Built Environment Mayoral Candidate Forum
Seattle will have a new mayor next year, and the built environment of our city is under stress like never before. How do the candidates propose to accommodate the 3,125 new Seattleites who arrive each month while addressing the homelessness crisis? How do they hope to grow our city while preserving the quality of life for all residents?
