About Us


Neighbors for a Sustainable LFP is a non-partisan, resident-based citizen group who wants to ensure that our City remains livable, affordable, and sustainable. While we absolutely agree that our City needs safe street sidewalks and parks, we disagree with the City Council's proposed funding approach for these much-needed improvements.


We believe there's A BETTER WAY to get the safety features and amenities our citizens need, in the same or less time, while making our City Council transparent, accountable, and responsible.

Our individuals have been actively following the city's developing plans for these projects for over 4 years, researching meeting transcripts, and attending community input sessions in an effort to be as informed as possible. Our goal is to encourage, support, and promote the most responsible and effective decisions for Lake Forest Park citizens.

Our mission is to provide a complete, truthful overview of all aspects of Proposition 1 that enables our citizens to make an informed decision on their upcoming ballots (all ballots due on or before November 2, 2021).
