FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 15, 2022

STANWOOD, WA — Stanwood Seeks Community Input with Development Codes and Procedures Update

Do you have a specific vision or want for Stanwood? Now is the perfect time to have your voice heard. City Staff is working on a significant update of Stanwood's development codes and procedures, in addition to updating the long-term goals and vision of the City. As residents of the City, you use the roads and parks daily; we want to hear about any physical improvements that may be needed to improve your quality of life in Stanwood.


The City has created the Capital Improvement Plan Questionnaire, which gives you a voice to help staff identify elements of Stanwood's infrastructure, such as sidewalks, roads, trails, and stormwater drainage, that need maintenance or improvement. We will compile the results of this questionnaire in a list utilized by the Mayor and City Council to prioritize and budget infrastructure projects over 6-year and 20-year timeframes, known as the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). Previous Capital Improvement Projects approved and constructed through this process include the new baseball fields at Heritage Park, Viking Way improvements, the drainage system downtown, and new sidewalks along 273rd Place NW.


The Capital Improvement Plan Questionnaire will be available until January 31st, 2023, on the City's website- In addition to this questionnaire, the City will host two virtual open houses in December to engage the community regarding proposed zoning and land use changes. The open houses will take place Wednesday, December 7th, and Wednesday, December 14th. Information on attending these open houses is available on the City's website. Contact Tansy Schroeder at 360-454-5211 or for more details.
