  • ULI Washington recently completed a report titled “Increasing Housing Supply and Attainability – Improving Rules & Engagement to Build More Housing.”  The report is the result of a research and outreach effort that included focus groups, surveys, and interviews with those involved with the entitlement and citizen participation process.  An Impact Task Force was instrumental in choosing the focus of the research – to examine two critical factors that affect the speed and certainty of the development process:  navigating the local regulatory and approval process and gaining community acceptance of development projects.  The report is intended to serve as a conversation starter to advance the practices of approving entitlements and enhancing the scope of inclusiveness of community participation in the process.  The district council and Impact Task Force look forward to talking about the issues raised in the report with developers, public agencies, elected officials and citizens, with the goal of keeping our region economically competitive while providing housing for all.
