Clayton Town Council Approves New Subdivision

Posted May 3, 2005

— Monday night, Clayton Town Council leaders voted "yes" to a new subdivision. But many members of an adjacent neighborhood say it will be at their expense.

Residents fear it will turn a quiet street where people often walk into a congested road and a convenient cut-through.

The Rev. Raymond Pittman said he really has no problem with progress, but does not want to potientially lose someone in the name of doing progressive work. His main concern is that what would be deemed as progress could end up as a community loss.

Housing plans also include an extension of Front Street -- near Central -- to Highway 42.

Town Council members believe opponents did not show compelling evidence that traffic would be too burdensome. They think the move could benefit downtown business. The council promised to look at traffic-calming devices as plans move forward.
