DPD Advocates for a Safe and Healthy Delridge at Delridge Day

Delridge Day is on Saturday, August 8, and the Department of Planning and Development is working with their Delridge project advisory team to seek feedback from the community on our efforts to improve the North Delridge Action Plan. We are collaborating with the community to continue the work of improving the health, equity, and vitality of the Delridge neighborhood.

This is also an opportunity to review proposed steps the City and neighborhood can take to:

  • Create great community places along Delridge Way
  • Address drainage and flooding; increase access to healthy food
  • Make recreating, walking, biking and taking transit an easy choice

The event is at the Delridge Community Center Playfield, 4501 Delridge Way SW, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. Come share your ideas about parks and community development at our booth!

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 2015! Here's what you can do:

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.
