Plan to bring 150 single-family homes to Clarksville

A developer revealed details Thursday evening of a concept plan that proposes building 150 single-family detached homes in Clarksville just off of Route 108.

The project, known as Enclaves at Tierney Farm, is located south of Route 32 off of Route 108 and Guilford Road. 

Joe Rutter, a principal at Land Design and Development and a representative for the development group, presented the details of the concept plan at a pre-submission community meeting held at the Robinson Nature Center on June 26. 

Rutter said the project isn't expected to be through the approval process until 2015, and the earliest the construction could begin would be late in 2015. He said the build out is expected to be between three and five years -- meaning residents wouldn't move in until 2018. 

Among the concerns raised by residents at the meeting were: increasing traffic on Guilford Road; overcrowding the schools; and the density of the property.

Rutter said the developer is required to study the impact on the roads and the schools, and will have to accommodate any changes mandated by the county in that regard.

He added that the current denisty is allowed under the zoning, and that any changes would have to come from comments from the county's Department of Planning and Zoning.
