City of Lynn Looking for Resident Input

When was the last time that you felt your city government really wanted to hear from you? When you felt like you had an opportunity to make a difference in the way decisions would get made going forward?

If you don’t feel that you’ve had a voice in your city government before, then you will not want to miss out on this opportunity.

The City of Lynn’s Office of Economic and Community Development, the Lynn Housing Authority & Neighborhood Development and the Citizen Advisory Board are jointly offering you the chance to be heard and discuss community needs through a pair of planned Community Forums.

The Community Forums are designed to introduce residents to the City’s Five Year Consolidated Plan and provide an opportunity for residents to share their views on community development, economic development, public services and housing needs and priorities in Lynn for the next five years.

The upcoming forums will be held on: Tuesday, April 21 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lynn Museum, 590 Washington St.; and Tuesday, April 28 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development Community Room, 10 Church St.

Anyone who is unable to attend either of those meetings is invited to share their thoughts and views by participating in an on-line survey available at

If you have questions, or need paper copies of the survey, or would like to request the information in alternative formats or ask for disability-related modifications to the forums, please contact Don Walker at 781-586-6778 or by email at [email protected].

    Has any attempt been made to bring a cinema complex to Lynn? We have to go to Danvers or Revere to see a movie. It would bring people into the city who would otherwise pass it by. Old timers tell me that at one time there were 3 or 4 cinemas in Lynn.
