Seattle Planning Commission

The Seattle Planning Commission (SPC) advises the Mayor, City Council, and City departments on broad planning goals, policies, and plans for the physical development of the city. The Commissions work is framed by the Comprehensive Plan and its vision for Seattle into the twenty-first century, and by a commitment to engaging citizens in reaching these goals.

The SPC was established by City Charter in 1946 and is an independent body that has 15 members who are Seattle residents. The SPC has four primary roles:

  1. Foster community participation to support quality urban planning and design;
  2. Advise City decision-makers on broad planning policies and goals, and on major planning projects and issues;
  3. Educate leaders and citizens to promote excellence in planning, particularly at the intersection of urban design, preservation, art, and architecture; and
  4. Advocate for planning decisions that support the health and vitality of the community.
