There have been a great number of changes since the original plan was created over a decade ago. While many of the principles and strategies still make sense, we also have the threat of global climate destabilization, the new light rail station, the listing of salmon as an endangered species, and the recent financial market collapse.
Seattle Planning Commission is updating our plans to acknowledge the changing world and our changing community.
What do you want to see in your future? How should we help plan for generations to come? What is our responsibility to the global environment, to the health of Lake Washington and Puget Sound? What can we do to make our streets safer for children, seniors, and the alternately abled? How can our neighborhood plans make it easier grow and strengthen our community? How can we make it easier to buy/rent a house or find a job?
While zoning and infrastructure sound like dry subjects, they are at the core of all the questions above, so please go check out the video, look at the existing plans, and look at the status update. Most importantly, fill out the survey and make your views matter: http://www.cityofseattle.net/planningcommission/
