Design Review Stakeholder Meetings

Seattle City Council issued a Statement of Legislative Intent requesting that the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections (SDCI) report on Design Review program outcomes, process improvements, and equity. SDCI and the Office of Planning & Community Development (OPCD) have gathered this group of stakeholders who will meet throughout 2022. 

The stakeholders, SDCI, and OPCD will conduct a Racial Equity Toolkit (RET) analysis of the Design Review Program. SDCI and OPCD will provide a report to the Council including the outcome of that analysis.
