Neighborhood Planning

In 1999, the City Council finished the approval process for 38 neighborhood plans created by nearly 20,000 citizens. The plans identify actions needed to ensure that each neighborhood will continue to thrive and improve as Seattle grows over the next 20 years in ways that meet our commitments under the State's Growth Management Act. In the years since approval, much progress has been made on implementing the projects identified in the neighborhood plans. On this site, you can read the plan for your neighborhood.

Visit the Office of Planning and Community Development's website for current City efforts. Visit the archived Neighborhood Planning site for additional historic information. Read our Neighborhood Snapshots for a quick look at what's happening now.
