Welcome to Downtown Lake Orion
Downtown Lake Orion combines a unique, historic central business district with a commercial corridor that extends south along M-24. The Village contains important historic residential and commercial architecture, and is designated a National Register Historic District as of 2006.
Downtown is a destination for numerous annual events, with nearby services, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Historic neighborhoods along the northeast boundary of the core downtown and lakefront add to Downtown Lake Orion’s distinct sense of place.
Community for a lifetime
One of the reason’s Lake Orion is such a special place is because we have very high percentage of people who were born and brought up here, actually STAY here. Instead of growing up and moving out, our residents remain in the area because they appreciate it’s natural beauty, resources and sense of community.
In order to create an “aging-friendly” environment, we’re doing a “Community for a Lifetime” assessment. Developed by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, it’s a 5 minute survey asking questions in order to meet the needs of older adults, their families, and caregivers, in the hopes to attract and retain more residents and be able to provide everyone with a better quality of life.
Please take just a few minutes and fill out this survey so we can make sure our community is meeting your needs for today and tomorrow.
If you would like to fill out the survey by hand, copies are available here at the DDA offices 118 N. Broadway, Lake Orion, MI 48462
If you would like to volunteer to help us with the rest of the assessment, please sign up on our volunteer page (click the link) and someone will get contact you ASAP!
Thank you for your time and dedication to making Lake Orion beautiful and accessible to people of all ages.
OUR MISSION is to enhance the economic potential and preserve the historical character of the Lake Orion DDA District, the heart and hub of the Orion Community, through promotional activities and an organizational structure that focuses on community involvement with local businesses, residents, and other stakeholders.
“Our purpose is to create an environment in which businesses, people and organizations can thrive.” Executive Director Molly LaLone.
