The Downtown Clawson clock tower is getting a makeover, the Clawson DDA reports. . “‘Meet me under the clock’ will now be a much nicer invitation and prettier destination,” the group said in a recent update to their website.

“A planting bed with a seat wall is under construction adding a place for flowers and a spot to sit…. In the seed5977Cyndi Rhuland PeltonenSpring the planting beds will be filled with flowers and the open area facing the intersection provides a spot for an art installation. For the winter the planting bed will be filled with evergreen boughs and a tree will fill the future art space. As a winter bonus, we will add white lights all around!”

Engraved bricks from the walkway around the tower will be preserved and incorporated  into the new design.

Tony Starek of Sunnyside Landscaping has taken on the task, which should be complete by the first week in December.

In the meantime, Downtown Clawson businesses are getting ready for Small Business Saturday. Places like Leon & LuLu, Wunderground Magic Shop, and Warp 9 Comics are among several that will be offering special deals to customers who shop local on Nov. 29.
