The Lee Highway Planning process continues to advance, outlining the community’s vision for the future of the corridor. Thanks to those who have joined us for a recent neighborhood focus group meeting or attended the bi-weekly design studio at the Lee Highway Alliance (LHA) offices. Over the summer, please join us for additional focus group meetings, our planned educational forum, or one-on-one visits in the design studio (every other Friday,12-3:30 p.m., 4620 Lee Highway, Suite 208). Your thoughts and perspectives will help shape our planning activities, including the existing conditions workshop planned for the fall. Thank you for your continued interest and engagement. Please reach out to me or staff to be more involved.
