The plan includes a housing needs assessment, input from community members and stakeholders, and review of housing policies in the city.

Housing objectives include promotion of new market-rate and affordable housing options; encouragement of home ownership and equitable housing; to plan for Federal Way’s forecasted growth; and to preserve the existing affordable housing in the city.
