Regional housing strategy moving ahead

Growth board will meet online July 16

On July 16, the Growth Management Policy Board will be briefed on housing efforts underway at PSRC and around the region.

The board meeting will also include a panel discussion with outside speakers leading collaborative housing programs at the local, regional and state levels, including HB 1923 Urban Residential Building Capacity Grant Program, the Snohomish County Housing Affordability Regional Taskforce (HART), and the King County Affordable Housing Committee.

Other items on the board’s agenda include:

  • An update on implementation of the Regional Centers Framework
  •  Recommendation on Buckley’s comprehensive plan update
