LFP Citizens form volunteer Citizen's Commission - meeting Tuesday

Sunday, July 31, 2016

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

They report that the Lake Forest Park City Council has been working on a Strategic Plan since mid-2015, and are not expected to finish it until the end of the year.

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.
Organizers have formed this committee to fill the void.

At the Tuesday meeting, they will discuss organizational structure for this LFP Citizen’s Commission. They will create Sub-Groups to address issues of community concern.

They will set up a regular meeting schedule to organize volunteers; recruit, inform, educate, and activate, the current, local, and future community leadership to problem-solve, assess resources, and plan a future that makes Lake Forest Park "a better place to live, work, and visit." 

This meeting will be mostly focused on LFP, but people from other places are also welcome to attend and bring their ideas.
Some things expected to happen out of Future Meetings are:
Addressing Environmental Concerns, Transportation Needs, Issues, and ST3. Youth Support. Organizing Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Planning. Human Services Development, Public Safety and Emergency Management Improvement, Economic Development, Art Appreciation and Neighborhood Association Planning.
