Want to make Clayton better? Group seeks input on new plan


A Clayton group that wants to revitalize the city is asking for public input this week on how to implement its 10- to 15-year plan.

The effort, called PLAN Clayton, has four main goals: walkable neighborhoods, central cores, connected parks, and great streets and infrastructures. PLAN Clayton received a $50,000 land bank grant to produce the plan.

Members of the public are invited to a workshop at Council Chambers on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at 6996 Taywood Rd.

TRENDING: All 29 Arby’s restaurants across the Miami Valley are sold

On the city’s website, more information about the proposed PLAN Clayton can be found. Those seeking additional information can contact City Planner Jennifer Barclay at (937) 836-3500.

PLAN Clayton organizers said they are working with residents and land owners, business owners, city staff, council and other organizations within the city on a long-range plan to improve Clayton.
