Village Hall Project Moves Forward...

At a special meeting held June 2, 2014, Lake Orion village council approved the village hall renovation design plans for the new village hall to be located at 21 East Church Street.  The council also authorized administration and Steve Auger and Associates Architects to prepare the construction and bid documents and to proceed to bid out the project.  We are excited about this important project and are working hard to make the new village hall a building with which our citizens can be proud!

Lockhart's BBQ Project continues to move forward...

Had a great meeting today with Drew and Rick to continue working out details for the sale and redevelopment of village hall for their second Lockhart's BBQ location (you can find the first one in Royal Oak).  We can now start drafting the purchase and development agreements.  Things continue to move in a positive direction!

Things are happenin' in the village!

This has been a busy week for the village!  On Monday, the village council accepted the proposal from Lockhart's BBQ for the sale of the current village hall property and redevelopment of the property for an authentic southern style BBQ restaurant similar to the Lockhart's BBQ in Royal Oak.  The council also authorized me to negotiate a development agreement and purchase agreement with Lockhart's and to proceed to solicit proposals for architectural services for building modifications at the Church Street property for our new village hall.  There is still much work to be done before the sale of the property is finalized and the new village hall completed.  However, exciting things are happenin' in the village!

Welcome back, Lions Club Jubilee and Carnival!

The Village of Lake Orion welcomes the Lions Club Jubilee and Carnival back to downtown Lake Orion!  For the past four years, the event had been held in Orion Township.  On February 24, the Lake Orion village council gave its approval for the return of the event to our downtown.  The Jubilee and Carnival will be held from Thursday, June 19 through Sunday, June 22.  We are excited and thrilled to have this cherished family event back in the village, and we appreciate all of the good work the Lions Club does for our community.
