Thank you to everyone who came out to our 2nd community meeting on the rezoning for the Lakewood Heights Commercial Center! Much progress has been made a result of this meeting specifically from the MRC Ordinance, engagement activities with community members/stakeholders, and the ongoing discussion on how to improve our study area. As Carla Smith mentioned at the meeting, it is very important for community residents and members to be present at the upcoming public hearings and support this rezoning change. Please check our Meeting Materials section to review the agenda from our 2nd meeting! Stay tuned for more information for the next steps in this rezoning process!

Thank you to all of those who attended our kick-off meeting for the rezoning of the Lakewood Heights Commercial Center!
Our team is currently preparing for the second meeting and updating the website with more details about this process and the kick-off meeting! The second meeting will focus on the various concerns that we heard at the kick-off meeting, the thoughts and recommendations for future changes in permitted uses under MRC (Mixed Residential & Commercial) for the Lakewood Heights Neighborhood Center, and the specific permitted uses the community would like to see in the drafted rezoning ordinance.
