Lawton 2025 Visioning Summit

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton-Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce welcomed input from the community in hopes of developing a vision for the city's future.

The Lawton 2025 Visioning Summit took place at City Hall Wednesday morning. The event offered residents, business owners, city and economic development officials, and heads of the health and education sectors, a chance to share what they feel success will look like for the City of Lawton in the next 10 years.

"It's important to Lawton to have that common vision so we have a future, to know where we're going. As Yogi Berra once said if you don't know where you're going you may end up somewhere else," said Barry Albrecht.

The two hour summit resulted in the following vision statement:

"Located in the foothills of the Wichita Mountains, Lawton Fort Sill is the center of commerce in southwest Oklahoma. We are a place where heritage, individuality and diversity are embraced and respected. We are an engaged, healthy & progressive community, a safe place to live, learn, work, play and prosper. The City of Lawton Fort Sill welcomes all.”
