Comprehensive Growth Plan & Cumberland Region Tormmorow

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. 


  1. After a decade in the NFL searching for the right pieces and the right team, Carson Palmer has found a home in Arizona. NFL Jerseys And the Cardinals want him to stay awhile.

    The team announced Friday that it signed Palmer to a three-year extension, which will keep him under contract through 2017. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the pact is worth $50 million with roughly $20 million guaranteed through 2015, according to a source who has seen the deal.

    It's a remarkable story for a quarterback nearly a decade removed from his playing for his only legitimate title-contending team -- the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals with Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Palmer tore his knee ligaments in the team's first Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes playoff game that season, sparking an NFL rule change and a wandering search for Palmer's mojo. Enter Bruce Arians.

    The Cardinals coach has an aggressive vertical style that complements Palmer's game, and the weapons to make him look better. Palmer is no longer a top-five quarterback like he once cheap sale jerseys was, but he still throws four to five passes each game that few quarterbacks could make. He's supported by NFL Jerseys Store a wildly talented supporting cast and a strong defense. Perhaps most importantly, he's learned to limit his mistakes.

    The contract extension indicates that Palmer will get more than just this season to win it all in Arizona, but we suspect very little is promised after 2015. Nike Roshe Run Palmer knows more than anyone this is a year-to-year league, and the Cardinals will likely build in contractual protection so they can easily move on from the 34-year-old if he nosedives new nike nfl jerseys or gets injured.

    The contract, however, does take the pressure off Arizona from finding a "quarterback of the future." They could still draft a quarterback to develop in the middle rounds next season if anyone strikes Arians' fancy, but they are comfortable with Palmer and backup wholesale jerseys Drew Stanton in the meantime. This Nike Air Max 90 Cardinals team has a chance to go deep in the playoffs, and Palmer must relish this final chance to rewrite his career.
