Participate in a Committee

Community members meet regularly through LCC committees on a range of topics. Whether you are interested in safety, housing, development, the environment, schools, commercial revitalization or other issues, our committees are great forums to bring attention to topics that are important to you and work with others on planning efforts and activities.
