townofclaytonnc.org, with its constantly updated news and information, has become an excellent way for residents to find out what's going on around town and learn more about Clayton.
The same is true for potential new residents as well as business and industrial executives looking to Clayton as a potential site.
With that in mind, town officials are putting the finishing touches to a series of one-minute video presentations for the web site that promote everything from Clayton's quality of life to its top-ranked schools and real estate opportunities. They replace a series of older presentations that need updating.
"This is an excellent way to tell the world about Clayton," said Deputy Town Manager Nancy Medlin. "Every day, the web site gets hits from all over the region, from states all around us and even from other countries. People are interested in us and want to find out all they can."
The presentations should be added to the web site within the next few days.
Mayor Jody McLeod starts it off with a short "Welcome to Clayton" presentation that outlines some of the reasons that Clayton has become one of the nation's most interesting small towns. Other presentations talk about our quality of life, our real estate opportunities, our top-ranked schools, opportunities here for industry and our growing and vibrant arts and leisure opportunities.
The town also has a new Facebook page--Town of Clayton, NC--that is getting more and more attention.
"Communicating well with our residents, as well as those who might want to relocate here and those considering Clayton for a new business or industry, is one of our top priorities," Medlin said. "This is an excellent place to live and raise a family, as more and more are finding out, and we're an excellent place for business and new jobs-producing industry, too."
