Great Place to Live Posted On: 7/6/2011 8:53:26 AM
I have lived in Clarksville 31 years. I originally came from New York City. My child grew up here and now my granddaughter. The cost of living is extremely affordable, average rent of a two bedroom apt is $750. Average cost of a home is about $150,000 new construction! The jobmarket is very spread out but Clarksville has landed one of the largest and most progressive companies, Hemlock Semiconductor Corp, part of Dow Corning. This billion plus plant will hire from the community and Austin Peay State University has installed a chemical engineering facility to teach the skills needed to work at this plant. They will manufacture chemical materials needed in the production of solar panels. This is only one of many plants here in Clarksville. It's also a great place for retirees because all of the necessary health care is here or in Nashville, 50 miles away. The county is 583 sq miles and within 500 miles of 2/3rds of the country. This is a very central location for those whose children have scattered all over the country.
