At their meeting on April 7, 2014, the City Commission approved the recommendation from City staff and DRMP to proceed with the East Segment Only - A alternative that was identified at the March 6, 2014 public meeting. Commissioners also approved a task authorization with CivilSurv Design Group, Inc., an engineering consultant located in Lakeland, to complete construction plans for this project and to evaluate the potential of constructing a multi-purpose trail between Carpenter's Way and Lakeland Park Center Drive. This new project will be named the "Lakeland Park Drive Connector".
On March 6, 2014, the City of Lakeland held a Public Meeting for the Lakeland Park Drive Extension Project. The public meeting was conducted to present the findings of the re-evaluation and to obtain input from elected and appointed officials, property owners/tenants, business owners/operators, and other interested parties.
A handout of the material is available here. The power point is also available here.
