Plymouth low-income housing project rejected



At a special meeting Jan. 22, 2024, the Kenmore City Council voted 5-2 to adopt ordinance 24-0605 denying the development agreement for the proposed Plymouth Permanent Supportive Housing development at 6532 Bothell Way NE. 


The decision to turn down the project followed a vehement backlash from community members opposed to the project. The six story building would have provided 100 studio and one bedroom housing units for people with incomes of $28,000 or 30 percent of average median income (AMI) for Kenmore. The rejection sets back the city's plans to meet state-mandated low-income housing units for Kenmore.


House Bill 1220, a state law passed by the legislature in 2021, requires that cities specifically plan for needed affordable housing at different income levels.
