CLAYTON – The Town of Clayton is developing its first-ever Comprehensive Transportation Plan, called Clayton on the Move. The plan will identify the Town’s long-term vision for the local transportation network, including roadways, public transit, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
As the town continues to grow, it is important to envision and plan for necessary transportation investments that will fit the community’s needs and will serve residents, employers, and visitors.
“The Clayton on the Move Comprehensive Transportation Plan is our blueprint for a brighter future,” said mayor Jody McLeod. “It’s not just about roads and sidewalks; it’s about connecting our community, fostering growth, and ensuring Clayton remains a great place to live for generations to come.”
According to Town of Clayton Communication Director Nathanael Shelton, at the heart of Clayton on the Move is community engagement.
“We believe that the best solutions come from the people who call Clayton home,” said Shelton. “That’s why we’re calling on all residents to participate in our online survey. Their input will shape the future of transportation in Clayton.”
The survey is available now until Dec. 16 to collect information about:
- Transportation projects that should be prioritized
- Locations in Clayton that need transportation improvements
- Preferences for different modes of transportation Take the survey now at: https://metroquestsurvey.com/gx5t5v?c=M
In addition to the online survey, the community is invited to connect with the Clayton on the Move planning team in-person at pop-up events throughout the town.
“These pop-up events will provide a unique opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with the experts shaping the Clayton on the Move Plan,” said Shelton. “During these events, participants can share their ideas, concerns, and vision for our town’s transportation network.”
All upcoming public engagement opportunities with the Clayton on the Move team will be shared on the Town’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan website: www.townofclaytonnc.org/CTP
