Lack of land supply and other barriers to new home construction have contributed significantly to escalating housing costs and a housing supply shortage in King and Snohomish counties. It is a regional issue that is making it increasingly difficult for families and job seekers to find attainable housing near employment centers.
The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties has prepared this issue brief to discuss ways we can make housing more attainable and make the Growth Management Act work as intended. Separately, the MBA created an informational piece providing a higher-level view of steps needed to create a healthier, more sustainable balance between housing supply and demand.
