Think Seattle will soon become unaffordable? Fear not: the city is putting an end to unaffordable rents

The City of Seattle wants teachers, receptionists, therapists — and anyone making in that salary range, and under — the ability to live in Seattle.
It’s nothing new that Seattle is a great place to live, with many large employers, and one of the strongest local economies in the country. Over the next 10 years, city officials expect tens of thousands of new families to relocate to the region. With mild weather, beautiful natural resources and a socially progressive population, officials are buckling down to ensure that everyone can live well, with ample access to housing, transportation and livability resources.
