Mayor Harrell announced the launch of the Downtown Activation Plan – a bold and ambitious roadmap to revitalize and transform Downtown Seattle now and for the future.
The City is already taking action Downtown to address urgent challenges. This includes the Executive Order on fentanyl, the expansion of the services provided by the Metropolitan Improvement District to increase cleaning efforts, and a series of policy changes to increase housing and make doing business easier.
As of December 2023, 37 of the 46 initiatives are already underway or completed. The remaining initiatives are on track to be completed by June 2026 with more Downtown investments and policy changes gaining momentum as the City shows progress.
This plan also includes visionary ideas that will signal a transformational future for Downtown Seattle. These ideas will take over three years to strategize, secure investments, and develop.
