DDA Schedules Review of Updated Downtown Master Plan on Monday

A draft of the updated Downtown Master Plan layout will be available for review on Monday, August 23 at 10:00 am and 6:30 pm at The Clayton Center in Room GS223. The presentation will be the same at each session with the same opportunity for feedback.

The Downtown Master Plan concentrates on the commercial district of downtown from Robertson Street to US 70 Business. Downtown Development Coordinator Bruce Naegelen said, ”The master plan provides a general framework for the development of downtown and to provide reasonable certainty and predictability for investors.” He added, “The architectural and design guidelines are also being updated and will help shape growth in a way that preserves Clayton’s character.”

This past spring about 25 downtown business and property owners, as well as others attended two workshops to provide input into updating the 9 year old plan. Mr. Naegelen said there aren’t many significant changes in the layout, but the feedback was very helpful.

If you are planning to attend either workshop, please contact Mr. Naegelen at 553-1545 or
