VISION 2050 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement Now Available

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

VISION 2050 will be the long-range growth management, environmental, economic and transportation strategy for the central Puget Sound region. VISION 2050 will contain the region’s multicounty planning policies and a regional strategy for accommodating growth through 2050.

Forecasts show the need to plan for another 1.8 million people and 1.2 million new jobs between 2017 and 2050. PSRC developed VISION 2050 to guide growth to support thriving communities, a strong economy, and a healthy environment. PSRC’s General Assembly is expected to take final action on VISION 2050 on May 28, 2020.

The Final SEIS evaluates the environmental effects of four regional growth alternatives that distribute growth in unique patterns throughout the region. Beginning March 18, 2020, it can be viewed online at https://www.psrc.org/our-work/regional-planning/vision-2050/environmental-review.  The webpage provides options for viewing paper copies. The PSRC Information Center can also provide assistance at 206-464-7532 or info@psrc.org.

Appeals of the adequacy of the SEIS must be received in writing by PSRC and postmarked by March 31, 2020. Further information on submitting an appeal can be found at https://www.psrc.org/sepa-information.

VISION helps to coordinate the local growth and transportation plans developed by cities and counties to make sure they are consistent with the Growth Management Act and regional transportation plans. It is an integrated, long-range vision for the future that lays out a strategy for maintaining a sustainable region - promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment.

The Council is composed of over 80 jurisdictions, including all four counties, cities and towns, ports, state and local transportation agencies and tribal governments within the region.
