Mayor Murray and members of City Council launched work on a new Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda, calling together leaders in our community to help develop a bold agenda for increasing the affordability and availability of housing in our city. Charting a course for the next 10 years, this agenda ensures the development and preservation of a diversity of housing for people across the income spectrum. The Housing Affordability & Livability Advisory Committee will review every piece of the housing puzzle, including innovative ideas to pilot new types of housing, accessory dwelling unit regulations, new efforts to preserve existing affordable housing, opportunities to stretch our valuable Housing Levy dollars, and more.

The agenda will be guided by the following goals and values:

  • Strengthen our city through housing affordability
  • Ensure equal access to housing to advance social and racial justice
  • Promote the livability of Seattle’s neighborhoods
  • Promote housing opportunity across Seattle
  • Promote equitable growth Continue our commitment to prioritizing those most in need
  • Embrace innovation and build upon current, proven programs and policies
