The Clayton Strategic Plan provides a vision of Clayton as a sustainable, welcoming community comprised of desirable neighborhoods, attractive green space, diverse artistic, cultural and recreational opportunities and a multi-model transportation system, all of which foster a safe, healthy and enriched quality of life.

Sustainability is most often defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.

  • Solar Energy Report
  • Energy Benchmarking
  • Sustainable Building Practices
    • The Clayton Green Sheet is available to provide information on sustainable development resources to Architectural and Site Plan Review applicants. Energy efficient buildings that are designed, constructed and operated for optimal performance and resource conservation are able to demonstrate reduced negative environmental impacts, improved occupant well being and profitability from energy savings.
    • Clayton gets its first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building.  Many projects in Clayton are registered for LEED certification, but Shaw Park Plaza at 1 N. Brentwood Boulevard is the first to become certified for Existing Building Operations and Maintenance.
