PSRC issuing addendum to VISION 2050 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

SEATTLE-- The Puget Sound Regional Council has prepared an addendum to the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for VISION 2050 in accordance with the State Environmental Policy Act.

The addendum assesses and documents a revision in the methodology for estimating future household size. Estimates for household size are now slightly smaller in some areas, which could result in greater numbers of housing units for equivalent populations.

The addendum can be viewed online at https://www.psrc.org/our-work/regional-planning/vision-2050/environmental-review.  The PSRC Information Center can provide assistance at 206-464-7532 or info@psrc.org.

Appeals of the adequacy of the addendum must be received in writing by PSRC and postmarked by October 12, 2020. Information on submitting an appeal can be found at https://www.psrc.org/sepa-information.

VISION 2050 will chart the course for the region’s growth over the next 30 years. It is home to the region’s multicounty planning policies and a regional strategy for accommodating growth through 2050. The plan seeks to enhance communities and equity for the region’s residents, support a strong economy, expand housing choices, clean up Puget Sound, and provide a comprehensive regional transportation system. VISION 2050 supports continued growth in urban areas and preservation of rural areas and open space.  The plan focuses a significant share of job and population growth near transit.  

PSRC’s General Assembly is expected to take final action on VISION 2050 on October 29, 2020.

PSRC develops policies and coordinates decisions about regional growth, transportation and economic development planning within King, Pierce, Snohomish and Kitsap counties. The Council is composed of over 80 entities, including all four counties, cities and towns, ports, state and local transportation agencies and tribal governments within the region.
