Capitol Hill Station is coming

The effort to update Seattle’s 20-year plan is coming to Capitol Hill with a community forum later this month.

Seattle 2035: Discussing Our Growing City
Bringing the open house to a community near you

SEATTLE – Couldn’t make it to Comprehensive Plan Update Open House and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Scoping Meeting on March 24?

No worries, we have scheduled five more open houses across Seattle. Drop in to learn about anticipated housing and job growth in Seattle over the next 20 years. We are especially interested in your take on the three planning alternatives proposed for study in an EIS. Are these the right alternatives to study for future growth? Are there additional topics you want included in the EIS? We’re taking comments through April 21. We will review and analyze your comments which will help us finalize the alternatives that will be studied.
We hope you can attend one of these meetings. If not, catch up with the latest news about Seattle 2035 at

  1. Car ownership is already too expensive for many people in this city. Traffic and congestion is the worst it has ever been and it is very difficult to find parking spots in large parts of the city today, let alone 20 years from now. We should concentrate new urban growth in places where people have more options for how to commute to their jobs and other parts of the city. It makes sense to start out with concentrating our growth in areas near existing or proposed light rail stations and then to consider broader urban village growth once we have more transit infrastructure in place to accommodate more people there.

  2. The 3 possible responses on the survey monkey are amazingly oversimplified and all pretty much reflect a shove it down your throat, one size fits all approach.
    This is the best we can come up with?!
