ON EXTENDING THIS FROM TRENTON

WESTWARD? >> MAYOR: THAT THE NOT CURRENTLY

ON -- >> COUNCILPERSON: IF THAT'S THE PROCESS OF WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH THIS.

>> MAYOR: WE ARE GOING EASTWARD. WE ARE GOING FROM TRENTON OVER

TO WILMA. >> COUNCILPERSON: OKAY, SORRY.

>> MAYOR: NOT A PROBLEM. COUNCILPERSON ZACHARIAS, YOU ARE

RECOGNIZED. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

SO THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ISSUES THAT I HAVE HAD TO CONSIDER ON MY RELATIVELY SHORT TIME HERE.

ON ONE HAND, I FIRMLY BELIEVE WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE TRAFFIC ON WILMA RUDOLPH AND TRENTON.

I UNDERSTAND WE HAVE LIMITED OPTIONS IN THIS AREA BECAUSE WE DON'T IN THESE ROADS. THESE PROJECTS BRING RELIEF TO THESE AREAS. I REALIZE THIS NECESSARY MAY BE NECESSARY TO FORCE MORTGAGE LENDERS TO ACT IN A TIMELY MANNER. I AM ENCOURAGED BY THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE AFFECTED PROPERTY OWNERS SUPPORT THE PROJECT AND WILL ONLY BE MINIMALLY AFFECTED BY THIS ORDINANCE.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THIS PROJECT IS A BAND-AID ON SELF-INFLICTED WOUND. I HAVE HEARD MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL SAY WE NEED TO OUTGROW OUR SHOES BEFORE WE JUSTIFY BUYING NEW ONES. THIS IS WHAT BUYING NEW SHOES LOOKS LIKE, WE HAVE TO GO TO COURT TO FORCE PEOPLE TO SELL US THEIR SHOES. WHAT INCENTIVE IS THERE FOR THIS COUNCIL TO EXERCISE DISCRETION WHEN IT CAN SOLVE THE OVERCROWDING PROBLEMS WE ARE HELPING TO CREATE SIMPLY BY VOTING TO TAKE THE LAND FROM OUR CITIZENS.

THIS IS NOT THE MESSAGE THAT I WANT TO SEND.

ULTIMATELY, AND UNFORTUNATE FOR ME, THIS CAME DOWN TO ONE THING.

AT SOME POINT A PREVIOUS CITY COUNCIL VOTED TO AUTHORIZE THE USE OF EMINENT DOMAIN TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT.

I WISH THEY HADN'T, BUT THEY DID.

I WANT TO BE CLEAR, I DON'T FEEL THIS COUNCIL IS OBLIGATED TO GO ALONG WITH VOTES OF PREVIOUS MEMBERS BUT I DO THINK IT BEARS CONSIDERATION ESPECIALLY WHEN WE TALK ABOUT PROJECTS WHERE THE PLANNING TAKES LONGER THAN THE TWO YEARS BEFORE CITY COUNCIL ELECTIONS. THE CITY HAS SPENT CONSIDERABLE TIME AND RESOURCES TO GET TO THIS POINT AND DONE SO WITH PREVIOUS COUNCIL'S BLESSING TO INVOKE EMINENT DOMAIN IF NECESSARY FOR THIS PROJECT. TO REVERSE COURSE NOW WOULD PUT US FURTHER BEHIND IN A RACE WE ARE ALREADY LOSING.

TO FAMILIES THAT OPPOSE AND STAND TO LOSE LAND, I OFFER MY SIGNSINCERE APOLOGY. IT SHOULDN'T HAVE COME TO THIS,

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON

REYNOLDS. >> COUNCILPERSON: I ECHO THE PREVIOUS SPEAKER. AS A CITY, WHEN WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS SPRING CREEK PARKWAY FOR ALMOST A DECADE, WE DID NOT PRESERVE THE RIGHT-OF-WAY AS WE INFILLED, THIS IS ON US AS CITY PLANNERS AND PEOPLE THAT KEEP VOTING FOR THINGS WITHOUT FORWARD THINKING ABOUT WHERE WE ARE GOING TO PUT A STREET OR PUT A CONNECTION. I WILL BE VOTING FOR IT BUT IT IS WITH A HEAVY HEART AND I DON'T DO IT LIGHTLY.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON STREETMAN, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

I WANT TO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT THE MAJORITY OF THESE CASES, WE ARE NOT ACTUALLY TAKING LAND FROM FAMILIES.

