Release of draft of Lafayette Square Strategic Plan -60 day public comment period begins

June 3 - August 1





Dear Neighbors,

It has been a long stretch since our community workshop in November, 2019 at which time we presented the preliminary results of the Strategic Plan neighborhood survey and announced the intended release of the drafted plan for a public comment period. As with most business, the Covid 19 crisis slowed our work substantially. However, we are pleased to provide the completed draft of the plan to you today (see attachment) along with a short one page summary of the plan, and we invite you to read and comment on it for the next 60 days. Please send your comments to our consultant, Beth Quindry with Shockey Consulting at beth@shockeyconsulting.com by August 1, 2020. Neighborhood feedback is needed as we work to finalize an aspirational and actionable strategic plan for Lafayette Square.

Following the public comment period, a final Plan will be shared with the community at a Strategic Plan Launch Party in late August or early September. We are hoping the Launch can be in person but we are preparing for a virtual Launch Party as safety dictates.

Thanks to all of you who served on the Strategic Plan and Outreach Committees, and especially to our residents, stakeholders and visitors who contributed their time to help us develop our vision for Lafayette Square.

Hope to see everyone safe and soon!
