Clayton staff strives to strategically and smartly grow our safe, beautiful and diverse community by providing excellent emergency services, community oriented programming, local business support and enhancing the public infrastructure, while maintaining our small town character and agricultural roots.

The zoning code regulates land use in City. It helps to protect our property values and quality of life by ensuring that new developments and other improvements are compatible with the surrounding community and neighborhood. Many home and property improvements, such as building an addition, installing a pool, adding a deck or building a shed, require a zoning certificate. 

Jennifer Barclay is the city's Zoning Official. She is responsible for reviewing building and site plans to ensure that they meet Clayton's standards.
