Lake Forest Park Community Visioning & Comprehensive Plan Update
We led a consultant team in working with the City of Lake Forest Park to update their Comprehensive Plan. Starting with early outreach, we helped community members develop their shared vision of what Lake Forest Park should be like in the future. This approach leveraged existing community networks — meeting with people where they already gather — in civic groups, at schools and public events and at local meeting places. The outcomes of the community visioning process served as the foundation for the plan update. We served as the lead author and provided guidance and support to ensure the updated plan reflected the community vision, current information and new state and regional policy requirements. We also revamped the look and feel of the plan, transforming it into a full color, reader-friendly document with photos, maps and infographics.
