In Washington, the Growth Management Act (GMA) requires cities to plan for and manage population growth with goals focused on how we can encourage development in urban areas, meet transportation needs, and increase affordable housing. King County policies also require that urban cities like Redmond plan for a greater share of the region’s housing to accommodate future growth.

In 2019, Redmond received a grant to develop a Housing Action Plan. The Plan will include an analysis of the existing housing stock, current and projected housing needs, and opportunities for housing.

On March 16, 2021, Council adopted the City’s first Housing Action Plan, culminating a yearlong project to analyze Redmond’s housing needs, garner community and stakeholder input and buy-in, and formulate six strategies and 25 actions. This plan will provide direction for future housing policy, planning, and regulatory amendments to improve housing diversity, quantity, and affordability to meet the needs of all economic segments of the community.
