Our mission at the Clarksville Economic Development Corporation is to help existing businesses remain successful, to foster local entrepreneurship, promote tourism, and to recruit new industry and business to Red River County.

Each project is judged on its own merit, with types of jobs created and payroll the most important factors. Bring your industry to Clarksville. Contact us to get started!

Announcement: Trailblazer Jump Start

bigstock-Beech-forest-in-spring-with-th-43996600I am very excited to inform you that several Red River County and Dallas Metroplex NETT Supporters have stepped up the past two weeks and presented a plan to clear the NETT Red River County corridor using the private sector.

They call it “Trailblazer Jump Start”.

We have located a local vendor who owns and operates a chipper/mulching machine and has committed to begin next month the 1st of December starting at the west RR Co. line and work eastward. Funding will be done hopefully via our 2064 Face Book, the 200 plus Trail corridor advocates and Trail advocates you know.

I challenge all of us to tell all of the Trail advocates you know about this funding/donor need. The clearing will go only as far as the donations will allow!
