    an ordinance amending the operational and capital budgets for fiscal year 2022 to create and add additional funding , totaling $27 , 460 , 000 , for capital budgets .
   The amended budget will fund the community ' s much - needed downtown parking garage to accommodate the exploding downtown growth and provide parking for the upcoming F&M Bank Arena , the future Roxy Regional Performing Arts Center , and evolving downtown businesses .
   Of the $27 . 4 million , the City will use $7 . 4 million to cover the costs of critical repairs , improvements , and renovations for the existing Cumberland Garage , Frosty Morn revitalization project , Smith - Trahern Mansion repairs , and TN Department of Transportation ( TDOT ) Multi - modal projects; such as sidewalks and bus stops along several City streets that are in fact State - maintained roads .
   The Council also adopted , on first reading ,  
   Ordinance 107 - 2021 - 22
    , which gives the City the necessary authority to exercise the right of eminent domain to acquire portions of 15 properties . The portions will , with minimal disruption , primarily provide access and construction easements and small amounts of right - of - way to facilitate the continuing construction of the Spring Creek Parkway project .
   Chris Cowan , senior engineering manager for the City Street Department , said for over 20 years , the City of Clarksville has been analyzing multiple ways to alleviate the traffic congestion and enhance the City’s transportation system . The Spring Creek Parkway will help do that .
   In 2021 , after multiple extensive studies ,  
   Transportation 2020+
    came into fruition , consisting of priorities for streets , sidewalks , greenways , and public transportation for the near future and beyond
    . In a study released by the City , 64% of local citizens surveyed favored the transportation plan .
   Transportation 2020+ includes the Spring Creek Parkway project . The project is a three - phase , three - mile section of roadway connecting Trenton Road to Wilma Rudolph Boulevard and into Ted Crozier , Sr . Boulevard .
   In a presentation given by Cowen to the City Council on
    April 28
    , he projected up to 40 , 000 vehicles using the parkway after its completion .
   “This particular project connects some of the highest density residential areas in the City with the highest density commercialized areas , ” said Cowan . “It’s highly needed , and it’s probably the biggest single roadway project that we have on our books right now . I’m excited to move forward . ”
   In total , 15 parcels are included in this ordinance . Five are for temporary construction easements; another five are for permanent slope and drainage easements , plus temporary construction easements . The City will purchase portions of the remaining parcels from the owners .
