Now available: VISION 2050 Final SEIS

Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

PSRC 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.
