LFP “Big Five” Coffee Meeting Saturday Nov 4

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Mayor will be joined by other
elected officials on Saturday
Mayor Jeff Johnson said he had a “crazy idea” one day and that was to bring the salmon back to the City of Lake Forest Park creeks and streams.

Today that idea is coming alive with much more as City elected officials host a coffee on Saturday, November 4th from 9:00am to 10:30am at LFP City Hall Council Chambers to answer questions about the “Big Five” planning efforts.

Mayor Johnson said that he is looking forward to following through with the City Council Strategic Plan and all the “Big Five” visions they have outlined, as well as taking action to create regulations that helps anyone who wants to “invest in us” to do that in “the right way.”

City elected officials are wanting to hear your questions about all this.

What are the “Big Five?” They represent planning across the entire City. 
Ideally they will all interrelate together to bring solutions and ideas to enhance our community and improve living conditions going forward and into the next 50 years.

1.  Central Subarea Plan
The coming of Sound Transit’s bus rapid transit (BRT) and a proposed park-and-ride structure to be built in the vicinity of the Town Center or somewhere in LFP, has initiated a plan that will include visioning and helping to shape a new Central Subarea Plan. The entire Town Center area will be examined for redevelopment and is a central part of this plan’s discussion.

2.  LFP Safe Highways

Focuses on developing options to make both SR 104 and SR 522 safer and better, while accommodating transit, pedestrians and bicycle riders.

3.  LFP Safe Streets
