In early March, the Draft One Seattle Plan was released by the City of Seattle for feedback from the public. The Draft Plan is the fundamental planning document for the City of Seattle that determines where and how the city will grow and invest in Seattle communities over the next twenty years and beyond. Once a decade, the state’s Growth Management Act requires cities to seek feedback from the community and update their local Comprehensive Plan with that feedback in mind.   

There are several resources on the City’s Office of Planning and Community Development’s webpage to help you learn more about the Draft Plan, including summaries of the growth strategy and a Frequently Asked Questions page. To read more about the housing and growth strategy components of the Draft Plan, see pages 14-34 and pages 89-108 of the full Draft Plan.   

The City of Seattle is hosting a series of open houses on the Draft One Seattle Plan. Each of these open houses will have opportunities to talk with your neighbors, city planners, and other city officials about why housing affordability is important to you and where you’d like to see future growth be located. We encourage you to participate in these upcoming open houses to learn more about the Draft Plan and to share your feedback. Your input is crucial in ensuring that the final plan reflects the needs and aspirations of our community.
