Clarksville-Montgomery County Sustainability Report

Check out the 2017 Clarksville-Montgomery County Sustainability Report to see what environmental efforts have been accomplished so far, some of the future goals, and what can be done at the residential level. The topics of air quality, energy conservation and efficiency, stormwater management, water quality and waste reduction affect everyone who resides in Clarksville and Montgomery County. Work on the report began in fall 2014, when County Mayor Jim Durrett and City Mayor Kim McMillan agreed to have a Sustainability Task Force develop a Community Sustainability Report focused on areas that impact our local environment.

Clarksville-Montgomery County Named Gold Community

Clarksville-Montgomery County has been named a Valley Sustainable Gold Community by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

Previously named a Silver community in 2015, the city-county recently completed a program reevaluation. Developed in partnership with TVA and Boyette Strategic Advisors (Boyette), TVA’s Valley Sustainable Communities program works with cities and counties throughout the region to help them develop a healthy environment, a thriving community and long-term economic prosperity. In order to achieve this advancement, the local committee initiated several improvements to already existing green practices as well as created a written sustainability plan for the community moving forward.

Spearheaded by a joint effort between the Clarksville-Montgomery County Industrial Development Board and the Montgomery County Green Certification program, the advancement from Silver to Gold in the Valley Sustainable Communities Program helps our community better document, and thus improve, existing sustainability programs.
