Is the greening of Seattle and its metropolitan region benefiting all communities equally? With rising real estate values in the city, how can planners and civic leaders in the region address the rising housing and transportation costs that drive moderate and lower income residents farther and farther away from basic public services, such as public transit and parks? Can moving forward on a climate action agenda help bring about greater social equity? How do we ensure that all citizens have the opportunity to be part of the process that creates a new vision for the future? What are the most important investments the region should be making to increase the opportunities for all to prosper?
In this panel discussion moderated by Ron Sims, former Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Island Press authors Marc Brenman and Howard Frumkin as well as Seattle community advocates Rich Stolz and Sue Sherbrooke will weigh in on these questions and detail a new path for a sustainable and equitable future for the Puget Sound Region.
