Seattle City Planning engages citizens in an ongoing dialogue about Seattle's future and plays a central role in guiding the long-term development of the built and natural environment. It is comprised of more than 30 staff who evaluate regional growth management policy, monitor and update the City's Comprehensive Plan, draft land use policy, and develop sub-area and urban design plans. The division also includes staff which guide and support the work of the Seattle Planning Commission and the Seattle Design Commission.
DPD’s urban designers provide design leadership, development facilitation and education to affect the appearance of both public and private developments and how those developments contribute to the public’s experience of the city.
