Update–corrected email link: please send email comments to 2035@seattle.gov. Sorry for any confusion.

The City of Seattle has released the Seattle 2035 Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for public review and comment. The Draft EIS looks at four different ways that Seattle could grow over the next 20 years, and potential impacts to the built and natural environment. In addition, the City has also released an Growth and Equity Analysis, which looks at ways to minimize impacts to low-income people, people of color and English-language learners and ensure that everyone in Seattle benefits from growth.

“Seattle’s new Comprehensive Plan will be our blueprint for a more walkable, livable community,” said Mayor Ed Murray. “Race and social justice must be a foundational value as we update our plan. In the coming years, we need to encourage healthy growth and prosperity for all our diverse communities.”

Over the next 45 days, you can check out the Draft EIS and Growth and Equity Analysis and provide your comments.
