The City’s design guidelines, entitled Design Review: Guidelines for Multifamily and Commercial Buildings, have been the cornerstone of Seattle’s Design Review Program since 1994. In 2008, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) initiated a process to update the 16-year-old citywide guidelines, and recently released a draft for public review.
The design guidelines have been updated to address changing conditions in neighborhoods, reflect emerging issues in urban design and sustainability, and improve general usability for Design Review Boards, City staff, and the public
DPD staff is looking for comments on the draft guidelines as they prepare a proposal for Council review.
The guidelines are available on DPD’s website at http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/Planning/CitywideDesignGuidelinesUpdate/Overview.
