This project was funded by Mayor Smith's Community Vision Initiatives fund which seeks to support projects and initiatives that directly tie to the Community Vision, encourage citizen engagement, enhance the City's partnerships and affect or improve the quality of life of our residents.

The City of Lynnwood would like to thank artist Amaranta Ibarra for providing art education, Cedar Valley 6th grade teachers Soraya Soltani and Leah Laatz, and the Lynnwood Arts Commission for their dedication to this project. The City looks forward to partnering with more community groups to install additional signal wraps in the near future.
