The CCDC has three key missions:
- Preserve the history of Clarksville. The CCDC maintains the historic Haskell House as a museum to Clarksville; fights the demolition of houses that contribute to the Clarksville National Register Historic District; works with property owners to help them identify appropriate ways to remodel or enlarge their historically contributing homes; sponsors events to educate neighborhood residents about the history of Clarksville; and responds to media questions about that history.
- Build and maintain a strong sense of community in the neighborhood. The CCDC achieves this mission mainly by organizing neighborhood events. The events bring residents together and also provide opportunities for residents to become more involved with their neighborhood through volunteerism.
- Maintain the economic and ethnic diversity of Clarksville through our affordable housing program. The CCDC’s homes and duplexes are scattered throughout the neighborhood and provide 15 families with housing. For more information about this program, go to the Affordable Housing page on this site.
