For Today

Comprehensive Plan Public Hearing

Once a year, the city is required to consider amendments to Seattle's Comprehensive Plan— the planning document that governs growth and development. The eight amendments under consideration are separate from the 2035 comp plan, the larger longterm update that's currently underway. But just like the comp plan itself, the immediate amendments and the 2035 macro plan are important pieces in a big holistic puzzle. And more importantly, the comp plan can be a social justice document.

Tuesday, those interested will have a chance to speak up on how our city should approach future growth and its potential impacts on low income housing, people of color, and English-language learners.

If you'd like to testify, the sign-up sheet will be available half an hour before the hearing at 2pm. 

2035 Comprehensive Plan Public Hearing, Tues, July 7, 2pm, Seattle City Hall Council Chambers, 600 Fourth Ave, Free
