The Comprehensive Plan is the guiding document for future change throughout Lynnwood. It describes the long-term direction and vision for the growth and development of the community. The Plan assesses the issues and opportunities that Lynnwood will face over the next 20 years.
The Plan includes elements to address all physical components of the community, including land use, transportation, housing, parks, public facilities, and economic development. Each element includes goals, objectives and policies aimed at making our community better and more stable.
The Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) requires local governments to periodically review and amend their comprehensive plans and development regulations. The City Council adopted the 2035 Comprehensive Plan on June 22, 2015. The information below includes all the documents that were adopted as part of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.
