Seattle Growth Podcast 3.3: The battle for Seattle

The faster that Seattle transforms economically, physically and culturally, the more this transformation seems inevitable.

Change is inevitable. But growing ranks of Seattleites—developers, business owners, activists—are getting in on the conversation over their city’s future.

You could, too.

Episode 3 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, Season 3, considers how regular residents of Seattle can influence the pace and face of their city’s transformation. Host Jeff Shulman speaks to three Seattleites who have organized, lobbied or litigated their way into the debate over what their city will look like—and feel like—in the years to come.

Roger Valdez is founder of the advocacy group Smart Growth Seattle.

Martin H. Kaplan is a local architect who has served on the Seattle Planning Commission.

Ethan Phelps-Goodman is the founder of Seattle Tech 4 Housing and Seattle In Progress.
