Seattle Housing Authority & Yesler Terrace Makeover

Last Tuesday, the Seattle Housing Authority Board of Commissioners approved the project of redevelopment and the makeover of the Yesler Terrace.  Why the city even owns property, land, real estate and have a Seattle Housing Authortiy Board of Commissioners is another topic but it appears to be another Board that makes decisions for the Seattle residents and is quick to blow money on projects without proper discussions.  The construction is expected to cost 300 million (so they say) and will take 10 to 20 years.

The last step is getting the City of Seattle Council Members to approve it and since money is no object in Seattle Washington I would expect it to easily pass with little to no discussions or debates by the Seattle Council Members.  They probably won’t even have a public meeting.

Having lived in the Pacific Northwest his entire life, Jeff understands and delivers a different perspective about politics. Even though many may disagree with his language and writing style, you can't debate his passion for the Seattle area and his committment to a better society.


  1. Councilmembers are not in touch with the public. You’re right when you say “the hell with the public”. You cant reach them to tell them a thing.

  2. You’re right Kelli we will just wake up on day and with no notice the money will have already been debited out of the Seattle tax account. To the councilmembers and seattle housing authority board it’s not their money so might as well just spend it on what they feel is important. The hell with what the public thinks.

  3. I believe this will pass the city of seattle council members with no problems. The Seattle Housing Authority Board of Commissioners and the council members are basically on the same team so it will move forward with no debates or communication.
