Lynnhaven Strategic Growth Area Vision Drafted

City Invites Input on Phase Three – Deciding the Future

Monday, December 05, 2011

On Wednesday, Dec. 14, at 6:30 p.m. the public is invited to a meeting in the Lynnhaven Elementary School cafeteria, 210 Dillon Drive, for the third and final phase of shaping the future of the Lynnhaven Strategic Growth Area (SGA).  An initial draft, long-range vision for the Lynnhaven SGA will be presented and preferred development alternatives selected.   Please join us for this important meeting to continue to give your input and ideas, and help create a community of lasting value.

The City’s Comprehensive Plan designates eight SGAs to be planned to accommodate and absorb the city’s future urban-type growth.  Beginning in September, the city held the first round of public meetings for input on the Lynnhaven SGA Plan.  During these meetings, civic leaders, business owners, property owners, residents and student leaders communicated and drew on maps the positive features of the Lynnhaven SGA and talked about what should be improved in the future.  This resulted in a set of community-derived design principles for the SGA.  Based on those principles, a week-long design workshop was held in early October to sketch initial future concepts for the SGA and to obtain more specific public input.  The result of that input is a proposed new vision for the Lynnhaven SGA.
