GOAL: The goal is to identify the issues that are important to City residents, neighborhoods, businesses, and organizations to determine how the growth plan should be modified and how City finances and resources should be redirected to address key issues.
The Community & Economic Development Department of the City of Lakeland is facilitating 8 public meetings throughout the City to engage citizens on the importance of our Comprehensive Plan and how it relates to Lakeland’s quality of life. These public meetings are open to anyone who lives, works, shops, or attends school in Lakeland! Attendees will be able to take the interactive survey at the meeting with staff present to answer any questions.
