SEATTLE – The Puget Sound Regional Council is seeking public comment on the draft Regional Housing Strategy. The public comment period will run from Monday, July 12 through Friday, August 13 at 5 p.m.
 
The public can review and comment on the draft Regional Housing Strategy through a website designed to get feedback on the strategies under consideration for each of the topic areas: supply, stability, and subsidy.
 
Many people in the region experience housing instability daily. The housing market has become increasingly unaffordable, creating unprecedented challenges for residents to find and keep a home they can afford. Meeting the housing needs of all households at a range of income levels is integral to the livability of the region.
 
The Regional Housing Strategy is intended to be a “playbook” of regional and local actions to preserve, improve, and expand housing stock in the region. The aim is to make a range of affordable, accessible, healthy, and safe housing choices available to every resident and to promote fair and equal access to housing for all people.
 
The development of a Regional Housing Strategy was called for by VISION 2050, the region’s growth strategy. It will help guide and support upcoming local comprehensive plan updates.
