LaGRANGE — As city officials are working to develop a marketing campaign for LaGrange, the Daily News spoke with Mayor Jim Thornton to review suggestions from commenters on a recent Daily News Facebook post.

The post asked followers to respond with ideas or suggestions as to what kind of new businesses or leisure activities they would like to see in LaGrange. Thornton said he agreed with most of the suggestions.

“Most of the suggestions focused on ‘things to do’ in LaGrange, and suggested more trails, parks and recreation amenities, along with more variety of restaurants and retailers,” said Thornton. “These suggestions are consistent with what I’ve been hearing since taking office and also with surveys that the city and Chamber of Commerce have done recently.”

He said that he plans to share the comments with Atlas Advertising, the marketing firm handling the campaign, and city and chamber staff, along with City Council members.
