Your Chamber in the NEWS: Ware On C
Posted by: Communications Manager on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 12:00:00 am
Downtown Lawton was dealt a heavy blow when much of the area was demolished in the 1970s as part of urban renewal. The goal was to redevelop what critics complained had become a seedy bar district into a place that families could meet and shop.
But now the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce and downtown businesses are launching a new effort to breathe life into downtown. The Ware District comprises a swath of the central business district stretching from Elmer Thomas Park to Central Mall, from east of Railroad Street to City Hall. That’s a huge area, so the initial effort will be along C Avenue from Southwest 2nd Street to Southwest 7th. The first event, on Thursday, will be between 4th and 5th Streets.
