One Center City is creating a 20-year plan for how we move through, connect to, and experience Seattle’s Center City neighborhoods. It is a public/private partnership between the City of Seattle, King County, Sound Transit, the Downtown Seattle Association and a diverse group of community stakeholders from Seattle’s Downtown core and surrounding neighborhoods.
In addition to developing a coordinated vision for Downtown transportation, One Center City will explore new plans for the public realm – our streets, sidewalks, parks, plazas, and other rights of way. OPCD will be reviewing current incentives that promote the creation of privately managed spaces that are open to the public – places like the Waterfall Garden Park, King County Courthouse Plaza, and sidewalk cafes. These spaces are where we experience and move through the city, so they need to be accessible, safe, and enjoyable for all.
