Take City Survey On How Neighborhood Is Changing

The City is conducting a survey to gather input on "how your neighborhood is changing."

The information says:

Measuring Change (from Department of Planning & Development)
How do we know if change is occurring? We can see the weather changing through the seasons or mark change by watching a tree grow over time, but what about measuring change in something as complex as a city neighborhood? Examining population or job growth is one way to measure change but what about lesser-known measures like transit ridership, tree canopy cover, or academic performance?
We want to hear from you! Tell us what you think tells us the most about how your neighborhood is changing by taking our quick poll to indicate which five topics are most important to you. It's impossible to measure how a city neighborhood changes with just one measure. By examining a variety of indicators, life-long Seattle resident and former Seattle City Council member, Peter Steinbrueck, was able to develop a clearer picture of change in Seattle's neighborhoods. 
In January, Seattle 2035 hosted Steinbrueck to discuss how he used a variety of indicators to evaluate the success of Seattle's Urban Villages. The Urban Village Strategy has guided Seattle's growth to urban areas and preserved farms and forests, over the past 20 years when it was adopted in Seattle's 1994 comprehensive plan. 
Seattle 2035 is a yearlong, citywide conversation about change - where we've been, where we are now, and where want to go over the next 20 years. Connect with Seattle 2035 so you can help shape the future of Seattle.
