The Future of Seattle: Building the City We Want

Crosscut / Community event

Perennially listed as one of the best places to live, Seattle now faces many of the hurdles that the world’s fastest-growing cities do - heightened by the impacts of the COVID-19 shutdowns. Among them, hybrid work models and half-empty offices; economic instability that threatens vulnerable communities and businesses; diverse neighborhoods upended by gentrification and displacement; and rising costs of living that make it unaffordable for artists. We’ll sit down with three leaders taking on these challenges and hear how they hope to rebuild Seattle to be the city we want it to be.
