General Plan Advisory Committee

 

Overview
The City of Lake Forest is assembling a General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) to advise the City on the topics and issues addressed in the General Plan. The GPAC will serve as an important channel for the community to provide input and make recommendations regarding the General Plan Update. The Lake Forest General Plan will address the following topics: land use, mobility, open space, conservation, public safety, noise, community design, economic development, environmental justice, and community health and wellness (please note that the City already has a state-certified Housing Element that will not be updated as part of this project).
