Please join me at this important meeting next week. It is an opportunity to make your voice heard on growth in our region in the next 32 years. Details are below.
I hope to see you there.
The Puget Sound Regional Council is extending the region’s growth plan to 2050. VISION 2050 will build on the region’s existing plan, VISION 2040, to keep the central Puget Sound region healthy and vibrant as it grows.
As the region prepares to add more people and more jobs in the coming decades — about 1.8 million more people by 2050 —VISION 2050 will provide a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities, and a strong economy. VISION 2050 will identify the challenges we should tackle together as a region and renew the vision for what we want to achieve in the next 30 years.
The region’s current growth plan VISION 2040 was adopted in 2008. It has policies and strategies that focus growth within an established urban growth area. It aims to keep rural areas, farms, and forests intact and thriving. Within cities, new housing and jobs for a growing population are focused in centers to create and sustain vibrant urban neighborhoods.
We want to hear from you! PSRC wants to hear from you to help shape the plan update. PSRC held four countywide listening sessions in February and based on feedback, will hold an additional listening session in March. Presentations will begin at 4:15pm.
Thursday, March 8 from 4 –6 pm
