Seattle 2035: Weigh in on the Draft Plan

Have you weighed in on the City’s plan for how Seattle should grow over the next 20 years? If not, you’ll have several opportunities over the next couple of months to provide feedback on our Draft Comprehensive Plan. Your input will help DPD evaluate strategies to build a safe, vibrant, affordable, interconnected, and innovative city for all. Your feedback will help shape the Mayor’s recommended plan.

Seattle is expected to grow by 120,000 residents and 115,000 jobs in the coming twenty years. The Draft Plan identifies proposed goals and policies to help achieve our vision for Seattle’s future. The Draft Plan also includes a new Future Land Use Map, with expanded boundaries in 12 urban villages that would help support the expected growth.  Final decisions about the expanded boundaries will be made only after we have the opportunity to work with local neighborhoods.
