Comprehensive plan process to make significant progress as transmittal to County Commissioners expected this month

RELEASE DATE: June 13, 2006

TAVARES — If the meetings of the Local Planning Agency (LPA) progress as planned during the month of June, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners could begin reviewing the newly drafted comprehensive plan, titled Planning Horizon 2025, by next month.

The LPA is a 10-member committee responsible for assisting in development and revision of the Lake County Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations. Over the past two years, the LPA has monitored the major overhaul of the County’s comprehensive plan. With one public meeting over and three more scheduled for this month, the LPA is expected to finalize its review of the comprehensive plan and transmit the document to the Board of County Commissioners.

The LPA will meet as regularly scheduled on Thursday, June 15, at 9 a.m. in the Board Chambers of the Lake County Administration Building, located at 315 W. Main St., Tavares. The LPA will also meet at 9 a.m. in workshop sessions on June 19 and 21 at the offices of Cnow Inc., located at 28334 Churchill Smith Lane, Mount Dora. For more information about these public meetings, call the Lake County Department of Growth Management, Comprehensive Planning Division, at (352) 343-9632.

The task of drafting the new comprehensive plan is a partnership between Lake County citizens, municipalities, county government and other local and regional entities. Upon completion, the new plan will provide flexible guidelines for policymakers, land managers and land users about how to conserve, rehabilitate or develop an area. Planning Horizon 2025 will stipulate the ultimate goals of efficient transportation, adequate employment, affordable housing, needed capital improvements and access to clean air, water and open space for the next 20 years.
