People love Seattle. So what do we do about our popularity? Here are our choices.
1. Allow additional housing capacity throughout Seattle (how and where to do this is open for debate), allowing people that want to move here to move here without kicking those with less money out.
2. Keep our restrictive zoning that only allows a small rate of growth, and allow affordability to plummet as rents go up to match demand.
The housing crisis won’t last forever. We can ride the next building boom, or watch as the suburbs do it for us.
