Help set housing goals for Lynn!

Are you interested in helping the City of Lynn develop a community-driven plan to promote housing opportunity for all?

To learn more about Housing Lynn, including the plan’s context, timeline, and more, visit mapc.org/housing-lynn.

This first Housing Lynn forum is focused on understanding housing needs and setting priorities. Our discussion will help ensure Housing Lynn serves a broad range of Lynners, including renters and homeowners, families and those living alone, and folks of different ages, backgrounds, and income levels. Your voice is needed to ensure the plan represents all corners of this diverse community.