IF I REMEMBER MY NUMBER CORRECTLY, EITHER 9 OR 10 OF THE 15 PROPERTIES WERE STRICTLY EASEMENTS.

SOME OF WHICH ARE JUST TEMPORARY CONSTRUCTION EASEMENTS TO ALLOW THIS TO BE BUILT. AS HAS BEEN MENTIONED, THIS HAS BEEN TALKED ABOUT FOR MANY YEARS, WHICH IS WHY LONG TIME AGO A PREVIOUS COUNCIL DID VOTE TO ALLOW THIS.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS THAT WE GAIN FROM THIS, SO TO SPEAK, WITH THIS IMMINENT DOUGH NAIN IS EMINENT DOMAIN IS THEABILITY TOE MORTGAGE COMPANIES. THEY CAN TAKE MANY MONTHS TO EVEN CHOOSE TO REVIEW THE DOCUMENTATION AND THEY CAN

[01:20:01]

CHARGE US ANYWHERE FROM AROUND 5 OR 6 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO DO IT.

THIS MOVES THIS PROCESS ALONG MUCH MORE QUICKLY, ALLOWING THOSE PROPERTY OWNERS TO BE ABLE TO MAKE THE DECISIONS FOR WHAT THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO WITH THEIR PROPERTY.

AGAIN, EVEN IN THE CASE OF THE EASEMENTS.

I WOULD ASK MY FELLOW COUNCIL MEMBERS FOR US TO PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS SO THAT WE CAN TAKE SOME OF THE BURDEN OFF OF OUR STREETS THAT WE HAVE NOW, KEEPING IN MIND THAT WHAT IS GOING TO BE CONNECTED BETWEEN THESE TWO ROADS ARE TWO STATE ROADS, ROADS OF WHICH WE HAVE NO ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO IMPROVE OURSELF. THE WAY WE CAN IMPROVE THE TRAFFIC RIGHT THERE AND RELIEVE SOME ON TRE TRENTON ROAD IS TO W THE CUT-THROUGH. IT IS ANTICIPATED THIS ROAD WILL BE CARRYING 40,000 VEHICLES A DAY.

THAT'S A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF TRAFFIC THAT WILL BE RELIEVED IN

DIFFERENT AREAS. >> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON SMITH,

YOU ARE RECOGNIZED. >> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR. I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO THE WORDS OF MY FELLOW COUNCIL LADY. WE DO NEED -- I CALL THEM RAMPS AROUND THE CITY TO ALLEVIATE THE TRAFFIC C CONGESTION WE HAVE IN THE CITY. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FOR SOME TIME. WE HAVE TO DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. IS WE ARE NOT TAKING ANYBODY'S PROPERTY. WHEN THEY SAY EMINENT DOMAIN, I HATE THAT WORD TOO, AS WELL. WE DO PAY THEM IF WE USE THE LAND. THERE IS ABOUT TEN OUT OF THE 15 THAT WE USE THE LAND TO PUT SOME LINES, RUN SOME LINES, PIPES.

BUT WE DO NOT TAKE PEOPLE'S PROPERTY.

THERE ARE LAWS WE HAVE TO FOLLOW.

AND SO WE WANT TO GET THAT STRAIGHT.

WE ARE NOT TAKING ANYBODY'S PROPERTY.

WE ARE TRYING TO FREE UP SOME EASEMENTS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN GET THIS SPRING CREEK PARKWAY PROJECT GOING.

WE NEED TO INCREASE FREEWAYS TO MOVE MORE FREELY AND ALLEVIATE THE C CONGESTION. WE THANK THE MAYOR FOR THE TRANSPORTATION 2020 PLAN BEING BROUGHT FORTH AND WE ARE WORKING ON THAT RIGHT NOW. JUST TRYING TO FREE UP SOME LAND SO THAT WE CAN MAKE SOME BETTER FREEWAYS.

BETTER TRAFFIC. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON BUTLER, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANKS MAYOR. SHORT AND SWEET.

WE NEED THE SPRING CREEK PARKWAY.

