As rents continue to skyrocket in Seattle, city leaders are looking for innovative ways to create more affordable housing. The latest solution, selling $29 million in bonds to build affordable units, has been called both necessary and financially irresponsible. We look at the controversy, the funding plan and the projects being proposed.
