Take a survey on growth in the region

VISION 2050 survey open online

Note:  The online public opinion survey is now closed. More information on how to get involved in VISION 2050 is available at https://www.psrc.org/our-work/regional-planning/vision-2050/get-involved.

As part of the scoping process for VISION 2050, PSRC conducted a statistically valid phone survey in King, Snohomish, Pierce and Kitsap counties. The results of that survey will be available in the next month. 

In the meantime, we want to hear from you! Please take the survey in your preferred language:

Your responses are completely anonymous. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. 

Please share this with your groups, friends, family or anyone you think might be interested in sharing their thoughts on growth related issues in the Puget Sound region.

What is this all about?

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. PSRC is seeking community input to shape the plan.

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.

It is hugely disappointing they PSRC does not publicly promote making sure the infrastructure is in place before growth is allowed, including schools.

As a LUAC member I can say you do not respect our community plans and it shows. The plans are perverted to meet the inner-city mentality that is contrary to those living in the unprepared UGA. Cities were to be part of the planning and cost providers and they are not to be seen. As the state urban growth act is so flawed no one will correct the slum it is creating where we live. No concurrence of anything but gridlock.

Instead of cramming more and more workers into already overcrowded core locations like the East side and Seattle, buisnesses should be encouraged to locate all up and down the I-5 corridor from Olympia to Bellingham, and then workers will eventually spread out. This will allow workers to still own suburban homes while living close to where they work, and evening out use of our freeways. I know this goes against what elite "urban planners" want - which is for people to cram into apartments and take buses to work, but I believe development should serve the wants and needs of THE PEOPLE and not the government and city planners.

Sprawling the entire West Coast, from LA to Bellingham, is a horrifying vision.

Sprawl is horrible, yet, insanely expensive "mixed use" is not the answer either. Redeveloping the existing sprawl is something that is not being done. When people are living in 1.3 million dollar single family homes, for miles, we have already failed. There is nowhere to go but out now, because the middle is locked up by WASP NIMBYs who dominate local government and watch their equity continue to sore.

Density planning not development is what we see. We put forward community plans and they are ignored. There is no plan with quantifiable bench marks and dates to prepare for development. Out in the UGA it is all backward thinking with no money for fixing. We will become the rundown parts of inner cities that people vacate but that is probably your plan then you will call it blighted and use taxpayer funds to rebuild. Can't or won't do it right the 1st time for long term Livability, sad very sad.

It is a sad truth cities do not think like the UGA and rural areas. We are forgotten in making your visions and must suffer their narrow vision. We suffer your "do not build infrastructure it will encourage people to move there". Well that is still being pushed upon us and we are now a UGA with no infrastructure, schools, connecting through roads or retail for the people who live in the slums being built far denser than the rules allow. There is no enforcement of the laws.