WE DO. WE NEED TO ALLEVIATE THE TRAFFIC, WE DO. EMINENT DOMAIN IS STILL EMINENT DOMAIN. I'M VOTING ON THIS BECAUSE I HAVE A PRINCIPLED STANCE AGAINST EMINENT DOMAIN.

THANK YOU. >> MAYOR: ANYONE ELSE WISH TO SPEAK REGARDING ORDINANCE 107? SEEING NONE, ARE YOU READY TO VOTE? ALL MEMBERSALL MEMBERS CAST YOUV OTED. ANY MEMBER WISH TO CHANGE THEI?

>> I BELIEVE OUR RECIPIENT IS IN THE HOUSE RIGHT NOW.

>> MAYOR: ALL RIGHT, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED IN THE WELL, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO REWIND THE TAPE AND DO IT AGAIN.

>> COUNCILPERSON: ALL RIGHT. SO TAKE TWO.

SO AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, OFTENTIMES WE ARE DROWNED OUT BY NEGATIVITY. I WANTED TO RECOGNIZE A FELLOW RESIDENT HERE IN CLARKSVILLE AT HIS ACT OF KINDNESS TOWARD HIS NEIGHBOR. LAST MONTH AS MANY OF YOU HEARD, FIRE BROKE OUT AT HIS NEIGHBOR'S HOME AND MR. HINDERLITTLE TOOK

[01:35:06]

ACTION. HE MANAGED TO GET HIS NEIGHBOR OUT FOR SAFETY BEFORE THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAD ARRIVED.

HE IS AN EXEMPLARY RESIDENT OF OUR CITY AND WE SHOULD ALL STRIVE TO BE BETTER NEIGHBORS AND CITIZENS AND CELEBRATE THE WINS INSTEAD OF FIXATING ON THE LOSSES.

I THANK YOU MR. HINDERLITTLE FOR STEPPING UP IN A TIME OF NEED AND I WANT YOU TO HAVE THIS CERTIFICATE.

>> MAYOR: LET'S GIVE HIM A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.

YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SOME REMARKS.

>> ABSOLUTELY, YES, SIR. FIRST AND FOREMOST, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY ALL GLORY GOES TO GOD. OUR GLORY GOES TO GOD.

I HAVE A FEW THINGS, SIR, IF IT'S OKAY.

THE PARKS AND RECREATION POSITION, I WOULD LOVE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A POSITION FOR THE CITY OF CLARKSVILLE.

ANY POSITION, I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR ANY POSITION OF THE CITY OF CLARKSVILLE, JUST TO BE ABLE TO SERVE MY COMMUNITY AND BE ABLE TO REBUILD OUR REPUTATION, TO BE POINTBLANK AND HONEST. GOD HAS CHANGED MY LIFE.

JESUS CHRIST CAME TO MY LIFE AND CHANGED ME AND REDEEMED INTO A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON THAN I USED TO BE.

THE VOLUNTEERING WORK, I WOULD LOVE TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THAT POSITION. I WOULD DO IT ABSOLUTELY, ANY VOLUNTEER WORK, ANYTHING I CAN DO TO SERVE MY COMMUNITY.

>> MAYOR: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON REYNOLDS, FOR COMMENTS?

>> COUNCILPERSON: I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A NOTE OUT OF A PREVIOUS SPEAKER'S ACT AND I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS THE DESPAIR THAT IS BEING FELT AND EXPRESSED BY THE WOMEN IN OUR COMMUNITY AND THE MEN WHO RESPECT US. WOMEN ARE LAWYERS, DOCTORS, NURSES, CONSTRUCTION WORKERS, WRITERS.

THEY TELL US THE OPPORTUNITY FOR US ARE WIDE OPEN AS LONG AS WE ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT LESS PAY THAN MEN WHO WORK NEXT TO US WITH LITTLE TO NO HEALTHCARE. WE LEAD MILITARY OPERATIONS, OWN SMALL AND BIG BUSINESSES, WHILE SERVING AS HEAD OF OUR OWN HOUSEHOLD. IF WE ARE HONEST WITH OURSELVES, WE EXPECT WOMEN TO MAKE MOST OF THE HEALTHCARE DECISIONS IN THE FAMILY. WOMEN ARE RESPONSIBLE TO TAKE CHILDREN AND ELDERLY PARENTS TO MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS, MANAGE MEDICATIONS, THEIR WELLNESS AND ILLNESSES.

