Seattle is getting more and more expensive for many households. One of the most effective tools we have to increase affordable housing options is the Seattle Housing Levy, a local property tax that voters have supported for over 30 years. The Levy is expiring at the end of 2016, and the Seattle Office of Housing would like to hear from you what your priorities and needs are as we consider a new affordable housing levy.
Please join Mayor Murray and the Office of Housing on Monday September 21st from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Seattle City Hall to learn about the 2009 Seattle Housing Levy and share your input on its future. At the community meeting, there will be a brief presentation followed by programmatic stations where you can talk to City staff about the Housing Levy programs and share your thoughts.
We want to hear from you! If you are unable to make it to this meeting, please feel free to reach out to the Office of Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts. For more information on the Seattle Housing Levy, visit www.seattle.gov/housing/levy.
