A consultant's report in April said Sequim must create more affordable housing to maintain its quality of life.
Now it's the public's turn to say how best to accomplish that goal.
The public brainstorming session is set for 4-6 p.m. today, Wednesday Aug. 19, at the Guy Cole Center in Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Ave.
Sequim City Councilor Bill Huizinga said the session will include the familiar breakout groups and butcher paper on easels with black marking pens.
Each group will be given an outline and asked how best to implement each point, he said.

The following road projects are scheduled in the area this week:
_ Pavement marker maintenance in both directions of U.S. Highway 101 from mileposts 250-263 between Port Angeles and Sequim. Expect single-lane closures from 6:30 a.m.-4 p.m. through Thursday, Aug. 20.
