Goal #1. Meet the needs of the community by offering a variety of high quality and engaging programs, services and initiatives.

almost 3 years ago

The Imagine Lakewood! resident survey revealed that Lakewood residents love their programs. About 80% of residents said it is essential or very important to provide arts, parks and recreation programs for children and youth, as well as programs for people with special needs and swimming/water activities for people of all ages.

To achieve this goal, we will:

    a.Plan for future program development to increase opportunities to residents throughout the City.

    b.Create a plan to meet the increasing need for transportation for our aging population and growth in youth/teen activities and events.

    c.Establish best practices related to diversity and inclusivity to promote use of and participation in Community Resources facilities, activities and events and explore options related to bilingual signage and promotional materials.

    d.Remove financial barriers to participation by educating residents on various financial assistance opportunities available for all Community Resources facilities and programs.

    e.Create a plan to meet the community's interest in community theater.

    f.Update Lakewood's Cultural Plan to further enhance arts and culture throughout the community.

    g.Strengthen community partnerships to assist in meeting identified needs across the community.

I've seen two performances at the Edge/Bench Theater. Both were incredible! My only concern is the two 3" steps to get into the theater. As one of the many wheelchair users in Lakewood, a small ramp into the building would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for focusing on growing transportation to meet demands. I think that's really important to that people can live in their homes as they get older. Pretty cool to also think about teens with regards to transportation too. I'm also a big fan of community theater so yay!
