What should be done to make the Village of Lawton a destination? How can the street to be changed to make it more walkable? Where could there be new development, and how should it look? We want to hear from you! Join us on Tuesday, August 11th at the Lawton Fire Station, located at 125 N Main Street, to help us figure out how to Enliven Lawton! Your help is needed to help us create a new vision for downtown.
There will be a team here from Progressive AE (Grand Rapids) all day long to discuss what the future of Lawton might look like with the public and village leaders. Goals for the day include:
* Create a comprehensive vision and plan for downtown Lawton
* Define streetscape functions and elements that will create vibrancy

Arrive for the welcome between 8:30 and 9:00am. Community survey results will be shared, a walking tour of downtown, and an opportunity to vote for a new village logo will occur in the morning from 9am – Noon. Then, between 3:00 – 5:30pm there will be a discussion about community priorities and how land use and transportation work together to shape a downtown. Lawton’s vision and plans will be presented at 5:30pm. Everyone is invited to attend for the day, or just to come and hear the final presentation. Your involvement is important!
