The City of Lake Alfred is pleased to announce the Lake Alfred Master Plan has been selected for an American Planning Association Florida Award of Merit in the Neighborhood Planning Category.
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.”
