L.F.P. Citizens’ Commission - N.G.O. (non-government organization)
Social - 3rd Public Meeting Tuesday, 6:30pm
A group of Lake Forest Park residents has met and 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."
The group is a Non Government Organization, not sponsored by the City of Lake Forest Park.
We invite the community to join us on Tuesday evening, at Third Place Commons in Town Center, at 6:30p.m. for an Informal Cookie Social followed by a Public Meeting from 7:00-9:00pm. We will be meeting in the Stadler Room, or near the ChalkBoard, if the Stadler Room is not available.
Included on the agenda will be items addressing the unfinished Work Plans of four suspended Commissions along with updates of current City Council Projects, events, and local happenings.
- Transportation: ST3 and 25-Year Plan, Complete Streets
- Community Service: 211 System, Park's Task Force Update, Adopt-a-Park / Tree Programs, C.E.R.T. Training / Emergency Preparedness Workshop Information
- Environmental Quality: Tree Ordinance Update / Interim Development Regulations (Tree Permit Moratorium), Tree Planting Group
- Economic Development: local Business Networking Group, Build local Business Directory
The four former Commissions were Retired while the Lake Forest Park City Council focused on their Strategic Plan.
Mike Dee, a Co-organizer of the new commission, says that the City is now focusing on task forces, like the new Parks Task Force, to work within the recently Voted on, and approved, Strategic Plan and the commissions will remain in retirement during that time.
This group has formed to fill the void, by providing an forum for citizen discussion, participation, and action.
Meetings are the first and third Tuesdays of the month, 6:30-9:00pm with the fourth Tuesday (Town Hall Tuesday) 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, bring their ideas, and cookies.
