A meeting was held on Thursday night to discuss the planned residential development in Downtown Clayton.
The notice for the meeting said the planned development would be on Marsh Creek Rd., just south of Center St. and directly across from Stranahan Circle.
Despite the notice to neighbors saying the plan will include up to 60 condos, the developer, Bill Jordan, says he plans to build 28 townhomes on three lots with 16 secondary units. Jordan describes the secondary units as a “unit connected to a single lot that has cooking, sleeping, laundry, and bathroom. Basically an in-law unit set up with a separate address to be sold within townhouse. It cannot be sold individually.”
Residents at the meeting had questions about zoning. The property was originally zoned agriculture, but it was announced at the meeting the zoning was changed to high-density around the same time the project was originally proposed.
Parking was another issue. Homeowners on Stranahan Circle are saying the project doesn’t have enough parking spots for additional residents, or guests, and they fear people will use Stranahan Circle as an alternative place to park.
The project would also set aside 10% of the housing for low-income residents.
We’ll keep you updated as the project progresses.
