In the fall of 2019, Redmond applied for grant funding through state Commerce for the development of a Housing Action Plan (HAP). Funding for the HAP was made available through MBAKS supported legislation, HB 1923, intended to incentivize cities to increase the variety of housing types available and increase urban residential density. On February 18, 2020, City Council authorized the Mayor to execute a contract with ECONorthwest for the development of Redmond’s HAP. Project deliverables included a Housing Needs Assessment, Public Involvement Plan and Report, Draft HAP, Implementation Plan/Refined HAP, and Final HAP. On March 16, Council approved the Final HAP. The City will now begin working on the Strategies and Actions of the HAP.
