Vital Downtown Core
Support development and redevelopment within downtown Sequim which will preserve the district’s small town charm, support pedestrian-oriented circulation, and retain the downtown core as the cultural heart of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley.
The in-fill of undeveloped residential lands in and around downtown Sequim will help to strengthen the existing neighborhood by enhancing safety, creating more livable streets, and promoting a social fabric where “small-town friendliness” is experienced every day. The City has put a strong emphasis into downtown to create an economically healthy and diverse district that has a mixture of uses, including housing, retail, professional services, restaurants, and special event opportunities. It is important to maintain a healthy balance between Downtown and the regional shopping centers to ensure that Sequim retains its identity with a charming downtown that is pedestrian friendly and encourages social interaction.
