The Union Neighborhood Vision Plan

Consultation has concluded.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the process. For upcoming Planning Commission and City Council meetings on this plan, please visit LakewoodSpeaks.org.

Union Boulevard, from West Sixth Avenue to West Alameda Avenue, is an active, busy area with office buildings, hotels, apartments, restaurants and numerous other businesses. Changes in the neighborhood and what’s in store for its future have prompted concerns and community conversations about this high-profile area. As a result, Lakewood is launching a community planning effort called the Union Neighborhood Vision Plan to work with the neighborhood to develop a long-range vision for the future.

The goal of this planning effort is to discuss how the neighborhood would like to see the area evolve over the next 20 years, and it will cover the following topics:

  • How should the neighborhood function?
  • What type of uses for the land should be encouraged?
  • What should the design of the buildings look like?
  • What types of amenities are important to enhance the neighborhood?
  • Do there need to be changes to make walking in the neighborhood easier and safer?

We want to involve those who live and work in this neighborhood to develop this plan. This website will help residents, business owners and community members participate in this process and keep them informed about how their ideas and comments are shaping the plan.

You can participate in a number of ways:

  • Attend upcoming community meetings.
  • Take online surveys (click here).
  • Visit the “Ask a Question” section (click here).
  • Visit this site regularly for survey and meeting summaries.
  • Subscribe to this project to receive email updates (right side toolbar).
