The new ordinance requires all new construction and major renovation projectsof 5,000 square feet or more that are owned, occupied or funded by the City of Clayton to becertified to the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver level.
The City has installed bike racks throughout the Clayton community. It has also recentlycompleted a bicycle “Share the Road” sign project.
