Lake City is on the cusp of a major transformation through redevelopment of centrally-located properties owned by the Pierre family–many of them car lots. The community has had the benefit of broad and deep studies by UW classes in Community, Environment and Planning.
The first study looked at all of Lake City. The second focuses mainly on the numerous Pierre properties and offers a toolkit of ideas and resources.
