Seattle 2035: Guiding Principles Workshop
Understand how you will shape the plan

SEATTLE –On March 3, join us for a workshop on the nine guiding principles behind the Comprehensive Plan update. The guiding principles are statements about our city’s challenges and opportunities–economic opportunity, growth, climate change, community health, transit, strategic investment and innovation. They emerged from public engagement conducted in 2011, and were adopted by City Council in 2012. The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) wants your perspective about how these principles can shape the plan. Whether you are a planning guru or just curious, everyone is welcome to participate. Seattle 2035 is a yearlong citywide conversation about how Seattle should grow over the next 20 years. Your input will be used to update the Seattle Comprehensive Plan.

As we plan for the next 20 years, we are looking at different patterns of growth and how they will affect the environment. Later this year we will choose one alternative, so it’s important that we hear from you—are we assessing the right ones?  Are we measuring the right things? Please attend on March 24 and provide your feedback.
