No nits to pick with the policy direction of the Seattle Times’ surprisingly forceful editorial in favor of stronger inclusionary zoning rules. I agree: “The policy makes sense in a city like Seattle, where population and job growth are boosting housing costs and most new developments cater to high-end renters.”
That said, if the editorial board really means what it says when it concludes…
The City Council should consider a more aggressive target that caters less to developers’ interests.
… it might want to endorse City Council candidates who cater less to developers.