WOMEN MUST ALSO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES AND MANAGE OUR OWN HEALTHCARE DURING SICKNESSES, PREGNANCIES, PREVENTATIVE HEALTH VISITS AS WELL AS OUR SPOUSES. I FEEL THE RAGE AND INDIGNATION OF THE WOMEN WHEN WE ARE EXPECTED TO MAKE MEDICAL DECISIONS AND OFTEN END OF LIFE DECISIONS FOR OUR LOVED ONES BUT WE ARE NOT TRUSTED TO MAKE OUR DECISIONS REGARDING OUR OWN REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH AND CHOICES. I WORE A PAIR OF COMBAT BOOTS FOR 21 YEARS AND WORKED IN MILITARY MEDICINE FOR 40 YEARS.

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MOMENT IN MY LIFE WHEN I DID NOT HAVE A LIST OF PROVIDERS THAT REFUSED TO PRESCRIBE BIRTH CONTROL MEDICATIONS ON AND OFF THE BATTLEFIELD.

THERE WERE A GROUP OF WOMEN THAT REVISED THE LIST AND PASSED IT ON. THERE ARE RELIGIOUS-BASED HOSPITALS IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY THAT REFUSE TO PERFORM LIFE-SAVING PROCEDURES BECAUSE IT IS AGAINST THEIR RELIGION.

IN DEFIANCE OF DOCUMENTED MEDICAL BEST PRACTICES.

DENYING ACCESS TO MEDICAL PROCEDURES BASED ON RELIGION OR ON AN INDIVIDUAL'S BELIEF IS ILLEGALEGALIZING MALICIOUS MALPE AGAINST WOMEN. THE MEMBERS OF THIS COMMUNITY WHO TRUST THE WOMEN TO MAKE OUR OWN HEALTHCARE CHOICES AND UNCONDITIONALLY RESPECT THE PRIVACY MUST JOIN TOGETHER AND SEND A MESSAGE TO OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AT ALL LEVELS, NO JUDGE, NO POLL RESIGNATION, NO BAN SHOULD EVER BLOCK A WOMAN'S PERSONAL MEDICAL DECISION OR SET A COURSE FOR THEIR LIFE.

ABORTION ACCESS SHOULD NOT BE BASED ON ZIP CODE, INCOME LEVEL OR IMMIGRATION STATUS. CONTACT YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND TELL THEM TO FIGHT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS THE POWER TO CONTROL THEIR OWN BODIES, LIVES AND FUTURES.

WE DESERVE ELECTED OFFICIALS AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT AND JUDGES WHO TRUST AND RESPECT THE WOMEN.

I WANT THE WOMEN IN THIS COMMUNITY TO KNOW THAT I SEE YOU, I TRUST THE WOMEN. WOMEN HAVE LOST BATTLES REGARDING OUR RIGHTS BUT THE WAR THAT IS BEING WAGED AGAINST US IS NOT OVER. TOGETHER WE MUST STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK. VOTE ON AUGUST 4TH AND NOVEMBER 8TH AND VOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY TRUST AND RESPECT THE WOMEN. OUR LIVES LITERALLY DEPEND ON IT. THANK YOU.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON RICHMOND, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: THANK YOU, MAYOR.

[01:40:01]

JUST WANTED TO SAY TO ALL MOTHERS OF CLARKSVILLE, MONTGOMERY COUNTY, WHETHER YOU ARE EXPECTING MOTHER, RETIRED MOTHER, MILITARY MOTHER, SINGLE MOTHER, YOUNG MOTHER, MOTHER SERVING OUR COUNTRY OR WHETHER YOU HAVE YOUR MOTHER HAS TRANSITIONED AND YOUR MOTHER IS NO LONGER WITH US, FROM THE ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL AND FROM THE MAYOR'S OFFICE, WE WISH YOU A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY THIS SUNDAY.

>> MAYOR: COUNCILPERSON MARQUIS, YOU ARE RECOGNIZED.

>> COUNCILPERSON: JUST REAL QUICK, TOMORROW IS THE FIRST FRIDAY OF THE MONTH. I WILL ALWAYS ADVOCATE FOR LITERACY. TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO THE PARK TO READ AND GET FREE BOOKS AND FREE POPCORN.

>> MAYOR: YOU HAD ME AT POP KONG.
