MarketStreet Advisory Committee requests feedback from Lynnfield residents

The mission of the MarketStreet Advisory Committee (MSAC), which was established by the Lynnfield Selectmen on May 8, 2017, is to establish a means of effective and ongoing communication for Lynnfield residents, Town of Lynnfield representatives, and WS Development and National Development, the firms that own and manage MarketStreet Lynnfield. The result of this communication will lead to better collaboration and a strengthened partnership between all parties involved with MarketStreet Lynnfield. This Committee will play a critical role in making sure MarketStreet Lynnfield is a success for the Town of Lynnfield now and in the future.

Made up of 13 Lynnfield residents representing all four precincts, MSAC has spent the summer getting organized, establishing processes and identifying top matters of interest concerning MarketStreet. The matters of interest include the Berm (the hill between Walnut Street and MarketStreet), Noise Management Improvement, Traffic Improvement, Advisement on Parking, Advisement on Financial Impact, Updating on the Development of Building 1350 (the building with Lahey Health as a tenant), and Advisement on the Potential Development of a Theatre/Cinema. (Currently, there is no theatre/cinema proposal from National Development for consideration.) Subcommittees have been assigned to each matter of interest and have been tasked to educate themselves on stakeholders’ perspectives and report back to MSAC on their findings.

The committee at large will consider those findings and when applicable, draft an advisement to be given to the Board of Selectmen.

Among other resources, feedback from Lynnfield residents is paramount to this discovery process. MSAC will designate an agenda item at upcoming meetings to hear feedback on these matters of interest.

The first two matters of interest discussed will be the Berm and Noise Management Improvement. MSAC invites residents to share feedback on these topics by attending the MSAC meeting on Thursday, September 14 at 7 p.m. in the Al Merritt Room – 600 Market Street, Lynnfield. (The entrance is found between Fugakyu and Sweet Greens; proceed to 2nd Floor). For those unable to attend, feedback can also be shared via email at The deadline for all feedback shared via email is Tuesday, September 12, 2017.

This MSAC hearing is limited to feedback relative to the Berm and Noise Management discussions during the September 14 meeting. Future MSAC meetings will be designated as hearings for the remaining matters of interest.
