Seattle’s Population Is Booming, Except for Where It’s Shrinking – Next City
"One of the most controversial elements of the recommendations of the Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda was that they framed single-family zoning as an outgrowth of racially exclusionary policies of the past, from redlining to further changes in the mid-20th century, Pettis says. Some people in single-family neighborhoods felt they were being labeled racists because of where they chose to live, both Pettis and Parham say. But even though the city didn’t move forward on those zoning changes after the agenda came out, Pettis says they sparked an important conversation.

“I think that [the agenda] did a huge service to the city by touching that third rail of single-family zones and not getting completely electrocuted,” Pettis says.

In any event, Parham agrees that many of the regulations in single-family zoning grew out of segregationist policies, and serve to perpetuate segregation today."
