City Inside/Out: Affordable Housing
Skyrocketing rents and housing prices in Seattle are fueling the city`s affordability problem, leaving most housing out of reach for low- and middle-wage workers. How will Seattle house over 100,000 new residents in the next decade? Should developers pay a new tax to create more affordable housing? Will a controversial proposal to raise the rents of low-income residents and move them into the job market work? How can the city`s homeless population find permanent housing? We hear from Andrew Lofton, executive director of the Seattle Housing Authority; Steve Walker, director of the city`s Office of Housing; Janet Pope, executive director of Compass Housing Alliance; and Roger Valdez, director of Smart Growth Seattle.
