City looking for input from residents


CLAYTON – The City of Clayton is in the process of updating their Comprehensive Land Use Plan. They need residents to speak up on issues and concerns surrounding the community.

Comprehensive planning is a process that determines community goals and aspirations in terms of community development. The outcome will dictate public policy in terms regarding land use.

The process of comprehensive planning is to identify issues, state goals, collect data, prepare a plan, create an implementation plan, evaluate alternatives, adopt a plan, and implement and monitor the plan.

The City is working with Urban Collaborative, a consultant, who is helping in conducting interviews and the overall process.
