Community input makes good development great.

In reimagining our 13-acre property, we want to hear directly from our neighbors and city residents to identify placemaking and programming priorities. We thank you for your time and feedback!

Please select the top three to five elements that you would like to see as part of the redevelopment. If you have other suggestions that you would like us to consider, please type it in the “other” space.
Retail
The District plans to design commercial spaces to attract local, small businesses with goods that are unique to the Pacific Northwest. What might be an experience or product that is currently missing in our community?

The expanded Event Center will include flexible outdoor and indoor spaces creating the ability to host a variety of public events. In addition to current programs such as the Interlaced Festival, Lynnwood Luau, Heros Among Us, Art Shows, and Jingle Bell Breakfast and Craft Fair, what other types of programming would interest you?
