What's the Problem?
Seattle is growing rapidly. Despite our work toward building a great city, the benefits of major growth and investment are not shared by everyone. We must act soon to keep modest-wage workers and their families from being forced to move away from our vibrant city because housing costs are too high.
What's the Solution?
Mandatory Housing Affordability policies can help Seattle remain a place for people of all incomes to prosper in place. These programs require that affordable housing is built as new development occurs. It's time Seattle follow in the footsteps of cities across the country and pass a strong inclusionary housing program.
