The Clarkdale Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. The Central Business District, a zoning district, lies within this historic designation. The Central Business District originally provided a wide variety of services for residents of the original Clarkdale Town Site.
The Arts & Entertainment District is an overlay district encompassing all of the Central Business District, some adjacent property with commercial zoning and residential property in close proximity to the Central Business District with the potential to transition, through a rezone process, to commercial uses and extending along Broadway Road into the Industrial Zoning District.
