Neighborhood/Homeowner Associations will be able to place signs at major entrances advising residents of Association meetings under a Resolution currently under consideration by the Board of Commissioners.
The Mayor and Commissioners realize that neighborhoods are the basic building block of Lakeland and strong active neighborhoods are essential to our community and communication is a key to a strong association.
The Board of Commissioners is considering a Resolution at the meeting on Thursday, June 12, 2008 to provide for Neighborhood Associations and Homeowner Associations to post notices of meetings at each main entry to a neighborhood. The notices could be posted for short periods before the meeting.
The current proposal is that a simple, no charge permit could be approved by staff for one professionally made sign not exceeding 9 square feet (the size of a typical real estate sign) to be posted at each approved major entry way into a subdivision for several days before a meeting. The purpose of the sign would be to provide notice of the meeting to residents.
The concept was discussed at the Board of Commissioners Work Session and will be considered for possible adoption at the Thursday, June 12, 2008 Regular Meeting. As soon as the draft Resolution is prepared and sent to the Board of Commissioners, the Resolution will be available for public review. Residents are welcome to attend the meeting at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 12, 2008 at Lakeland City Hall.
