CLAYTON, CA (Aug. 16, 2023) — I hope everyone is having a great summer and finding ways to stay cool. While the City Council has canceled some of our summer meetings, as is our practice, I wanted to share a few updates around town.
First, thank you to everyone who came out to National Night Out at Clayton Community Park. The event, organized by the Clayton Police Department, was a perfect opportunity to bring people together.
The goal is to continue fostering the positive relationship between the police and the community. With food trucks, music and weather that cooperated, it was a great way to bring back this event in Clayton. It was also a showcase for the new playground equipment, which was recently installed as a result of grants and a generous donation from the Clayton Valley/Concord Sunrise Rotary.
Our police put on a wonderful event, and I look forward to next year.
Clayton will be hosting the monthly Contra Costa County Mayor’s conference on Sept. 7 at Oakhurst Country Club. All are welcome to the 6:30 p.m. business meeting, where there will be a presentation by Climatec and their work with the city of Clayton on energy resiliency.
This event brings together mayors from each of the cities in Contra Costa County. For more information, see www.ccmayors.org.
School is starting and with it means busy times on our streets during pick up and drop off times, and with new student drivers. Please be aware, watch your speed and give yourself extra time as you drive.
Our summer Concerts in the Grove series will be wrapping up soon. Performances are every other Saturday through Sept. 16. See the city of Clayton’s website to learn more or go to https://claytonca.gov/fc/Concerts-In-The-Grove-2023.pdf.
