Parks & Recreation Master Plan Updates

The City of Lathrup Village and the Planning Commission have started the process of updating the Master Plan, Recreation Plan, and Downtown Plan.

This is an opportunity for residents and business owners to share their thoughts about what they like and what improvements would be beneficial as we move forward as a community.

You are invited to participate in the Recreation Survey and share your vision and suggestions at the December 4th Open House, being held in City Hall from 4pm-6pm. Light refreshments will also be provided.

The City of Lathrup Village is pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Lathrup Village Community Foundation to accept donations for Lighthouse of Oakland County, which has joined forces with South Oakland Shelter to provide a stronger response to poverty in our community. Their goal is to be ‘A New Beacon of Hope’ for those in need and provide a larger reach across all of southeastern Michigan. A donation bin is located in City Hall. Thank you Villagers for your generosity!

As part of this event, we’ve put together a Lathrup Village BINGO card, which will be distributed at the Artisan Fair, as a way to encourage shoppers to visit Lathrup Village businesses. Anyone who gets a BINGO should bring their card back to City Hall for a prize. Anyone who completely fills their card will be entered to win the grand prize.

Local businesses can still sign up to join in! It is free for businesses to participate, they just need to provide Chris with their logo and commit to marking the BINGO card in a unique way. 

Also, related to the BINGO card, we are in need of small giveaways for BINGO (approximately 20). If you have items to donate, please let me know. I’m happy to come pick them up.

Beginning in January 2020, the Lathrup Village Police Department is encouraging all residents and business owners that have a burglary or fire alarm not currently registered with the City, to pick up a registration form. 

It is important that all residents and business owners are aware of the requirement under Article II, Chapter 26 of the Municipal Code. 

The cost of registering your alarm is $20 for 3 years. The information you provide could be vitally important in an emergency situation, if you aren’t at your home or business, and we need to reach you or your emergency contact.

Tis the Season of Caring and Sharing
On September 2, 2019, the City of Lathrup Village lost both a valued police officer and a friend. Officer David Imber died of glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, at the age of 38. David Imber’s life was one of service to his family and to his community. After serving two tours of duty in Iraq, he worked as a corrections officer with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department. In 2017, he joined the Lathrup Village Police Department where he was a much admired and respected officer.
A devoted husband and father, Officer Imber leaves behind his loving wife Julie and two daughters, 4 year old Mia and 14 year old Brooke. The first holiday season without a loved one is an especially hard time of year for those left behind. The Lathrup Village Women’s Club invites you to celebrate this season of sharing and caring by contributing to a holiday fund for Officer Imber’s children.
Donations can be made at the Lathrup Village Women’s Club Holly Luncheon on December 2 nd    at the Municipal Building or by sending a donation to LVWC Treasurer Dorothy Warren c/o LVWC, PO Box 760415 Lathrup Village 48076.
