Clayton is set to build a $3.5 million pedestrian tunnel and greenway extension into Downtown Clayton! Construction has closed Legend Park and will mean temporary shutdowns of O’Neil Street and the Sam’s Branch Trailhead and parking area - exact dates have not been determined. The greenway will now connect to Legend Park, giving walkers, runners and bicyclists a safe and scenic trail into Downtown Clayton.

Council Approves Historic Budget
Town Council marked Clayton's historic transition from a small to medium-sized town with the 4-1 passage of the 2019 Fiscal Year Budget, which will leverage $70 million dollars of investments in streets, public safety, and parks and recreation over the next decade. The budget, which holds the Clayton tax rate at $0.58, coincides with the state-mandated Johnston County revaluation year, which brought up property values throughout the area and will result in higher annual tax bills. This budget is expected to impact the average Clayton resident by adding about $28.66 more a month in increased utility and Clayton property taxes.
