After months of planning, the Detroit Lakes City Council and Development Authority met on January 25th to review the concepts for West Lake Drive. The planning team presented the concepts that emerged from the beginning of the process, changes along the way, and possible implementation strategies. The first draft of the plan will reflect feedback received from that meeting, and be available on this site in late-February.
The Detroit Lakes City Council will meet on Thursday, January 25th to review elements of the West Lake Drive Plan. Concepts have been presented at two open houses, resulting in changes to the plan over the last few months. Now, the city council will review the concepts in the plan. Thank YOU for your input, ideas, and feedback.

Thank you to everyone who attended the open house!
Your feedback is very useful. Did you miss the meeting?
Share your thoughts with us. We want to hear from you.
Thank you! Thank you to everyone who participated in the Design Studio. Your input was extremely helpful and, so far, we sense that we're finding agreement for the preliminary concepts.
What's next? During August and September, the design team will refine the preliminary concepts. The team will then share the refined concepts with the Detroit Lakes Development Authority for review. The intent is to vet the concepts for errors and omissions before hosting a public Open House, which will likely occur in October. We hope that you will be able to attend and provide additional feedback! Stay tuned for the meeting announcement.
