stanwood waStanwood is the town center serving a diverse rural, suburban and urban population of 33,000 people spread across two counties in what is generally identified as “Greater Stanwood Camano” and the home of the single high school that serves the entire population.

Many residents outside the City come into Stanwood for business, community events and park and recreation services. The City is focusing on retaining its role as the center of the Greater Stanwood area by pursuing new endeavors that support the downtown and employment diversification. These efforts include the following initiatives.

  • A successful year around farmers’ market and support of local food distribution
  • Special events, festivals, and sports tournaments to attract additional foot traffic into the downtown
  • Pursuing more effective means to address the flooding issues inherent in its location along the Stillaguamish River
  • Promoting businesses that fit into the downtown plan and allow residents to find everything they need within Stanwood

This area is rich in both scenic beauty and natural resources. Stanwood is geographically separated from the other urban areas of Snohomish County and is surrounded by unincorporated forested land, farm land, multiple sloughs, and the Stillaguamish Estuary, This setting affords a variety of both public and private recreational opportunities for the population. The proximity of the large population on Camano Island creates additional demand for services that is not accounted for in the typical economic analysis. Much of Stanwood’s cultural history is of Scandinavian heritage. Cultural influences have blended to form a community that is truly unique.
