POLL: Do you support the redevelopment plan?

After a decade of legal wrangling, Seattle may be close to building homeless and low-income housing at Fort Lawton near Discovery Park in Magnolia. The plan calls for nearly 240 units of subsidized housing and more than 21 acres of parks and open space. Supporters say the mixed-income development will help address the city's affordable housing crisis, but critics argue the site is inconvenient and better suited for environmental preservation.
