The Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) will hold five community meetings this fall to solicit public comment on the Draft City of Seattle Comprehensive Plan. Entitled Seattle 2035, the Draft Plan was released for public comment on July 8, 2015. The updated Comprehensive Plan will be our roadmap for Seattle’s next 20 years.
The meetings will include open house displays and a presentation to provide a broad overview of the Draft Plan, highlight major changes and get feedback on proposed village expansion areas, especially areas near meeting locations. Since some of Seattle 2035’s policies about affordable housing will be implemented as part of the City’s proposed Housing and Affordability and Livability Agenda, there will be information and opportunity for feedback at the meetings.

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.

Seattle 2035’s Key Directions event attracted over 200 people to the Seattle Center last Tuesday evening. The purpose of the event was to help DPD define the important “key directions” for the update to the Comprehensive Plan. The crowd travelled a circuit of stations to learn more and to weigh in on a range of topics, including housing, economic development, environment, land use, and transportation.
On Tuesday, June 24, DPD is holding the “Seattle 2035: Key Directions & Chow Down.” DPD is inviting people to come join the conversation about Key Directions for Seattle over the next 20 years, grab a bite and possibly win a prize.
