A group of Lake Forest Park residents has formed a volunteer Citizens' Commission to "meet, deliberate City business, issues, and interests, support each other and work on specific projects targeted to make Lake Forest Park an exceptional place to live, visit, and work."
They invite the community to join them on Tuesday evening at Third Place Commons at Town Center, 7-9pm for a National Night Out event. Included on the agenda will be:
- A Brief Crime Prevention Discussion
- The Future of Optional LFP Commissions
- Tree Ordinance Update
- Organizational Structure for the Commission
Therefore, the City Council has chosen to “Pause” the Non-Mandated Commissions in Lake Forest Park for 3 months, and then for another 3 months, for a total of 6 months. They are considering retiring them, and instead using Task Forces as needed. They hope this will give them and the City Staff time to work on the Strategic Planning.
This meeting will be mostly focused on LFP, but people from other places are also welcome to attend and bring their ideas.
