New landscaping, irrigation at City Hall
Fresh landscaping and outdoor beautification efforts are underway at Lawton City Hall thanks to the generosity of the McMahon Foundation and Lawton Enhancement Trust Authority (LETA).
The McMahon Foundation awarded a grant to LETA in March to finance the landscaping and an irrigation system; the project is valued at more than $47,000.
“We are grateful the McMahon Foundation shares our vision of beautifying the Lawton community,” said LETA Executive Director Richard Rogalski. “Years ago, the City of Lawton was able to restore and enhance Lawton High School – our current City Hall. We saved an amazing monument in our community. Now, with the help of the McMahon Foundation, we will be able to address the surrounding area at this beautiful, historic structure.”
Landscaping will include a flowerbed at the main entryway and 4,400 feet of irrigation pipe in all lawn areas. LETA will take steps to further develop the lawn following irrigation system installation.
“This opportunity came to us right at the Spring planting season, so we are really excited about that,” Rogalski said, commenting that the project is expected to be complete in 2-3 weeks.
LETA, a community partner of the City of Lawton, is dedicated to beautifying and esthetically enhancing the appearance of Lawton. Other LETA-funded projects at City Hall have included the purchase of an outdoor bronze bison statue and installation of outdoor tree lighting.
