LYNDEN, Wash. – The City of Lynden hopes to buy a farm.

The 40-acre Benson Road property could be used for parkland and other city uses.

The Lynden City Council voted last week to move forward with negations to acquire the land.

The farm includes a house, barn and other outbuildings.

Lynden city leaders have a goal of seven acres of parkland per 1,000 residents.

Right now, they’re short of that goal.
