City Inside/Out: Upzoning the U District
City Inside/Out: Upzoning the U District

POLL: Do you support the U District Upzone?

Seattle is booming, but where should everyone live? City leaders will vote next month on some controversial zoning changes for the University District. Supporters cite growing pressure to create more affordable housing in the neighborhood before light rail arrives in 2021. But opponents argue small businesses and low-income residents will be displaced unless they are offered more protection and help from the city. Should the U District welcome mixed-use buildings that are up to 320 feet tall around the Ave.? We hear from all sides.
