Lauzon also owns numerous vacant lots and storefronts sprinkled throughout the city.
His dual, arguably incompatible, roles were on display in June, when Lauzon strong-armed the city council to go into executive session — possibly in violation of the state's open meeting law — to hear about his previously secret plans for Park Center.
If Lauzon gets his wish, all of this real estate will be renovated or removed to make way for a million project dubbed the Park Center, a development of condos, high-end apartments, a grocery store, and a convention center and hotel.

Although his last name is French Canadian, there's a touch of The Godfather in Lauzon, who moved from New Jersey to Vermont as a boy and has spent most of his life in Barre.
