Maddy Larson, candidate for
Lake Forest Park city council
position 5
Greetings LFP Friends and Neighbors,

My name is Maddy Larson and I’m excited to let you all know that I am running for Lake Forest Park City Council Position 5. 

Our community is facing demands and pressures that come with the exponential growth and changes we're experiencing in our region. Housing, infrastructure, climate change, pedestrian connection and walkways, ecological stewardship, parks, and public safety are all areas where I can provide progressive and thoughtful leadership. 

I would be honored to represent you and listen to you as your voice on the Council. I will work hard to help our community grow responsibly, provide a green legacy for the future, and thrive without sacrificing what makes Lake Forest Park unique.

My commitment to community service in LFP runs deep. For the past three years I have volunteered to serve on -- and now chair -- our city’s Planning Commission.

In that role I have made citizen participation a priority by encouraging public comment at every Commission meeting, actively listening to our residents, and hosting public hearings. I collaborate with fellow commissioners, the City Council, and city staff to study and tackle significant issues facing our city related to growth, development, housing, and transportation needs.

While serving on the Planning Commission, I helped to shape balanced recommendations for future commercial and residential development of the Town Center, including important provisions for community space such as Third Place Commons. 

Other notable provisions addressed streamside and neighborhood buffers, open space and green space, height limitations, and staying in scale with our community and our environment. Currently I am chairing the effort to examine our existing Accessory Dwelling Unit building code,and developed a community survey to better inform the Commission in its work. My experience in leading the Planning Commission and working directly with our city government, combined with my demonstrated commitment to LFP citizens, will allow me to hit the ground running if you elect me to represent you.

Over the past several decades, I have also been a leader in non-profit and education fields as a dedicated professional. I have successfully led projects benefiting our K-12 communities by working closely with state agencies and legislators, universities, business communities, and granting agencies to benefit these communities. I would like to use this deep and broad base of professional experience to listen, collaborate, and obtain results for our residents.

I ask for your support so that I may represent you and ensure that LFP remains a vibrant community focused on its sustainability and quality of life.


Maddy Larson
