INTRODUCTION Over the past five years, major manufacturing companies have invested $2 billion in Clarksville, creating 3,500 jobs. For a city the size of Clarksville, this is an astounding level of investment that has changed the trajectory of Clarksville’s growth and development. The purpose of this study is to provide information for the Clarksville-Montgomery County Economic Development Council to use in guiding the direction of this growth and development. During the course of this study, many Clarksville leaders from Fort Campbell, education, and industry participated in surveys, focus groups, and interviews. The results are included at the end of each section to better understand the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities open to the region.
