Downtown Master Plan

In the fall of 2011, the City of Lake Alfred City Commission unanimously voted to develop a Downtown Master Plan for the City. The goal of the Downtown Master Plan is to provide for:

  • a strong economy
  • a livable, healthy community
  • pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular connectivity
  • continuation of the community’s small town character

The impetus to developing the Downtown Master Plan has been the reconfiguration of the US Highway 17/92 corridor into three-lane one way pairs that divided the downtown area.

This Downtown Master Plan has been designated by the Lake Alfred Community including, residents and businesses, through a series of community workshops and outreach activities. As part of that process, the Community developed a statement to harness their vision of the future of Downtown Lake Alfred.

“Downtown Lake Alfred will be a pedestrian-friendly destination for residents and visitors providing a variety of opportunities to live, work, shop and play in a community with small town charm.”


The Lake Alfred Master Plan was selected for an American Planning Association Florida Award of Merit in the Neighborhood Planning Category.
