Comments due June 18. The Draft EIS studied four growth alternatives to determine how future growth will impact Seattle. Each alternative assumes the same amount of future growth – 120,000 people and 115,000 new jobs by 2035. As a companion to the Draft EIS, the City also released an Equity Analysis, which looks at how future growth will affect diverse populations, including low-income people, people of color, and English-language learners. The Equity Analysis is intended to help inform potential strategies to reduce growth impacts and maximize opportunity so that everyone can succeed and thrive as Seattle grows.
