While the city is moving in the right direction when it comes to easing the burdens on development, it is at a slower pace than many. This is likely do to reputation built over the last decade that builders have interpreted as a jurisdiction that is unfriendly to growth. Credit is due to staff and their efforts to change this perception. This is occurring at a significantly important time, as we need more housing than ever. The last report I saw suggest ed that Olympia added around 350 doors in 2022. The pace needs to be closer to 750 per year through 2045. Eliminate inefficiencies and delay, and redundant or ineffective policy. Then we will see the growth we need.
