City of Clayton officials have been discussing the idea of having a regional multi-use path since 2010. The benefits of having such a path were highlighted at the city council’s April 4 workshop session. Some of those benefits include:
- Opens up Englewood MetroPark to runners and connects Clayton to Englewood and complements the Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission’s regional multi-use path plans.
- Puts infrastructure in place where all areas of the city are served.
- Assists in attracting a new Dayton Metro Library to the North Clayton area. Plus, students will be able to walk from schools to the library and the YMCA safely.
- Will assist with the community’s health and wellness needs.
Council will have a chance to vote on the $350,500 project at its April 18 meeting.
