Shaping Seattle’s Future: Creating Livability for All

Updated on April 9th, 2019

Seattle is in the midst of rapid change. A booming tech sector is bringing growth and prosperity like never before, and along with it, major challenges to affordability and livability.

Rising home prices are impacting our residents. How will we keep homeownership accessible for everyone?  In the next 20 years, Seattle is expected to create 115,000 new jobs. How will the city adapt to meet the needs of its growing population? How can we preserve Seattle’s culture and foster thriving and diverse communities?

Join Redfin and KIRO 7 for a panel discussion on Feb. 24 to address these questions and discuss solutions.
