Under One Roof: City-Level Affordable Housing Commitments & Actions

King County cities have recently updated their comprehensive plans, but there is still much to be done to implement the new plans. In 2016, HDC commissioned Under One Roof from the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance. The report is a review of changes the comprehensive plans of 19 King County cities’ as a result of HDC advocacy, analysis of local priorities, and examination of which policy commitments have been implemented and which are still left to do.

HDC looks forward to working with cities in the coming years as they create Housing Strategy Plans and work to implement, monitor, and evolve their housing policies and programs.

HDC thanks the Evans School team; Alexander Casey, Alena Marshak, Rose Rubel, and Xinwei Wang for their dedication and the thorough research that went into this project.
