Since 2012, a Core Team of Colony Park and Lakeside residents have been active in the Colony Park Sustainable Community Initiative–advocating for increased amenities and public services.

Over the course of the project, the Core Team has contributed to the project by:

  • Attending project meetings consistently for over 4 years;
  • Writing the initial Public Engagement Plan;
  • Participating in the selection of the Master Plan Design Team;
  • Reading and proofing the Master Plan and Guideline documents;
  • Advocating for a community-focused vision in Colony Park.
