Now the Mayor of Seattle and the City Council are proposing to bring the Housing Affordability and Livability plans into practice in the year 2017. This plan could include zoning regulations which would bring benefit to controlling what types of new buildings will come in along Wedgwood’s commercial district of 35th Ave NE.
