If we really want to enhance the livability and walkability of Howell, we should try to attract a small, locally-run grocery store to open downtown. This would negate the need for residents to drive to Kroger or Meijer on the outskirts of town while enhancing the local economy and promoting a greater sense of community. I enjoy living in downtown Howell but am frustrated at the lack of grocery options within walking distance. The population density in the neighborhoods surrounding downtown should be enough to support a grocery store.
