Clayton Main Street Vision Forum Set For April 24

NC Main Street Director Rodney Swink and Clayton Downtown Development Association Chair Joyce Blackley.

Clayton residents are invited to participate in the “ M ain Street Vision Forum” on Tuesday, April 24 from 7pm to 9pm at The Clayton Center. The public is invited but everyone needs to register ahead of time so there are adequate materials and nametags. The forum-workshop will be facilitated by NC M ain Street Director, Rodney Swink and Assistant Director, M eg Dees . During the forum, participants will be divided into groups and develop lists of downtown Clayton’s strengths and weaknesses. From those lists, the participants will develop individual and group vision statements which will be shared at the end of the workshop. From that, the Downtown Development Association (DDA) will synthesize the best themes and ideas to forge a single vision statement for downtown Clayton. The DDA is hoping between 75 to 100 people will participate in the Vision Forum. DDA Chair Joyce Blackley said this is a very important event in that DDA’s future plans of work and NC M ain Street ’s future assistance will be based on the visioning that takes place at this event. “Downtown Clayton is the social and cultural center of the whole town and belongs to everyone in town, so we really need participation from residents and property owners from throughout Clayton,” Blackley said. If you would like to participate in the M ain Street Vision Forum, contact Joyce Blackley at 919-553-6813 or Downtown Development Coordinator, Bruce Naegelen , at 919-553-1545 or
