A new tool has been developed for current and future property owners, investors and developers in downtown Clayton. The Downtown Development Association (DDA) has completed its update of the Downtown Master Plan & Design Guidelines and is now available online at www.townofclaytonnc.org.
The updated document includes updated maps, background, design and architectural guidelines. Although much of the original 2001 plan and text remain, the design and architectural guideline components were expanded to provide more clarity to meet the goals of the downtown vision.
DDA Design Committee Chair, Boo Carver said, “This is a good, useful tool to move downtown Clayton forward with public and private investment. “
The development of the master plan has been a public process with workshops held in the spring to review the original plan and get input from property owners, business owners and residents. The final drafts were reviewed again by many of the same participants and presented to the Town Council in the fall.
Professional development of the final version was provided by the developers of 2001 plan, Brian Starkey of OBS Landscape Architects and architect Carl Winstead in Raleigh.
