Island Crossroads – Community Plan and Affordable Housing

March 21st, 2017 by Eric Pryne

King County’s draft Vashon community plan includes language intended
to encourage development of more affordable housing in
Vashon Town. Supporters say it would lower a hurdle that has helped block badly
needed housing for lower-income islanders. Critics say it could open a Pandora’s Box
of unintended consequences. Learn the ins and outs, and pros and cons, on “Island
Crossroads.” Host: Eric Pryne.

Guests: County planner Bradley Clark, VashonHousehold Executive Director
Chris Szala, former Water District 19 Commissioner
Frank Jackson, and Martin Baker, veteran of previous island planning efforts.
