Lake Alfred is nestled between the beauty of eight lakes providing scenic beauty and a variety of recreational opportunities such as boating, skiing, fishing, swimming and picnicking for all ages. The city is enhanced by a strong commitment to the preservation of our natural resources. Lake Alfred's downtown is its heart. It is the architecture, street lighting and landscaping that will make the entire commercial center a place of beauty. New businesses are being attracted to the area due to the positive environment while consumers seek out the unique quality of our antique shops, fine restaurants, and other retail specialty shops. Property values are consistently rising due to the stability, attractiveness and safety of the city. The city has a long-standing commitment to its families and young people as reflected in the goals to plan for, develop and maintain the highest quality of education, community facilities and services. Our neighborhoods are being refashioned with sidewalks and streetlights. New areas of development are incorporating a system of paths and greenways to enhance the natural resources and support the quality of life where families stroll, visit their neighbors and kids play safely in their yards. Lake Alfred is a place where the quality of the community is measured not by size, speed or the stampede after the almighty dollar, but by the clear chiming of the church bell, the admiration for and care of the things others have built, the integrity of those who dedicate themselves to the future of the City and the belief that the next generation deserves our best efforts. Mission: To provide, in a special manner, the citizens of the City of Lake Alfred with quality services that are both reasonable and efficient in cost, while promoting managed affordable growth.
