Citizen dialog for transparent process
When somebody wants to rezone next to you, or pave your road,
how do you know if you want it or not, and what can you do about it?
When class sizes increase or test scores are mysterious, is it
just your school and family or are others having questions too?
Builders and developers and their associations talk to local governments
all the time, so they already know. Ordinary citizens need the same
kind of organization and access. LAKE aims to provide such transparency
through citizen involvement and publishing information on the web
and through the press.
More generally, how can the local county and city governments
and the numerous local boards preserve and promote quality
of life equally with growth and development?
LAKE helps find out what's going on and help make it visible.
With this county-wide perspective, LAKE can assist in
planning and strategy for the county as a whole.
Join us and help make Lowndes County and the region
a better place to live, work and play!
