Growth in the City of Lynnwood will accelerate with the arrival of light rail. Lynnwood station is expected to open in 2023, based on the projections of Sound Transit. With the new station, the City will be linked as never before with the rest of the region and its urban centers. Lynnwood leaders are positioning the City to invest wisely in this future. They are leveraging the City’s connection with regional transportation infrastructure, anticipating new demand for housing, and working to make Lynnwood an even better place to live, work, and play. The City has made great progress with a plan framework that concentrates on the existing transit center and coming light rail station area, with a strong system of pedestrian-friendly streets, reduced block sizes, and more dense development near the transit center.
