Policy Landscape

Understanding the policy landscape in the Central District in Seattle is integral to achieving the goals of the Nehemiah Initiative. There are important federal, state, and local policies that are currently in place that shape how development occurs in the neighborhood. The Policy Background page gives short summaries of these policies that interested churches should be aware of when considering developing on their property. The Policy Recommendations page includes a policy memo directed at the City of Seattle that outlines some steps the city may consider adopting in order to further foster equitable development in the Central District.
