Here is yet another reference to our Robertson County Growth Plan (“CGP”) OUTSIDE of Robertson County – this article from Cumberland RegionTomorrow (“CRT”).
Many, many thanks to Bridget Jones of CRT for passing this article along to me. Robertson County can look forward to being publicized in a forthcoming newsletter discussing our efforts with the CGP.
Here is a blurb from the article describing Robertson County,
Robertson County is one of Tennessee’s top agricultural producers, and is probably best known for its fire-smoked tobacco production in rural communities such as Adams—home of the world famous Bell Witch—Cross Plains, Cedar Hill, and Orlinda. Springfield, the county seat, boasts a residential historic district, one of the state’s oldest and finest courthouse, and revitalized downtown square. Ridgetop and Greenbrier, located along the Cumberland Region’s Highland Rim, are also incorporated communities located 800 feet above sea level. Coopertown, once a famous distillery town, is located halfway between Nashville and Clarksville.
In 2007, CRT conducted AIA 150 Blueprint Community Visioning Workshops with 100+ Robertson County citizens and uncovered an expressed desire to preserve agricultural lands and revitalize historic town centers, such as the county seat of Springfield. CRT continues to work with Robertson County and municipals leaders today in developing comprehensive county-wide plans as the first CRT Quality Growth Toolbox Pilot Community.
If you have a couple of moments, CRT has compiled an itemization of the factors used to analyze and evaluate in assessing “QualityGrowth.” It certainly shows what we are trying to protect, that is, our wonderful heritage and all the very things that make Robertson County such a gem of Middle Tennessee.
