The study process included many opportunities for in-person and virtual public participation, information, and feedback. A wide range of stakeholder engagement tools were engaged to help shape the plan recommendations.
A Lake Center District Steering Committee comprised of area business owners, developers and residents was engaged by the city and consultant through the planning process, meeting several times in 2020 and 2021 to provide feedback and guidance on the study proposals.
Many public engagement activities and feedback opportunities were provided during the study process. The city has received public comments during the entire study process (February 2020-May 2021).
