Mandatory Inclusionary Zoning Gets Committee Approval in Seattle
"Seattle neighborhoods could start seeing bigger buildings under new zoning framework passed by [the City Council [Planning, Land Use, and Zoning Committee] Tuesday," according to Paige Browning.
"The legislation will change neighborhood zoning [pdf] so developers can put up larger, taller buildings. In return, developers will have to include low-cost housing units with each building – or pay into the city's affordable housing fund," reports Browning.
The map below illustrates where the new inclusionary zoning regulations would be implemented around the city.
