Big plans are in the making for the town of Lake City. After hiring two firms to identify untapped potential growth in the city, Lake City now has coordinated the findings and designed a complete revitalization plan. Phase 1 consists of making over the National Bean Market Museum and Town Square, adding a Health Care Campus, revamping existing features of the city, adding a Ronald E. McNair Space and Science Museum, a Visitors Center, a new city hall, markets, offices, and renovating Main Street and Sauls Street. This first phase should totally transform the face of Lake City and the lives of its residents. This is a big task for a small town but the rewards should be great. Revitalization should bring more industry and create more tourism, two of the major goals of the city. Along with the revitalization plans there is also a marketing campaign to promote the many changes that will be taking place in Lake City. Plans are in place and funding will be sought to make the plans a reality. In the near future we will see a complete transformation in the small town of Lake City. Lake City will be one of those small southern towns that northerners flock to for retirement.
