Duwamish Valley Program

Advancing Environmental Justice and Equitable Development in the Duwamish Valley

The Duwamish Valley Program (DVP) recognizes that environmental justice and equitable development will only be achieved when mechanisms that promote communication, transparency, and accountability are set in place and when the priorities of those most affected by racial inequities and health disparities are reflected in City plans and implemented through City work.

To this extent, the Duwamish Valley Program currently consists of two major focus areas: implementing the Duwamish Valley Action Plan and co-designing the Duwamish Valley Resilience District

Action Plan

The Duwamish Valley Action Plan was released in 2018 and is a City-community vision for the neighborhoods of South Park and Georgetown. Each year since its release, the Duwamish Valley Program has produced annual updates to demonstrate how the City is delivering on the commitments made in the Action Plan. 

Resilience District

The Resilience District is a place-based geographic strategy for holistic climate change adaptation planning. Addressing cumulative impacts, displacement pressures, and climate change requires large-scale change and a holistic approach that leverages partnerships that generate multiple benefits and promote shared decision-making.
