Twin City Mile Revitalization Project

TCM Logo

Project Vision:

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 Downtown Revitalization Project that invests in our downtown business district infrastructure by:
  • 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. 


Project Description

The City has hired local Landscape Architect Scott Lankford 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. 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.


Project Location:

Stanwood City Hall Park on 270th eastward to the Train Station on 84th Avenue (Florence Road).
