New listening session on VISION 2050 Scoping in Redmond

Let’s talk about the region’s growth strategy

PSRC is seeking public input on the scope for the VISION 2050 plan and State Environmental Policy Act environmental analysis. The public comment period extends through Monday, March 19, 2018 at 5 pm.

A new listening session has been added in Redmond to hear input on scoping for the VISION 2050 plan. 

It will be held on March 8 from 4-6 pm at the Redmond Regional Library located at 15990 NE 85th Street, Redmond, WA 98052.

The region is preparing for growth in the coming decades — about 1.8 million more people and 1.2 million more jobs by 2050. VISION 2050 will build on the region’s existing plan to keep the central Puget Sound region healthy and vibrant as it grows and will consider updated information and perspectives about a changing region. The plan will identify the challenges the region should tackle together and renew the vision for the next 30 years.

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 healthy region - promoting the well-being of people and communities, economic vitality, and a healthy environment.

PSRC is seeking community input to shape the plan. What important regional issues should be the focus of the update?  How should the region’s growth strategy be updated to plan for 2050?  What impacts and actions should be evaluated through environmental review?

There are lots of ways to learn about and provide input on VISION 2050 and the environmental analysis. The scoping notice is available online. An ADA reader-accessible version of the scoping notice is available here.

All information, including how to submit comments via email, mail, fax or in person, is available on the VISION 2050 website.  If you have questions, please email or call 206-464-7549.
