Seattle is a special place, and it’s no wonder that more and more people want to live here. Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and much of this growth is happening in Seattle’s Center City neighborhoods, collectively known as Center City.
To keep Center City moving and ensure that it continues to be a great place to live, work, and play, we’re planning ahead.
One Center City is a public/private partnership between the City of Seattle, King County Metro, Sound Transit, and the Downtown Seattle Association to create 20-year vision for mobility and great public spaces in Center City. The 20-year vision will also include near-term strategies that can help to improve mobility in the next few years and support Center City's role as a important regional transportation hub.
Working together, we will improve mobility for all users of our transportation system, give people options for getting around our growing city, and provide for a safe and enjoyable pedestrian experience.
The next several years will bring many changes to Center City. To keep everyone moving during this time, we're planning ahead. The following pages highlight some of the strategies that we're considering to keep Center City vibrant.
