Community Information

A brief overview of the City of Lockwood. Essential services can be found in the member directory.

The Chamber in the Community

Primary focuses of the Lockwood Chamber of Commerce are to support local charities and to contribute to the betterment of our community. Long-term goals include encouraging sustainability and growth of the Community of Lockwood.

The Chamber adopted a "Main Street Beautification" project, with the hope that a well kept Main Street is a prosperous one as well. The Christmas Tree Park on Main Street next to the railroad tracks is the Chamber's most recent effort in this project. [Engraved pavers may still be available in front of the park. Contact the Chamber for information.]

In recent years, the Chamber has purchased a defibrillator for the Ambulance Service , and a "Jaws of Life" unit for the Volunteer Fire Department. The Chamber has also donated to the Lockwood Community Foundation, and the Lockwood Athletic Booster Club Stadium Project.
