Former Boardmembers, Staff, and Contributors
The Urbanist was founded in 2014 as a Seattle-based online publication seeking to examine and influence urban policies. We believe that cities provide unique opportunities for addressing the most difficult problems we face. Our publication is built on independent journalism, research, and advocacy. Relying on a variety of contributors, we dive into issues like housing, land use and zoning, social welfare, sustainability, and transportation. Our website serves as a resource for sharing ideas, creating community, and improving the places we live.
