Downtown Master Plan

Lake Alfred Downtown Master PlanIn the fall of 2011, the City of Lake Alfred City Commission unanimously voted to develop a Downtown Master Plan (PDF) for the City. The goal of the Downtown Master Plan is to provide for:

  • a strong economy
  • a livable, healthy community
  • pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular connectivity
  • continuation of the community's small-town character

The impetus to developing the Downtown Master Plan has been the reconfiguration of the U.S. Highway 17/92 corridor into three-lane one-way pairs that divided the downtown area.

This Downtown Master Plan has been designated by the Lake Alfred Community, including residents and businesses, through a series of community workshops and outreach activities. As part of that process, the Community developed a statement to harness their vision of the future of Downtown Lake Alfred.

"Downtown Lake Alfred will be a pedestrian-friendly destination for residents and visitors providing a variety of opportunities to live, work, shop and play in a community with small-town charm."


The Lake Alfred Master Plan was selected for an American Planning Association (APA) Florida Award of Merit in the Neighborhood Planning Category.
