Clay Township Impact Program

Making an impact on our community

Making an Impact on our Community

Clay Township is embarking upon another community impact program that will greatly improve our parks and our public safety across the entire township. This program will provide benefits for all township residents, schools and businesses and will make our community a better place to live, work and play.

One of the primary initiatives of this program is to update and enhance the existing parks by making them more accessible, safer and available year-round. The building of an indoor sports facility, the construction of a children’s pavilion, and the Carmel Clay Historical Society’s history museum will be exciting new additions included in this program.

Improving our public safety is another major initiative of this program. Updating of fire stations, fire equipment and the expansion of the existing fiber optic ring that connects schools, township facilities and the Carmel Clay Fire Department will be a much needed improvement to the overall safety of the township. The construction of a Carmel Clay Fire Department administration building and fire safety museum are also part of the overall public safety improvements to be included in this program.

The Clay Township Trustee and Board Members have been entrusted with making our township a safer and more enjoyable place to live. They have been tasked with providing vital services to our community and this program is an important part of how they serve the residents of our township.
