Your City. Your Civic Center. Your Voice.

Building Community,
Building Opportunity.

The Lake Forest Civic Center Project is a multi-year effort focused on the design and construction of the new Civic Center. The 8-acre Lake Forest Civic Center will be located in the center of the community, south of Commercentre Drive at the end of Indian Ocean Drive, which will be officially renamed "Civic Center Drive" next year. This page will keep you updated on all the latest project news. We hope you find the resources on this page useful, and if you’re ever unable to find what you’re looking for, please send us an email or give us a call. We look forward to working with you!
Civic Center Planning Principles
  • Reflect Lake Forest. Emphasize the pastoral landscape, natural topography, and unique history that set Lake Forest apart from its neighbors. 
  • Be a destination. Develop the Civic Center complex as a destination through site location, architecture, and landscaping. 
  • Provide new amenities. Prioritize services at the Civic Center currently unavailable to the community. 
  • Accommodate multiple uses. Design the Civic Center buildings and amenities to accommodate multiple uses whenever possible.

Time lapse video coming soon!
