PSRC is extending the region’s growth strategy to 2050.

As the region prepares to add more people and more jobs in the coming decades, VISION 2050 will provide a guide for sustaining a healthy environment, thriving communities and a strong economy.


VISION 2050 work program


The Growth Management Policy Board (GMPB) guided the development of VISION 2050, and on December 5, 2019, the GMPB acted unanimously to recommend VISION 2050 for adoption. The GMPB Recommended draft VISION 2050 plan (December 2019) includes information and perspectives about a changing region and reflects board-directed changes based on public comments gathered throughout the process.

What's Happening Now?

On January 16, 2020, the Executive Board received the GMPB Recommended draft VISION 2050 plan (December 2019). Action by the Executive Board on VISION 2050 was delayed due to COVID-19 and restrictions on in-person meetings. The Executive Board met in July to continue discussing VISION 2050. At its September 24 meeting, the Executive Board will consider amendments to the GMPB Recommended draft and take action to recommend adoption to PSRC’s General Assembly. The General Assembly is tentatively scheduled to meet virtually on October 29, 2020.


July 2019 Draft Plan Public Comment Period

The Growth Management Policy Board held a special public comment period from July 19 - September 16 to hear feedback on the draft VISION 2050 plan (July 2019). PSRC also hosted workshops and open houses across the region, and tabled booths at local events. PSRC and the policy board appreciated all the feedback received. 

Environmental Review

PSRC released a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) on March 18, 2020. It includes updated environmental analysis, comments on the Draft SEIS, and responses to those comments.
