What’s Happening to the Public Feedback on the Seattle 2035 Draft Plan?

For the past month, City staff have been sorting and organizing feedback we received about the Seattle 2035 Draft Plan. During the five-month comment period, people had many options to share their thoughts. Online options included email, website comment box, Facebook, Twitter, and Consider IT online community conversation and survey. The 430 attendees at open houses in October and November completed surveys, recorded comments on easel pads or sticky notes, or used one of our iPads to log comments online. All that input is being gathered and organized in a single database.

While staff is reviewing all of that input, you can see what others have said about the Draft Plan on our website (2035.seattle.gov). Documents recently posted include a printout of 600+ verbatim comments in the database, a packet of letters received from 41 stakeholder organizations, and results of the survey on the 10 key proposals. Although closed to new comments, the Consider IT online community conversation is archived and still available for viewing. A Community Engagement Progress Report summarizing all the activities and feedback for 2015 will be coming later this month. Look for the release of the Mayor’s Plan and the Final Environmental Impact Statement, and Final Equity Analysis in March or April of 2016.
