There were three speakers at the 2010 DDA Annual Awards Dinner Monday night.
Town Manager Steve Biggs discussed the completion of the Town Lot Project, which will be officially named soon. He noted that financing of the $300,000 project came from the sale of a Town easement. Mr. Biggs also talked about the Clayton Law Enforcement Center which is under construction in downtown.
Teresa Watts, Assistant Director of the NC Main Street Center told the audience what they could expect when Clayton hosts the NC Main Street Conference in January, 2012. She said 350-400 people will likely attend the conference at the Clayton Center in downtown. Ms. Watts added, “The DDA will be seeking your help in volunteering, sponsorships and coupons and giveaways for conference bags.”

Mayor Jody McLeod said he was very proud of the new parking lot and that is a “new focal point” in downtown. He also said the several hundred people who will be coming to the NC Main Street Conference in 2012, “will be thinking, ‘where is Clayton North Carolina?’ and we will be able to share that best kept secret, and that is what Clayton has turned into.”
