Help Us Plan for the Future

In addition to the Master Plan discussions Lakeside is facilitating this summer, we are asking the community to provide feedback on the Chautauqua programming that Lakeside offers.

Over the summer, there will be a series of questionnaires to collect your input, specifically related to Lakeside’s program offerings. This Programming Assessment will work hand-in-hand with the Master Plan as we continue to work towards a Lakeside that continues to serve everyone who loves it.

Lakeside Chautauqua is proud of the variety of the programs we offer to guests of all ages, abilities and interests each summer. The feedback you provide to us about your favorite, and not-so-favorite, programs will allow us to make adjustments to our offerings and prioritize which programs Lakesiders cherish the most. We highly encourage all community members, residents and guests, to get involved by completing the Programming Assessment online at

We also invite you to mark your calendars for the next Master Planning Community Workshop from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, July 22 in Hoover Auditorium. The focus of the workshop will be ‘Planning Principles & Preliminary Concept.’ Representatives from MKSK, the Columbus-based planning firm Lakeside has partnered with for the Master Plan, will present their progress on the plan and collect feedback from community members.

All Lakesiders are invited to participate. Through this community engagement, new ideas will emerge, concepts will be refined and community priorities will be identified. This will ensure that Lakeside has future programming spaces, recreational facilities, green spaces, accommodations, retail, transportation and parking solutions, as well as the best use of its existing buildings.

Stay tuned for ways to be engaged in the planning process this summer. For updates, visit

Thank you for your continued feedback and ideas so that we can plan a thriving future for Lakeside Chautauqua.
