The City of Seattle is proposing new Land Use Concepts !
To meet land use goals, the City is studying changes to its Comprehensive Plan policies and zoning regulations, which are centered around three new industrial zones:
Maritime, Manufacturing, and Logistics (MML)
Industry and Innovation (II)
Urban Industrial (UI)
The comprehensive plan is a long term document that shapes our city’s future. In Seattle, the Industrial & Maritime Strategy has been a multi-year process. The DEIS is a Draft Environmental report that is a chance for YOU to comment!
The city is hosting two public meetings for people to provide comments and there’s a 45 day comment period for written comments, due by January 31, 2022.
Hearing #1 Tues. Jan. 11 at 10 a.m.
Hearing #2 Wed. Jan. 12 at 6 p.m
