Lynnwood Held City Center Streetscape Open House

On February 13, 2014, the City of Lynnwood held a community open house at City Hall to discuss design elements for the public right-of-way (streetscape) in the City Center. Area stakeholders, community leaders and interested parties turned out for the event and joined in the conversation.

City Center streetscape elements include pedestrian-scale lighting fixtures, paving, public seating, public art and more. The design standards are being created for new public improvements and new private development within the Lynnwood City Center.

The City will utilize the comments received at the open house to develop the Plan that will guide the enhancement of the Lynnwood City Center environment and support redevelopment objectives.

A follow-up open house will be held near completion of the Streetscape Plan to discuss the elements in greater detail.

About the City Center Streetscape Plan
The City Center Sub-Area Plan recommends that streetscape standards be established. The design elements of the streetscape are needed to provide private and public development standards, consistency along the public connections and to create a more livable environment and support redevelopment objectives of the City Center. The streetscape standards will establish an enhanced environment for the City Center including sidewalk paving, lighting, street trees and grates, street furnishings and other amenities. On November 25, 2013, the City of Lynnwood authorized the consultant contract with KPG, Inc. to complete the City Center Streetscape Plan.
