The premise is simple. We post a picture of an empty storefront or property in Lakewood. We’ll provide a map, along with other information. In the comment section, users tell us what they’d like to see.
The City will pass along suggestions to the owner of the building or property. Who knows? Your suggestion could spark what ultimately ends up there.
The first edition of “What Should Go Here?” features a storefront that is familiar to many in the community. It’s the site of the former G.I. Joe’s location at Lakewood Towne Center, 5831 Main St. SW.
The building is located along 59th Avenue Southwest and is a short walk away from Towne Center’s busiest businesses, including AMC Lakewood Mall 12 Theater, Barnes & Noble and Burlington Coat Factory. It’s also across the street from Lakewood City Hall.
In one day, users offered more than 60 suggestions for the space on Facebook. Great job, everyone!
