Public Land Use Notices

Below are notices and announcements for active land use permit applications, code amendments, comprehensive plan amendments, and environmental reviews. The application review process includes opportunities for public comment and, in some instances, appeal.

As part of the land use permit review process, community members are invited to comment on the proposal. For most permit processes with a formal comment period, property owners and occupants within 300 feet of a proposal are sent a notice in the mail. Other types of public notice may include posting at official locations such as City Hall, publication in the Everett Herald, and a public notice sign at the subject property.

All comments must be submitted in writing to the Project Planner by the end of the comment period. People who provide input typically become a Party of Record, and receive future notifications associated with that land use permit.

 

The City of Lynnwood is committed to assuring equal access and non-discrimination according to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and the American with Disabilities Act. For more information visit www.LynnwoodWA.gov/TitleVI.
