Development

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 City of Clayton is a community made up of approximately 13,000 residents and almost 200 local businesses. Our staff believes community and economic development are complimentary pieces to the overall future growth of the City and we work to ensure both aspects are carried out through careful planning and proactive programming.  The goal of both development components is to develop the City in a cohesive fashion.  Growth is vital for both the residential and business communities and staff has spent considerable time developing implementable strategies over the next several years to ensure Clayton follows a smart growth pattern in order to realize our great potential.


N. Main Street Business Incentive Grant ProgramGraphic for Grant Program


The City of Clayton is excited to begin offering its first ever business incentive grant program, specifically for the N. Main Street corridor.  The N. Main Street Commercial Façade program offers a 50% local match for exterior renovations and façade improvements for existing and new businesses along the N. Main Street corridor in Clayton.  Each business grant has a max limit of $15,000 and applicants must qualify to receive the funds.  The program is made available because of a $50,000 CDBG grant from Montgomery County paired with another $50,000 from the City of Clayton.
