An historic moment for planning in Seattle: Density bonuses for affordable housing are now allowed all over the city as Seattle implements a big piece of its long-percolating Mandatory Housing Affordability plan.
Liberty Street was once a narrow, urban street. Now it's seven lanes of unsafe speeds and pedestrian risks. The city has a plan to greatly reduce the number of traffic lanes on the street, or another plan that won't.
A potentially radical point of view that must be considered by planners: moving the field forward will require soul searching that confronts an overcomes the disposition and exploitation that defined the past and continues to influence the future.
