The Clarksville Parking Commission recently adopted a "First Hour Free" program, which supports all on-street metered parking downtown.  A sensor installed in the pavement will detect your vehicle as you arrive and will automatically populate the meter with an hour of free time.  You may then add additional time to the meter, up to a maximum of three hours.
