Housing Plans & Documents

This page contains information on plans and documents that inform housing planning for the City of Redmond. This includes items which influence the City of Redmond but are from external organizations like King County.

Redmond is a diverse community with a high quality of life. People from throughout the region come here to work in industries such as software, aerospace, interactive media, and electronics. As the number of people who desire to live in Redmond has increased, the supply of housing affordable at various levels has not kept pace with the demand.

Increased demand for housing in Redmond has resulted in higher home prices and rents. This in turn has affected the ability for first-time home buyers, workers earning minimum wage and those on fixed incomes to live here. With a significant increase in population expected by 2050, the City has planned for this growth while maintaining the quality of neighborhoods and by using a comprehensive approach to address a range of housing issues. Redmond strives to provide a wide range of housing types at all levels of affordability.
