Northern Strand Zoning Overlay Survey


A new survey has been posted to get input from Lynn residents and community stakeholders concerning a Northern Strand Zoning Overlay.

Massachusetts recently announced plans to complete the Northern Strand ending in Lynn. This will connect an 11.5-mile route from the Mystic River to the Lynn shoreline. 

The survey not only seeks feedback on the types of business, recreation, and housing that you would like to find along the route but also educates survey takers on the importance of zoning, what zoning can accomplish, and why the overlay is being created. Partnering on the project are Lynn EDIC, MAPC, the City of Lynn, and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

An overlay district could create mixed use zoning, green spaces, small businesses, and more that would benefit from and enhance the area along the route.

You can find the survey here.
