About the Plan

South Lynnwood and the city-at-large are growing and changing. This Neighborhood Planning project aims to engage South Lynnwood’s communities to establish a vision for the community; identify projects and policies to stabilize housing for all families; provide opportunities for various land uses; improve access to busses and non-motorized transportation; and be a model for other improvements throughout the City of Lynnwood. 

This project began in June 2019 and is estimated to go through 2021, resulting in a South Lynnwood Neighborhood Plan for implementation by the City of Lynnwood and community partners. 

These statements were created using information from community surveys and conversations with community members. These future conditions statements provide a vision for South Lynnwood’s future.
