Workshop Descriptions:

Arts and Culture: How can an inclusive approach to creative placemaking support local arts, culture, and creativity in Lynn? MAPC and the Downtown Lynn Cultural District will discuss their work using arts and culture to foster engagement and dialogue, to develop an approach to public art that celebrates Lynn’s past, supports Lynn’s local artists and residents, and infuses the city’s public places and spaces with creative energy. Participate in a conversation about what is wonderful and challenging about arts and culture in Lynn today, and find out how you can be a part of it all.

Economic Development: Discussion with representatives from the Economic Development and Industrial Corporation of Lynn (EDIC) and Gateway Cities Innovation Institute at MassInc.

Education: Discussion of the Lynn Public Schools Strategic Plan, a comprehensive district-wide plan focused on developing an inclusive learning environment that allows each student to meet their full potential.

Housing: Discuss strengths and challenges related to housing in the City. In 2020, the City of Lynn, working with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, will kick off Housing Lynn: A plan for inclusive growth. This community-driven effort will consider market-rate and Affordable Housing need and establish housing goals. The final plan will recommend actions the City and its partners can take to increase housing security for Lynn residents and proactively guide the type, amount, and location of future housing.
