City Council Redistricting

District 6 Public Forum is July 14th

According to the 2020 Census, Seattle’s population is 737,015, a growth of 21.1% since 2010. The redistricting process will ensure that, by the 2023 election cycle, each Seattle Council District will include approximately 105,288 people. To achieve this number, the Commission will redraw the boundary lines of all districts, expanding Districts 1, 2, 5, and 6 and contracting Districts 3, 4, and 7.

Attend a Public Forum Register in advance at

District 6 Public Forum: July 14, 2022 from 5:30pm-7:30pm

Physical: City Hall, 600 4th Avenue, Bertha Knight Landes Room

Virtual Link:

Information on Initial Map Alternatives can be found at city's website - links below. All 7 council members representing the current district's terms expire in December, 2023. Note that the initial maps show some odd boundaries on the north for D6 and the population estimates do NOT recognize all of the new units recently constructed or under construction now in D6 (Greenwood and other locations.) The Redistricting Commission is aware of this but uncertain how it will influence final District boundaries.

We are happy to announce we’re launching a community engagement process for the Green Lake Outer Loop Project! We’re envisioning a full loop on the outer edge of Green Lake to create more space for people to safely walk, run, and bike around Green Lake and connect our neighborhoods, and we need your input.

Over the next few months, we will engage with you on designs for the Aurora Ave N and W Green Lake Dr N segments see map below). We want to understand your values better, what is working, and what could be improved. Join us for our Online Open House!

Project background

Green Lake is one of Seattle's most beloved regional parks. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the region.

Based on community feedback, Vision Zero safety goals, and desire to provide more low-carbon travel options, we're building off two recently completed projects, the Green Lake and Wallingford Multimodal Paving Project and the new shared walking and biking path on W Green Lake Way N) to create an outer loop for people to walk, roll, and bike safely around the lake and connect our neighborhoods.

We want to keep you up to date

Annual Public Safety Survey

The Seattle Police Department is working with social scientists to reach, and listen to, a broader range of voices in our community. Police have long relied on 9-1-1 calls and reports as a primary means of identifying priorities. But 9-1-1 and police reports don't always tell the whole story. SPD is partnered with two research groups to gather expansive community input, to help our department make informed decisions about complex public safety issues. SPD's work with Seattle University led to the development of our Micro Community Policing Plans, which have guided our precinct-level priorities. The MCPPs recognize and address that no two neighborhoods in Seattle are the same, and help direct police services to address the individual needs of each community.

SPD is also now publishing data gathered by Zencity, showing how the people of Seattle feel about the department and its services. Zencity will deliver short digital surveys to Seattle residents so they can provide confidential feedback on how safe they feel, how much they trust police, and to identify the main concerns they want the SPD to address.

The Seattle Police Department understands the importance of community feedback and partnerships. By using better, more representative data from our city's residents, we're better equipped to find solutions to the problems that matter most to you and your neighbors.

Comprehensive Plan Amendment to Change Single Family Zones

The City Council approved the Comprehensive Plan Amendment that relabeled all Single Family Zones. The new name is "Neighborhood Residential." The next step will be changes to the land use code to allow more dense development in formerly single family zones. We will post additional information when it's available.

The Comprehensive Plan Amendment can be found below.
