LFP City Council extends timeline for Town Center planning

Message from the Lake Forest Park City Council regarding Town Center Planning: Extended Timeline and FAQs online

Thanks to all who commented on the Town Center Draft Environmental Impact Statement (Draft EIS). Our staff received, and we’ve read, lots of great feedback. We are grateful to all the residents who took time to review the Draft EIS materials and share their thoughts.

Over the next two months, the Council will be working to identify policy priorities for Town Center based on the VISION, a careful review of comments received during the environmental review process, and the continued public process for the Town Center subarea plan and its development regulations.

We heard the request by some members of the community to extend the time we had originally allotted to publish the Final Environmental Impact Statement (Final EIS) and our deliberations on the plan and regulations. 

The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) recommends a goal of publishing the Final EIS within 60 days of the close of comments on the Draft EIS, and the City will be working toward this goal. This additional time will ensure that we are able to consider the significant amount of public input received.

The Council is moving its schedule for adoption out to the spring, with final deliberations beginning in May. As always, the community is welcome to email, call, or give public comment at City Council regular business meetings.

Be sure to visit YourLFP.com for project updates, including a new document that answers “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) about the Town Center planning process.

Thank you for your continued participation throughout this ongoing process!
