We are community members throughout Seattle who want to ensure that our city is both affordable and livable for everyone. We see our city rapidly deteriorating from unrestrained development, and recognize that HALA, the Grand Bargain, and the 2035 Comprehensive Plan will only accelerate that pace.
Seattle Fair Growth recognizes that growth is coming and believes we must find ways to accommodate growth that:
- Builds infrastructure “concurrently” to support it. The roads, the transit, the bridges, the bike lanes, the parking, the schools, the utilities
- Allows all citizens the ability to live within the city limits and not be priced out of the city
- Encourages a two way conversation between its citizens and policy makers
- Sustains our environment
- Maintains our distinct neighborhoods and quality of life
Seattle is under tremendous pressure because of the unprecedented growth it is experiencing. Because of this, there have been numerous community specific advocacy groups that have sprouted in order to address the growth issues and pains in their neighborhoods. As a city wide group, we are uniquely positioned to help unify these groups and, through our combined strength, influence city policy to achieve the above goals for the city we love.
What do you want our city to become in five or 10 years? Do you like what you have seen in the last five? Do you want a voice in how it grows? Sign up for our mailing list and we’ll keep you apprised on issues we are working on and how you can help. Join us now or contact us!
