The number of cars in Clarksdale has more than tripled since 2005, to more than 1,600, according to new data from the Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber’s latest survey found that more than half of Clarksdale’s 1,634 cars are worth less than $50,000.
The survey also showed that half of all vehicles in Clarksesville have a low-value tag, while nearly a third of the cars in the city are not worth the cost of the vehicle.
The Clarksville Chamber of Business said the survey showed that nearly one-third of Clarksville’s 1.4 million vehicles were either not worth their money or were worth less as a result of high vehicle ownership and an emphasis on maintaining their value.
“Our focus in the past has been on preserving the quality of life of our residents, which includes a desire to preserve our environment and maintain our quality of living,” said Chuck Fennell, president of the chamber.
“In addition, we know that a high percentage of Clarksburg residents want to make their city an economic powerhouse.
The number one challenge for those who wish to accomplish this goal is the cost associated with maintaining our quality and our economy.
We believe that the time has come for a major shift in our approach to car ownership in Clarksburg.
As a result, we have decided to develop a plan that includes increasing the amount of money that is invested in our community, including increasing vehicle ownership to a point where it equates to the value of the vehicles in the community.”
A total of 527 of the Clarksdale vehicles have low-valued tags, while about 180 vehicles have high-valued ones, according the chamber’s survey.
About 1,000 vehicles have a zero value tag, which is a low estimate of the value the vehicle is actually worth.
About 200 vehicles have an active tag that is in good condition, while more than 70 vehicles have tags that are in poor condition, the chamber reported.
Some of the most common reasons for low- and high-value tags are being used for personal use, lack of maintenance, or excessive use.
In addition, low-valuation vehicles are often not equipped with an automatic transmission and are therefore subject to frequent mechanical problems, according Fennill.
Clarksville has not made any major investments in the area, but it plans to add thousands of parking spaces, new transit stations and sidewalks, a pedestrian bridge over I-10 and more roads to improve the city’s public transportation system, according WJHL-TV.
Car Repair and Car Maintenance Issues The chamber reported that nearly half of the 2,977 vehicles in Clarkesville have one or more of the following issues with the brakes and steering system: “Low-speed steering” “Limited vehicle storage space” The car may be in poor repair due to improper maintenance or other issues.
In addition to vehicles with low-and high-valuators, the majority of Clarksvillians also report that they have limited vehicle storage.
Fennell said the chamber is working with the city and county to address issues related to vehicle storage, but he did not provide details about what measures are being taken.
As more cars are added to the city, Fennells hopes to see more community members interested in purchasing a vehicle, Ferenell said.
