INVITATION
TO
VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE

We invite you to visit our Lathrup Village Virtual Open House which will run until May 25th

The Virtual Open House is a very interactive format for sharing your thoughts on important topics, including:

TRANSPORTATION : How do people travel in and around the city? Are important destinations, including parks, schools, city facilities and commercial areas connected to residential neighborhoods?

NEIGHBORHOODS : How can the city's neighborhood units better serve the residents who reside within them? How can improving walkability in neighborhoods improve the overall walkability of the city.

COMMERCIAL CORRIDORS: How healthy are the city’s commercial corridors (Southfield Road and the mile roads)? Do they serve the needs of city residents? What does the appearance of the corridors say about the community?

Visit https://arcg.is/rzn88 to participate in the Lathrup Village Virtual Open House! Please be sure to share this invitation with your friends, family, and neighbors.

SOUTHFIELD CORRIDOR CLEAN UP
Saturday, June 6th
9am-12noon

The Southfield Corridor Cleanup is part of the partnership with the Road Commission for Oakland County and their Adopt a Road program. The Lathrup Village Downtown Development Authority (DDA) leads this collaborative volunteer effort. The collective capacity of volunteers is especially needed this year, with many businesses not being open or fully staffed, in order to beautify our main business corridor.

We greatly appreciate the volunteers who participate each year! Masks, gloves and materials will be provided, along with light refreshments!


To volunteer, contact:

RECREATION DEPARTMENT
RECREATION PROGRAMMING & PLAYGROUNDS

After careful consideration and in compliance with the Governor's executive orders and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, the City of Lathrup Village has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person Parks & Recreation programming, events, and activities through August 31 2020.

Everyone is reminded during the holiday and summer that PLAYGROUNDS ARE CLOSED in accordance with CDC guidelines, U sing playgrounds might lead to the spread of COVID-19 because:
  • They are often crowded and could easily exceed recommended guidance for gatherings.
  • It can be challenging to keep surfaces clean and disinfected.
  • The virus can spread when young children touch contaminated equipment and then touch their hands to their eyes, nose, or mouth.

PARKS ARE OPEN - for individual fitness activities, such as walking and jogging. Visitors are reminded to continue to observe the CDCs minimum recommended social distancing of at least 6 feet from other individuals, if they do not live in your household.
Join the challenge and support your town.

What is it?
