LYNNWOOD, Wash., November 13, 2023—Representative Rick Larsen (WA-02) on November 9 joined by Lynnwood Mayor Christine Frizzell and City officials toured the construction progress of the Scriber Creek Trail that was followed by a briefing about the South Lynnwood Urban Forestry and Stewardship Program.
The City of Lynnwood was recently awarded $1.3 million through the U.S. Forest Service’s Urban and Community Forestry Program, which was funded through the Inflation Reduction Act. The Scriber Creek Trail redevelopment project will replace a narrow, at-grade trail with a 12 to 16-foot-wide accessible trail. Where crossing Scriber Creek and associated wetlands, the trail will be constructed on elevated bridge/boardwalk structures.
Larsen secured $1,000,000 for phase two of the City’s Scriber Creek Trail redevelopment project in the Fiscal Year 2022 spending bills and requested an additional $5 million for phase three of the project in Fiscal Year 2024. The House’s Transportation, Housing and Urban Development spending bill, which is currently under consideration in the House, includes $500,000 for the project.
Last week Larsen hosted several Veterans forums and a telephone town hall answering questions on legislation, health care, job training, housing and more. Larsen has held more than 70 public Veterans Forums to hear directly from local veterans about how he can better serve them in Congress and encourages any Northwest Washington veteran who needs assistance to contact his Everett office at 425-252-3188.
