City Inside/Out with Brian Callanan
The Future of Yesler Terrace
Premieres Fri., May 4, 7 p.m.
We examine the future of Yesler Terrace, Seattle's oldest public housing development and the nation's first racially integrated public housing. Built in 1941, Yesler Terrace's aging buildings are falling apart. It also sits on 30 acres of valuable real estate on the edge of downtown. How should the city proceed with redeveloping the neighborhood? What will happen to the 1,200 low-income residents who live there? We hear from representatives of the Seattle Department of Planning and Development and the Seattle Housing Authority as well as Yesler Terrace residents. Catch past episodes of City Inside/Out.
