Help Preserve and Shape the Identity of the Central Area!

Seattle’s Central Area neighborhood is going through a phase of rapid growth. As new developments spring up around the area, impacts are felt most strongly by smaller businesses and residents who have long called the Central Area their home.

The Central Area Neighborhood Design Guidelines Coalition is working to mitigate these impacts by teaming up with the City of Seattle and the Center for New Urbanism to outline a set of neighborhood specific guidelines to guide future development.

Come and provide your input! Feedback from the community is needed in order to guide these efforts and create Design Guidelines that will not only help shape new development in the Central Area today, but provide a path and identity for the future.
