CCOC and Town of Clayton Present Economic Development Update During November 2018 Eggs & Issues Event
Following up on the CCOC Economic Development Committee vision and action plan presentation by CCOC and the Town of Clayton several months ago, our November 28th Eggs & Issues event featured an update on those initiatives and highlighted the development of Clayton districts and a new Clayton marketing and demographic brochure. A future video series was also discussed.
The event presentation was led by Town of Clayton Economic Development Director Dave DeYoung, Town of Clayton Public Information Officer Stacy Beard, and CCOC Economic Development Committee Chair Jim Perricone.
You can view the districts and brochure on CCOC's website at claytonchamber.com/business or on the Town of Clayton's website.
The Town of Clayton created a video of the recent meeting. It can be viewed below.
During its October meeting, the Clayton Chamber of Commerce (CCOC) board of directors discussed and voted to endorse the upcoming Johnston County School Bond Referendum. The bond is set to be on the November 6, 2018 ballot.
"This bond will provide $61 million for Johnston County Public Schools and $15 million for Johnston Community College for much needed improvements, expansions, and additions. Both entities are extremely important components of CCOC's impact agenda, particularly as they relate to current and future workforce solutions for the Clayton community. The passing of this bond will allow Johnston County to finance the cost of the listed projects over a long period of time without a tax increase. We urge Clayton residents to take the time to learn more and vote on November 6, 2018 in favor of this important bond," said President/CEO Dana Wooten.
