LFP Mayor: Sustainability of Our Amenities and Infrastructure

Lake Forest Park has eight developed parks and has recently purchased its newest park property on the north shore of Lake Washington, which is still in need of public planning, design and construction phases. 

We have also heard from residents that additional sidewalks are an important piece of infrastructure for our community.

As we all know, everything comes at a price and, as we move forward, I along with the City Council and residents, must give some serious thought to decisions on how we will pay to maintain current amenities and construct the new ones desired by the community. 

This summer, we will begin discussing the 2023-2024 biennial budget and a big part of that discussion will be financial sustainability and how we will pay for the things we already have and the things we want moving forward.

It's time to roll up our sleeves and work together to figure out the path we take moving forward — how do we sustain what we have and develop new projects. 

An opportunity for you to share your thoughts with me about that is at the upcoming Coffee with the Mayor event. We are getting closer to determining a date, time, and location, and will advertise the information once it has been decided upon. 

I really look forward to meeting with you in person again. Please consider using the Coffee event as an opportunity to share your ideas with me.

If you would like to receive an email update once the details of the Coffee event are confirmed, please email the Deputy City Clerk.

--Mayor Johnson
