South Delridge Action Plan

About This Project

Situated in West Seattle, the South Delridge community is made up of several neighborhoods, such as Roxhill, Westwood, Delridge, and Highland Park. South Delridge is a culturally diverse community with commercial areas that serve southern West Seattle and White Center. 
Community members in the area last completed a vision and accompanying policies to help shape the growth and investment in their neighborhood over 20 years ago. For many years, community members have expressed a desire to update their vision. 
This community planning process includes the Westwood-Highland Park Urban Village, and the surrounding South Delridge neighborhoods where people gather, shop, seek services, and recreate, that are important to communities living in the planning area. An exact planning area is being determined through the initial engagement process.

What's Happening Now? 

We are working to develop partnerships with community organizations and City departments to elevate community voices, and connect them with City departments who will collaborate on this project.

In 2022, we engaged with community members at the Lowrider Block Party and Delridge Farmers Market, and also held small community events with Hope Academy as well as Southwest Early Learning and Refugee & Immigrant Family Center.

Update 2/28/2023 - Our survey is now closed. We received 285 responses, thank you! We are now analyzing the survey responses and will publish our findings as part of the Initial Engagement and Background Report for South Delridge in Spring 2023. 

Update 1/23/2023 - Our initial community-wide survey is now available! 

We are partnering with community and other City departments to develop a vision for the future of South Delridge. This will help the City support community and focus investments in the coming years. Your input will help identify what issues to address through South Delridge Action Plan, as well as what you think the future of the South Delridge neighborhoods should look like!
The survey closes on Sunday, February 19th, 2023. We will use feedback from this survey (along with feedback gathered at various community meetings) to identify community priorities, and strategies to address issues these. This survey will take approximately 8 minutes to complete. Your input is important and will help make South Delridge a great place to live and work.

South Delridge Action Plan team engaged with community members at the Lowrider Block Party in summer 2022.

Get Involved

Community members will be involved in every step of defining the project, developing a vision, identifying strategies, and taking action.
During the second half of 2022, we will participate in community events and host gatherings for community members to provide their input.
