What we’ve heard so far

The Seattle 2035 Draft Plan comment period closed on November 20. Thank you to all of you who submitted comments on the Seattle 2035 Draft Plan. Here’s a sample of what we’ve heard so far:

  • “Growth needs to include amenities for people of all ages & abilities.”
  • “A vibrant city needs people of all backgrounds and means to live and work there.”
  • “Focus on equity, public safety, and public health.”

What’s next for Seattle 2035?

Now that the comment period has closed, we’ll begin to inform the Mayor’s Recommended Plan. Here’s what happens next:

Early 2016 – Mayor’s Recommended Plan, Final Environmental Impact Statement, and Final Equity Analysis released
Spring 2016 – City Council review begins
Mid-2016 – Public hearing
Fall 2016 – City Council expected to adopt Plan

There will continue to be opportunities for public involvement throughout 2016, including outreach activities around urban village boundaries and proposed zoning changes – stay tuned for more information.
