Ideas for a thriving, vibrant, and economically competitive future

Community Engagement

Community Engagement was a critical component of MAPC's efforts to build on the vision for Downtown Lynn. We learned about Downtown Lynn and its needs by convening a project Team of Advisors, conducting interviews with community leaders, giving presentations to community-based organizations, attending community events, talking with people we encountered on the street or at local businesses, interacting with community members using social media such as Facebook as well as via email, collecting land use and property data using local volunteers, and by hosting two public forums in Downtown. We know we did not meet everyone with something to share about the future of Downtown Lynn, but our hope is that this targeted approach gave us an informed perspective to guide our recommendations.
