Lakewood strategic housing plan
Greetings Eiber neighbors,
The City of Lakewood has released the draft of their Strategic Housing Plan, a document that is intended to guide future decision making and policy regarding residential development in the city.
The plan will be available online until June 20 for viewing and providing comment at https://www.lakewoodtogether.org/housingstrategy. It will be presented to City Council for endorsement sometime in July. Once adopted, it will influence the policy going into the upcoming review and revision of the city’s Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance over the next couple years. This is basically the city’s wish list and they’re asking for Council to give them the green light.
Please take some time to review this document and the comments. We believe this plan deserves careful scrutiny. City Council needs to hear from its constituency on this topic now, not just from city staff. This is our best opportunity to help guide this discussion. Up to this point, the city’s outreach to neighborhoods and community organizations in this process has been very limited.
Go to https://www.lakewoodtogether.org/housingstrategy now to review and comment on this plan. And please spread the word to your neighbors.
