Regional Growth Planning

The Puget Sound region is beginning the process to update the regional, county, and city plans for growth. The current focus of this process is being conducted by the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC), which will inform growth plans developed by King County, and eventually Mercer Island.

PSRC is updating the regional plan for managing growth, known as VISION 2050. Forecasts show the region needs to plan for 1.8 million additional people and 1.2 million new jobs by 2050. VISION 2050 will inform countywide growth targets and city comprehensive plans.

City staff will update this page as the regional growth planning process progresses.
