Duwamish Valley Action Plan - Seattle, Washington

January 2018

In 2018, Seattle’s Office of Sustainability & Environment, in collaboration with the Office of Planning and Community Development, released the Duwamish Valley Action Plan. The Plan lays out a variety of different strategies and projects that should be implemented in the South Park and Georgetown neighborhoods of Seattle. The Plan itself is grounded in equity considerations and environmental justice principles, which results in recommendations that will benefit the communities most affected by the impacts of climate change and systematic racism. The published document is a result of the input of over 500 stakeholders within the Duwamish Valley Region – outreach that began very early in the creation of the report and its recommendations and continued throughout its development. The Action Plan breaks down its projects and proposals into facilitating the development of seven different priority areas: healthy environment; parks and open spaces; community capacity; mobility and transportation; economic opportunity and jobs; affordable housing; and public safety. Within each priority area chapter, there are detailed near-term accomplishments, actions, or projects, and opportunities that, if implemented, will go towards achieving the area-specific goals laid out at the beginning of each chapter. Included among these plans are projects that enhance the natural resilience of these communities, such as tree planting, the development of rain gardens, building more open spaces, and more.
