Pro Mandatory Housing Affordability: Help working families find a home
By Faith Li Pettis and Greg Smith
Special to The Seattle Times, 11/30/18
“After four years of process and delay, Seattle finally has the opportunity to pass citywide Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA). By requiring all new development, no matter where it is built in Seattle, to contribute to affordable housing, we can help working families find a home in our city.
The hearing examiner’s long-awaited positive ruling on MHA opens the door for the creation of 6,000 new income-restricted homes accessible to teachers, nurses and firefighters over the next 10 years.”
