Seattle is growing. Denser, more efficient urban environment replaces existing structure. Businesses come and go. Infrastructure expands. Neighborhoods are redesigned around pedestrians and cyclists. Rents increase. Displacement occurs. But does urban growth lead to inequitable neighborhoods? How do we, as a city, design neighborhoods that serve the greatest share of the population? How do we encourage thriving businesses that serve their community?
We will host a panel discussion revolving around the drivers of change on a neighborhood scale and on the challenges facing a growing city. Our diverse panel features a local restauranteur that brings new and lasting contributions to our neighborhoods, a planner responsible for accommodating low-income housing and an advocate for large-scale development projects. Come listen and take part in a conversation on the factors behind Seattle’s urbanization and the policies aimed to guide it.
