Plan Scoping

VISION 2050 will provide a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities, and a strong economy.

From 2040 to 2050

For decades, the region has used the regional plan as a guide for local planning. The strategy has helped preserve rural areas while encouraging growth of vibrant cities and neighborhoods.

Experience over the past decade points to key challenges that the region needs to address. VISION 2050 is an opportunity for cities and counties to work together to address the most pressing challenges that extend beyond the boundaries of any single community.


Environmental Review

PSRC, as lead agency for environmental review, has determined that the proposal to update VISION 2040 is likely to have significant adverse impacts on the environment, and is therefore issuing a Determination of Significance (DS). PSRC intends to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) on the proposed update to VISION 2040. The SEIS will contain new information and analysis, and may also build on data and analysis contained in existing environmental documents, any of which may be adopted or incorporated by reference as appropriate, according to SEPA rules.


Comments Received

PSRC received numerous comments on the scope of the plan update and environmental review during the scoping comment period which ran from February 2 through March 19, 2018.
