Regional Planning for a Sustainable Future

PSRC works to ensure a bright future for the region through planning for growth, transportation and economic development. 

Environmentally focused growth and a vibrant economy

Just over 4 million people live in the central Puget Sound region now. Forecasts show the region will grow to 5.8 million people by 2050. VISION 2050 is the regional plan for managing growth over the coming decades. The regional growth strategy calls for focusing new housing, jobs and development in regional growth centers and near high-capacity transit. The strategy also aims to keep rural areas, farmland and forests healthy and thriving.
