Open House event at Loyal Heights Community Center, March 14.

At our open houses, expect stations with poster boards representing a different element of the Draft Plan. City staff will be at each station to provide more information and listen to your feedback. There will be a few tables with informational materials that you can take home, including a comment box for written comments. Computer stations are also there so that you can provide feedback directly on the Draft Plan via our Engagement Hub. Light refreshments will be provided. 

Draft Anti-Displacement Framework

The Draft Plan includes an updated growth strategy that creates opportunities for more homes throughout Seattle, and how expanding housing supply can help to slow the housing cost increases that are currently pushing people out of our city. But zoning changes alone are insufficient to fully address these displacement pressures. The City and its partners also support and invest in a range of policies and programs to help current residents, businesses, and cultural anchors stay in place and thrive.

The Anti-Displacement Framework summarizes these existing efforts, describing the Draft Plan’s proposed growth strategy and goals and policies in the Draft Plan that support this approach. The Framework describes how the Draft Plan itself includes many new and strengthened goals and policies that support a multi-pronged approach to preventing displacement as the city grows (see Anti Displacement Framework Appendices). Together, these newly-released documents provides context to help community members engage with this topic during our outreach for the Draft Plan.

We encourage you to read and provide feedback on the Anti-Displacement Framework as a supporting document to the Draft Plan. Share your thoughts on the Framework via the Engagement Hub or by emailing

Draft Housing Appendix

Since its initial adoption in 1990, the state Growth Management Act (GMA) has required local comprehensive plans to inventory and analyze existing and projected housing needs. The Draft Housing Appendix addresses these requirements and provides a wealth of additional data to inform housing policies in the One Seattle Plan, consistent with GMA and regional frameworks.
