Upzones for More Homes?
In response to rising rents and an affordable housing shortage in Seattle, city leaders have forged a "Grand Bargain" between developers, low-income advocates and other stakeholders to address the housing crisis. The Seattle City Council is now working on new legislation to create 20,000 more affordable housing units in the next decade. Will new developer fees solve the problem? Why are some neighborhoods concerned about the plan to change zoning rules across the city?
