Urban Renewal in Seattle Exhibit at the Seattle Municipal Archives

A new online exhibit exploring Urban Renewal in Seattle is now available on the Seattle Municipal Archives website. Placing Seattle’s urban renewal projects within the context of federal funding, state laws, and the City’s identification of “blighted areas,” the exhibit outlines and explores Seattle’s Urban Renewal Program from its first project, Cherry Hill, to various Neighborhood Development Projects. In addition to narrative and images, the exhibit also includes timelines and a full bibliography.
