FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 2, 2022
STANWOOD – Twin City Mile Downtown Revitalization Virtual Open House
The City of Stanwood is a special place; it is the perfect mix of rural countryside with small-town living. The City’s long-range planning documents envision celebrating the uniqueness of Stanwood by promoting a vibrant and economically robust downtown. Using policy guidance from these plans, the City is initiating the Twin City Mile Project, which will invest in the downtown business district through five unifying concepts:
- Creating Pedestrian-Friendly Streets.
- Actively Engage Storefronts with Walkable Sidewalks.
- Encourage Use of Streets for Community Festivals.
- Create Usable Urban Park Spaces; and
- Promote the Concept of Buying Local.
The city has hired local Landscape Architect Scott Lankford and engaged our on-call traffic and safety engineering experts at Transpo Group to help reimagine how the City’s main downtown commercial corridor could look and function by connecting City Hall to the Train Station: The Twin City Mile. This project will focus on connecting Stanwood’s two historical downtown developed cores. Project elements include constructing gateways, reconfiguring travel lanes and parking, building wider sidewalks and plaza areas, building park areas, and installing street trees, art, and other curb appeal amenities.
We want to hear from you. A community survey will be held online between May 2 and May 20, 2022. Visit the City’s website www.stanwoodwa.org to learn more about the project and take a short survey. With your help, we can collectively, as a community, make more informed decisions on how best to move forward with the downtown revitalization project.
For more information, contact Community Development Director Patricia Love.
