Vision Lynn Status Update - December 2022

En Español

As 2022 comes to an end, we wanted to share a status update about the Vision Lynn Planning Process.

What We've Accomplished So Far

  • We completed Lynn Today, our extensive existing conditions analysis about Lynn.
  • We have connected with over a thousand Lynn residents, business owners, and other community members to gather input on our vision statements and to better understand what we want from real estate development in Lynn--and what we don't want. Our key vision statements are:
    • Lynn will be a city where people feel safe and comfortable to live, work, learn, and play.
    • Lynn will be a city where all community members have the housing, transportation access, social connections, and educational or economic opportunities to live a fulfilling life.
    • Lynn will be a city to be proud of, with strong, diverse, and connected communities that take care of our shared spaces, natural resources, and each other.

What We're Working On Now

  • The project team is putting together some possible futures for two areas in the city: Market Square and the Gearworks site. These scenarios will help us explore what we think good development could look like in two very different contexts.
  • City staff are meeting with major employers in the City to hear more about their needs and visions for the future of Lynn.
  • We are seeking feedback on the strategies that will be included in our plan, which will help guide the work of City departments, elected officials, and community advocates.
  • We are planning for our next public meeting in early February.

Next Steps

  • Take the survey on our strategies - We've translated our vision into strategies that we believe can move the city forward. Let us know if we got it right.
  • Attend the next public meeting - We will have an open house style event on Saturday, February 4 2023 from 10:30-12:30pm at the Lynn Senior Center at 37 Friend Street Lynn, MA 01902.
  • Join our email list - As we move towards adoption in the spring of 2023, make sure you are on our email list to be informed about more opportunities to weigh in on the plan.
