What Does Lawton, Fort Sill Need To Fix or Change Most?
So if it were left up to you what would be the one thing you would want fixed and/or changed in Lawton, Fort Sill most? I think it's fair to say most, if not all of us, have a list of things we'd like to see addressed.
So what is at the very top of your list? Would it be roads and infrastructure, maybe water, sewer, and electrical upgrades? Or how about economic growth and development? I'm sure some will say more entertainment and things to do. All of which are important and relevant. But if you had to choose one, what would it be?
Lawton, Fort SIll is growing and over the past 5 to 10 years we've seen a lot of positive changes and new businesses moving to the area and opening up. Years ago who would have thought we'd get a Target, Khols, Academy, and some of the other great places to shop and eat. Things are certainly looking up for our happy, humble, medium-sized metropolis that's for sure. And here's the good news, more is on the way!
Like any town or city we have our issues and problems, but overall Lawton, Fort Sill is doing well. Better than a lot of other places, not only in Oklahoma but the Nation. Especially when you consider the past couple of years with the pandemic and everything else that's been going on. We continued to see progress and even new construction and businesses open, despite what was going on. That's quite an accomplishment.
So we do have some positive things happening, but like anything else, the negative always gets the attention. That's just human nature. I mean think about it. If you have a great experience how often do you say something about it? Now, let's say you have a bad experience, you'll tell everyone who will listen. That's just the way it goes. That's not to say it isn't valid, it is and we need to discuss both the positive and negative.
We do have some things in Lawton, Fort Sill that need attention and fixing. For me, the roads are at the top of the list. We have streets in town that eat cars, no joke. In my opinion, there's a lot of work that needs to be done with the city's infrastructure. So if you were in charge and could change or fix just one thing in Lawton what would it be? Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what it would be.
