CLARKSVILLE, Ind. — The Clarksville Redevelopment Department hopes to attract restaurants to the southern Indiana city’s riverfront with discounted liquor licenses.
The News and Tribune reports that the South Clarksville Redevelopment Plan seeks to capitalize on the city’s waterfront by revitalizing a 320-acre area for residential and commercial use. Officials on Tuesday approved a $20,000 contract with a Sellersburg company called The Wheatley Group to help establish economic incentives in the area.
One of the economic incentives would be to create an Ohio River development district that could let restaurants apply for a liquor license from the state for $1,000 instead of as high as $65,000.
The district would include about three blocks or 1,500 feet of the riverfront.
