Mayor plans Coffee Shop Tour


14 January 2020

Lawtonians will take to the polls in four weeks to cast ballots in a Special Municipal Election for the proposed 2020 CIP – a program that would allot funding in several areas, to include: Youth development, parks, industry, airport renewal, roads and infrastructure, water treatment upgrades, public transportation, beautification and technology.
Mayor Stan Booker and City Management plan to continue educational endeavors leading up to the election and their latest community engagement project includes a partnership with local coffee shops.

“The Coffee Shop Tour is another great opportunity to connect and engage with citizens, and offer additional information about the CIP,” Booker said. “We want everyone to be aware and informed. We want to make sure all questions are answered. Transparency and accountability are topmost priorities of our office.”

To date, three locations are secured on the tour: Buffalo Grove Coffee Company on January 20, 605 SW E Avenue; White Buffalo Coffee Bar on January 29, 2413 NW Cache Road; Viridian Coffee on January 30, 343 NW Second Street. Each event will be from 7 to 8:30 a.m. The mayor will be available with election literature for city voters.

City officials have spoken to various civic groups and organizations, and have frequented Neighborhood Watch Meetings throughout the community. Additional upcoming public forums will take place January 16, January 21 and January 30. Details, as well as a full breakdown of CIP projects and funding, can be found at
