Surveying Our Downtown

On Saturday, April 13, from 10:00am-4:00pm, MAPC will be in Downtown Lynn to conduct a survey of building exteriors, lots, and the sidewalks in front of buildings using an innovative data collection tool called LocalData. We need your help to collect the data!

This data will go into an interactive online database that combines information from the survey with assessor’s data, zoning, and other information to give residents, business owners, investors, and the City a more in-depth and comprehensive picture of Downtown Lynn revitalization and development opportunities. The data will primarily be collected using smartphones or tablets with a data plan – it is not required that you have one, but if you do, please let us know. We would like to pair people with smartphones with people who don’t have them. Paper surveys are also possible as a backup, if we get more volunteer pairs than smartphones.

If you want to help, contact me at corey "at" or Manisha directly at:
