Assessing housing needs and supply in the region

Growth board to meet virtually on October 15

Early findings from the Regional Housing Needs Assessment will be presented at the Growth Management Policy Board meeting on October 15.

The assessment looks at the gaps between housing needs and supply now and into the future. The findings will inform development of the Regional Housing Strategy.

The needs assessment analyzes conditions, trends and gaps in the region’s housing stock and demonstrates how local and subregional housing need and supply fit into the regional picture.

Other items on the agenda:

  • Appointment of Renton Councilmember Ed Prince as Vice Chair of the Growth Management Policy Board
  • Discussion of upcoming work to update the Plan Review Manual, which supports work by counties and cities to update comprehensive plans and countywide planning policies
