As The Urbanist reported last week, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) will be holding an open house and presentation on the city’s update to the Comprehensive Plan. Here’s DPD’s event summary:
On March 24, the City of Seattle is holding an open house to discuss ways to plan for the growth expected in Seattle in the next 20 years. Learn about options for future population and job growth in Seattle, and comment on growth alternatives to be studied in an environmental impact statement (EIS). Public comments will help set the scope for the environmental study of growth alternatives.
Seattle 2035 is the 20 year update of Seattle’s Comprehensive Plan.
Staff from DPD and our consultant, Studio 3MW, will be there to answer questions, but more importantly to listen to your comments and learn about your priorities.
The meeting takes place tonight at 5pm in the Bertha Knight Landes Room at Seattle City Hall. The agenda is as follows:
- 5pm-5.30pm: Open House with staffed displays about Comprehensive Plan, Seattle 2035, Growth Alternatives, Environmental Impact Statement Process
- 5.30pm-5.45pm: Presentation about Comprehensive Plan and Seattle 2035 by DPD
