MAKING DEVELOPMENT BENEFIT ALL FAMILIES A BROWN BAG FORUM
open to the public

When: Friday, April 27th - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM

Where: Council Chambers - City Hall 2nd Floor, 600 4th Avenue - entrance at 5th Ave

Who: Michael Ramos, Church Council of Greater Seattle Director of Social Justice Ministries; Leslie Moody, People for Working Families (PWF) Executive Director; John Goldstein, PWF Program Director; and Lee Strieb, Change to Win Federation Research Coordinator

Sponsors: Council President Nick Licata with Councilmembers Sally Clark, Richard Conlin, David Della, Jean Godden, Richard J. McIver, Tom Rasmussen, and Peter Steinbrueck

Issues to be discussed:
Seattle is undergoing a wave of development; city leaders and citizens are asking: can development work for individuals and families of all incomes?

Recommendations will be offered by national experts towards a more livable Seattle. Development partnerships between developers, communities, and government can address possible impacts upon housing, employment, and our environment.

Development partnerships can help:
Increase the affordable housing supply so low-wage service and retail workers dont move further from jobs, travel long distances, and contribute to sprawl.

Keep wages and benefits from slipping for lower-wage workers.

Minimize new demand on taxpayer-funded health care.

Improve urban livability and environmental sustainability by increasing density with community mitigation.
