Housing Affordability and Livability
Mayor Murray and members of City Council called together leaders in our community to help develop a bold agenda for increasing the affordability and availability of housing in our city by convening a Housing Affordability and Livability Advisory Committee. After months of deliberation, they reached consensus and published a report with 65 recommendations to consider.
Internet access is the infrastructure challenge of the early 21st century. The City must continue to explore all options that would increase the availability of competitive, affordable gigabit broadband internet access.
Seattle Preschool Program
The Seattle Preschool Program is a big investment in our city's future. Thanks to Seattle voters, we have our best chance to close the opportunity gap - to ensure all children are ready to learn when they enter K-12 - regardless of race, gender or economic status.
