Comprehensive Plan Update

The City of La Center is updating its 20-year Comprehensive Plan, a guide for how La Center intends to accommodate new housing, maintain and attract jobs, develop parks and trails, provide essential services, and more. New subdivisions will be built and major changes will happen at the junction of I-5 and La Center Road.

Here is a link to the updated draft comprehensive plan. Please take some time to review it and feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

Planning Commission Volunteers

The City of La Center is currently accepting applications for the La Center Planning Commission. As a commissioner, you and your peers will be presented with community issues and as a commission you will draft responses to those issues. Your role is to determine whether these responses reflect our community’s values and promote our land use goals.

Interested individuals are asked to submit a letter or email of interest outlining your qualifications and why you want to volunteer to be a Planning Commissioner no later than 5 pm on March 11th, 2016.

Mayor, Greg Thornton (also a previous Planning Commissioner) looks forward to the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your interest in serving on the Planning Commission.
