Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Department of Community Development administered the City's comprehensive plan and provided direction and support for the City's physical and economic development through community planning. DCD was established in 1969 and assumed the responsibilities of the City Planning Commission and the Urban Renewal Program. In 1972, the Office of Economic Development was created in the Department to provide information to businesses that were expanding or relocating in Seattle. DCD was the lead agency for implementing various types of grant funded projects, such as Neighborhood Improvement Program, Targeted Neighborhood Assistance Program, and Neighborhood Development Program. DCD was abolished in 1992 and its programs were relocated in the Department of Neighborhoods, Department of Housing and Human Services, Planning Department, and other agencies. DCD records include material from the City Planning Commission, Zoning Commission, Metropolitan Arts Commission, Board of Adjustment, and Urban Renewal Program.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The DCD’s Housing Development Program sought to expand the City’s low income and senior housing, provide technical assistance, and direct new development in city neighborhoods. Funding was provided through multiple sources, including the DCD Block Grants, NHRP, Innovative Grants, and HUD Section 8 and Section 312 grants. Projects consisted of housing complex rehabilitation and construction as well as neighborhood and park development. Noteworthy projects include the Atlas Hotel, Bush-Asia Center, the New Central Hotel, Alki Hotel Renovation and Pelican Bay Artist’s Co-op. Most projects involved multi-family housing and many were in the International District. Files consist of correspondence, project proposals, grant applications, project descriptions, contracts, agreements, appraisals, drawings and photo images. Also included are minutes, agendas and correspondence with the Seattle Chinatown-International District Public Development authority.
