City of Lake Forest Park moves toward completing the draft subarea plan

From the City of Lake Forest Park

The City has come a long way since it began the planning process for the Town Center in October of 2017. 

After significant community engagement, consultants prepared a draft vision document; this document will eventually become incorporated into the City’s Comprehensive Plan as the subarea plan for the Town Center.

The policies identified in the Town Center subarea plan and the City’s Comprehensive Plan will form the basis for code amendments and design standards currently being developed.

The Planning Commission and the City Council have been working together to finalize both the subarea plan and the code amendments (with attached design standards), with the City Council taking the lead on the subarea plan and the Planning Commission taking the lead on recommending the code amendments.

With the assistance of the Planning Commission at a joint meeting on May 21, 2019, the City Council identified the parameters of the Preferred Alternative (PA) to be studied in the Town Center Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). It is anticipated the FEIS will be published in June 2019.

As the City moves toward completing the draft subarea plan, a public meeting will be held this summer to gather comments on the proposed plan. Similarly, the City will hold a public meeting upon completion of the draft code amendments and design standards. These meetings will be facilitated by the Planning Commission and the City Council.

Specific dates for the meetings have not yet been set.
