Downtown Master Plan

On November 23, 2010, the Board of Aldermen adopted the proposed updates to the Downtown Clayton Master Plan. Consultants Sasaki Associates, Inc. in association with Economics Research Associates/AECOM proposed the updates and revisions in conjunction with an action plan for Downtown Clayton resulting from a retail and marketing study.

The plan adoption followed a comprehensive year-long process of problem identification, establishment of priorities, information gathering, data analysis and plan preparation and review. Key events during the planning process included public input sessions, meetings and hearings, and presentations to the Plan Commission, Economic Development Advisory Committee and Board of Aldermen.
