The Seattle Office of Planning and Community Development and Seattle Center are hosting an open house and public hearing on the Uptown Rezone Draft Environmental Impact Study (DEIS). The DEIS process studies all of the potential impacts of zoning (including height change in the neighborhood). This information will be used to develop a rezone recommendation that we will seek input on this fall.
Today the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) released for public comment a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on the Seattle 2035 Comprehensive Plan Update. This a major milestone towards an update to the City’s Comprehensive Plan which plots a 20-year vision and roadmap for Seattle’s future growth and livability. The Draft EIS provides detailed information on various growth alternatives, their potential impacts to the environment, and proposed mitigation strategies. The City wants your voice to be heard as we refine strategies for accommodating growth for the benefit of all.
