Clayton Seeks To Shape Future Of Town’s Transportation

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

  1. Step 1: stop building massive housing complexes.
    Step 2: No trucks down the middle of Main Street.
    Step 3: have red light cameras at 70 and 42, 42 and Castleberry, 42 and Buffalo and anywhere at 40 42

    • Red light cameras are a legal nightmare. This is not a solution- unfortunately. Private companies run them and they are never calibrated. It’s a civil issue as well and not criminal. Trucks aren’t allowed on main st and haven’t been for decades already.- deliveries are permitted- but that’s obvious why. But would be great to have restricted hours. Not sure how that could possibly be enforced but it’s a wishful thinking idea.
      Agree with the housing complexes. I’ll go one step further- stop the apartments and townhouses too! Stop building homes on smaller and smaller lots as well.
