Industrial and Maritime Strategy Council Delivers Comprehensive Recommendations to Support Jobs and Innovation
After careful deliberations, the City of Seattle’s Industrial and Maritime Strategy Council has developed 11 strategies to support the next generation of industrial and maritime jobs. The group’s recommendations aim to grow thousands of living-wage jobs, while providing equitable access to those opportunities for the BIPOC community and women. The strategies emphasize the need to provide stronger land-use protections for core industrial and maritime areas, while encouraging areas for modern, innovative high-density industrial development in walkable areas near light rail stations. The proposals also seek to create improved transitions between industrial areas and residential or mixed-use areas with affordable opportunities for small-scale light-industrial businesses, makers, and creative arts and provide new flexibility for industry-supportive housing to allow workers and entrepreneurs to live near their place of work.
