The Development Department is accountable for advancing the agency’s strategic goal to increase the availability of low-income, work force and affordable housing in safe and thriving communities. The department seeks to increase the number of affordable housing units, both rental units and home ownership, through a variety of programs and partnerships. The Development Department is responsible for planning new affordable housing and redevelopment; developing community amenities such as open areas, gardening and community services spaces; managing community engagement regarding development; implementing development projects; overseeing the sale of land; supporting neighborhood associations; and participating in local and regional planning meetings that may involve potential new low-income and affordable housing development opportunities. Examples include the redevelopment of the High Point, Rainier Vista and NewHolly neighborhoods and, more recently, Yesler, into vibrant mixed-income communities.
