Five new master planned neighborhoods are coming to Lake Forest in the next few years. These new neighborhoods are part of the city's Opportunities Study. The Opportunities Study Area is a comprehensive planning process that the City of Lake Forest has undertaken to re-zone nearly 800 acres of land zoned for business and industrial use on 5 properties in Lake Forest.
New Zoning Plans
The zoning changes allow for a new plan with residential uses and facilities such as a sports park and community/civic center. A total of 4,000 new housing units will be built as part of the Opportunities Study.
