Purpose & Structure

This web page includes the package of final legislation associated with each of the 38 neighborhoods that have participated in the City of Seattle's neighborhood planning program. The legislation, referred to as the "Approval & Adoption Package," consists of three sets of documents:

1. The Approval and Adoption Matrix is a detailed workplan to implement the neighborhood's plan. The Matrix is intended to serve as the primary tool to help the City implement the neighborhood plan. The Department of Neighborhoods' Neighborhood Development Managers have developed sector work programs and a central database to track implementation of the activities in all of the neighborhood plan matrices over time. Most matrices are divided into two sections:

  • Key Strategies are usually complex projects or related activities that the neighborhood considers critical to the successful implementation of its plan.
  • Additional Activities for Implementation are activities not directly associated with a Key Strategy, ranging from high to low priority and from immediate to long-range in anticipated timing.

2. The Resolution recognizes the neighborhood plan and approves a detailed work program (the Matrix) for the City to implement the neighborhood plan.

3. The Ordinance adopts portions of the neighborhood plan as amendments to the City's 20-year Comprehensive Plan and, as necessary, amendments to the Seattle Land Use Code. Some plans have more than one ordinance.

The former Neighborhood Planning Office developed the information in the Activity, Priority, Time Frame, Cost Estimate and Implementator columns of the matrices. The City Response column reflects City department comments as compiled by the former Strategic Planning Office. The City Action column in Section II and the narrative response to each Key Strategy were initially filled in by City departments and then reviewed, changed if appropriate, and finalized by City Council. Staff from almost every City department participated in these planning efforts and in preparation of the matrices. Ultimately, the City Council approved the matrices listed and recognized each neighborhood plan by resolution.
