The Skyway-West Hill and North Highline Anti-Displacement Strategies Report

King County’s Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) and Department of Local Services (DLS) are partnering to develop an Anti-Displacement Strategies Report for the Skyway-West Hill and North Highline areas.

As the region grows and housing costs rise, Skyway-West Hill and North Highline residents have shared concerns about ongoing displacement and housing affordability. In response to the feedback we heard during the 2018-2019 Skyway-West Hill and North Highline Subarea Land Use planning processes, the Department of Community and Human Services and the Department of Local Services are collaborating on a feasibility and legal analysis report.

Building off the community’s feedback, King County will work in close collaboration with the community to identify the strongest solutions to prevent displacement and increase housing affordability in Skyway-West Hill and North Highline. The final report and recommendations will be informed by conversation and dialogue with the community to identify key risks, community-supported mitigation of those risks, and areas of concern that may need addressing beyond the scope of the strategies included in the report. In addition, we hope to identify community partners who want to engage with us around the implementation of these strategies over the next few years.
