Seattle 2035: Draft Comprehensive Plan

Seattle 2035

Seattle 2035 is the City of Seattle's draft Comprehensive Plan for managing growth. The plan provides long‐term guidance to help the City make decisions over the next 20 years about managing growth and providing  services. The Plan, which was first adopted in 1994, embraces the concept of sustainable growth. In May 2015, Mayor Ed Murray sent Seattle City Council a resolution making race and social equity a foundational core value for the City's Comprehensive Plan.

Council passed the resolution unanimously. The resolution calls for the City to:

  • Incorporate new race and social equity goals and policies throughout the Comprehensive Plan.
  • Analyze the impacts of proposed growth strategies on the most vulnerable communities, and change policies, programs and investments to help offset the impacts of the selected growth strategy.
  • Close racial and social disparities with capital and program investments.
  • Create, monitor and report on equity measures.
