Over the past several weeks, I have noticed the many hours of study and meetings Lakeland residents volunteer in working for a better Lakeland.
Residents put in countless hours as members of the Park and Recreation Board, Design Review Commission, Municipal Planning Commission, and Economic Development Commission. In addition, residents volunteer for short term projects such as the current Land Development Committee which involves a LOT of time and study.
The Board of Commissioners recently separated the Park and Recreation Board and Natural Resources Board and established the Natural Resources Board as a separate Board.
I was pleased to note the quality and experience of Lakeland residents who volunteered for the Lakeland Natural Resources Board and the possible openings on the Lakeland Park and Recreation Board.
The Mayor and Commissioners and I appreciate the efforts and dedication of our volunteers who commit their personal time and efforts to serving on the volunteer Boards and Commissions and Committees. We literally couldn't do it without you!
Thanks to all the residents who commit their personal time to improving our Community!
