Pedestrian and Bike Open House
There will be a second open house on Thursday for the community to view and discuss a proposed plan to improve pedestrian and bike access in downtown Clawson.

About 200 people participated in the survey and 30 showed up for the first open house, Downtown Development Authority Director Joan Horton said. Horton said the entrances to downtown— Main Street, south of Gardner and the intersection at Main Street and Broadacre— will be key focus areas in the plan.
