Public Engagement Opportunities

This page provides opportunities for you to weigh in on Citywide issues using online surveys, polls, town halls, and more.


Draft Comprehensive Plan

Let’s talk about how Seattle is changing.
Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in America, expecting to add 120,000 people and 115,000 jobs by 2035. We must plan for how and where that growth occurs.

The Seattle 2035 draft plan addresses Seattle’s growth.
We are pleased to present a Draft Plan for public discussion. The Draft Plan contains hundreds of policies that guide decisions about our city, including Key Proposals for addressing growth and change. These Key Proposals have emerged from conversations among City agencies and through public input.

We need your feedback.
Your input will influence the Mayor’s Recommended Plan, coming in December 2016! Here's what you can do:

DPD is planning five meetings in October and November to gather community feedback before finalizing the Mayor’s Final Recommended  Seattle Comprehensive Plan.   The Draft Plan  identifies proposed goals and policies to help achieve our vision for Seattle’s future. Your feedback will help DPD evaluate strategies for a city that grows according to four core values:   community, economic opportunity, environmental stewardship, and social equity. The Draft Plan also includes a new Future Land Use Map, with expanded boundaries in 12 urban villages to accommodate expected growth near our region’s transit investments.

Public Engagement Period for Draft Transportation Levy to Move Seattle

Mayor Murray and SDOT Director Scott Kubly have released a draft proposal for a new levy called The Transportation Levy to Move Seattle. The proposed nine-year, $900 million levy would replace an existing levy that expires at the end of 2015. The City is seeking public input on the draft levy proposal and there are many ways to get involved, including three community conversations and a survey.

Seattle Center

Public Programs - Ongoing survey

Seattle Center belongs to you. As a resident or visitor of this region, you support Seattle Center and, as a result, we are committed to providing experiences that reflect your interests. It means that you do not have to spend a lot of money to attend a great concert, explore another culture, or share a hobby with other enthusiasts. And it means Seattle Center is a place you can come to be inspired, to renew your spirit, and to be a welcome part of the community.

Public Programs are free and affordable events that Seattle Center produces for the public to enjoy. They are different from commercial events such as a rock concert in KeyArena, or events by a resident organization like Pacific Northwest Ballet. Your participation will help us improve Public Programs.
