Barr Foundation get[t]here Mobility Survey

Click to go to survey

The Barr Foundation is conducting a mobility survey for the City of Lynn. This survey will provide us with valuable information regarding transportation in Lynn.

How do you get around everyday? Do you drive a car, ride a bike, use a rideshare app, walk or use public transportation?

The Barr Foundation has put together the following “get[t]here Lynn” mobility survey for Lynners to share their experiences on how you travel to get to places that are most important to you and the projects that can make a difference in how you move through your community. The survey will be open until just before Thanksgiving.

The survey is available in English, Spanish and Khmer and can be found here: get [t]here: Lynn.

Early voting this week at Lynn City Hall

From City Clerk/Election Chief Janet Rowe:  I wanted to share some information with you on the upcoming Election.  We still have one week left for “early voting”.  Please share with your family, friends and co-workers. The Mayor has allowed the front door to be open for voting only. Handicap voters can use the Johnson St entrance.
Citizens can safely come in and vote, and exit right back out the front entrance.  They will not be allowed to go anywhere else in the Hall.  Anyone who needs to do business will be directed to the Johnson Street entrance to “sign in”.   We are doing our own contract tracing for voters only.

Early voting will be held during our regular business hours.   Please help spread the word.  This week we had 3,240 who early voted! 

Be kind, be well, stay safe,

Janet L. Rowe 


Reminder: Filming downtown Tuesday-Thursday, parking restrictions in place

“Housing Lynn” event this Wednesday

On Wednesday, October 28th, Housing Lynn will launch an online open house to get your input on draft plan recommendations. This digital survey tool will provide information on recommendations, including what housing needs these actions respond to and what goals they advance, and ask to what degree you support each action. The survey will be open through Sunday, November 8th. The survey is in English and Spanish.
Also on October 28th, the Housing Lynn team will host informal office hours from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM for residents to hear a very brief overview of this survey followed by a Q&A. Spanish interpretation will be provided.
