Report on Public Engagement (March 2012)
December 2011 — Transform Seattle: Many Voices, One Future
In December of 2011, we held a workshop with over 100 people from the Somali, Ethiopian, Latino, Filipino, Chinese, and Cambodian communities in Southeast Seattle. We asked the workshop participants about their future transportation, housing, and energy needs in Seattle. We engaged in a dialogue about how to create better neighborhoods with more services and shops closer to home, how to work toward attractive and affordable housing choices, and the desire for safe and convenient public transportation systems.
May 2012 — Big Issues event
Seattle Design Festival
We showcased some preliminary ideas about a new urban design element, now being considered for the Seattle Comprehensive Plan, at the Seattle Design Festival. Over 250 citizens participated in our interactive exercise about urban design. See the Seattle Design Festival website.
Seattle AIA Collaboration
We worked with Seattle AIA to brainstorm inspiring ways to use urban design to enhance Seattle's built and natural environment. Here are a few examples of urban design ideas from that collaboration.
Healthy Food Stakeholders
Our comprehensive plan 2012–2013 amendments help support the City's efforts to create healthy communities by drawing a link between healthy food and equitable, sustainable neighborhoods.
