Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Over the last few months, we have heard your ideas and concerns for the future of Lakewood through efforts including the online survey, community conversations, and other engagement activities. As part of the Comprehensive Plan update process, the city is excited to take the next step in developing the Comprehensive Plan by collaborating with community members, Planning Commission, and stakeholders in three Advisory Groups (AG).

The Advisory Groups (AG) will be meeting over the next coming months to help brainstorm and identify solutions brought forward from the community. The advisory groups will help provide valuable, concrete input to the project team to help draft the goals and strategies for the Comprehensive Plan.

The Advisory Groups will include members of the community and Planning Commission and will receive support from city staff and outside experts in a range of applicable subjects. Each group will meet one evening each month in May, June and August, with two additional meetings tentatively planned for October 2024 and March 2025.

The three Advisory Group (AG) will focus on the following areas and topics:

  • Community & Quality of Life Advisory Group: This group will discuss challenges and opportunities related to public health and safety; social services; arts, parks, and recreation, sustainability, community resilience and more. Meetings will be in-person on Wednesday evenings (approx. 3 hours). The tentative dates for the first three meetings are May 29, 2024; June 26, 2024; and Aug. 28, 2024.
  • Housing & Economy Advisory Group: This group will discuss challenges and opportunities related to housing, land use, urban character, decarbonization, economy, workforce development and more. Meetings will be in-person on Tuesday evenings (approx. 3 hours). The tentative dates for the first three meetings are May 28, 2024; June 25, 2024; and Aug. 27, 2024.
  • Transportation, Green Infrastructure & Systems Advisory Group: This group will discuss challenges and opportunities related to how people move or travel around the city, pedestrian and bicycle connections and safety, public infrastructure, climate adaptation and more. Meetings will be in-person on Thursday evenings (approx. 3 hours). The tentative dates for the first three meetings are May 23, 2024; June 27, 2024; and Aug. 22, 2024.
