| Welcome to the Capitol Hill Community Council
|Our mission is to advocate, educate, and activate our community. It is an opportunity to support our work, moving forward – some of our past successful programming includes advocating for community input, large-scale gentrification conversation, homelessness outreach, expansion of LEAD and MDT, and very soon we’ll have a city-wide Renters’ Commission. Supporting us helps us continue this work and expand our possibilities.
We have reviewed all of the input on what to prioritize on this year from the open house and would like to thank our neighbors for participating. We will be focusing on these topics throughout the year.
Spring is here(well almost)! Time to throw open the windows, clear out the dust and make the home sparkle again. During this time of renewal and rebirth, we recommend cleaning out, then greening out your space! “Greening” or sharing your space with live plants has been shown to have many benefits, improved mood, fewer colds, breathe cleaner, and think clearer!
On Saturday, March 18, the Capitol Hill Community Council, in collaboration with Seattle Seed Company and Capitol Hill Tool Library host a “Green Your Space” event!
This event will feature an opportunity to learn more about the tool library, learn how to plant and “green your space” – whether your home on 22nd or your studio apartment on Pine St – with a planting tutorial/workshop, and meet and get to know your neighbors.
We will provide coffee and breakfast treats from Mighty-O Donuts! This event is free and open to the public.
+PLUS! Updates from the Capitol Hill Champion!
We hold our General Meetings on the THIRD Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Our council has focused on advocating for race & social justice, cultural and physical preservation, transportation, greenways, the pedestrian experience, affordability and accessibility, living wages, intersectionality, safety, shared community, and opportunity for all.

Capitol Hill is vibrant, diverse community of bustling activity and peaceful abodes. Part hip and urban, part wooded and stately, it is a community that often feels like a small town in itself, one that a huge variety of businesses – and people from all walks of life – call home.
Highlights include the Broadway Farmers Market, a seasonal fiesta of food, flowers and music; Cal Anderson Park, which is full of dog walkers, Frisbee players and children dipping their toes in the streaming fountain; and the Pike/Pine Corridor’s vintage clothing stores, furniture shops and coffeehouses.
There’s also plenty of green. At the north end of Broadway sits Volunteer Park, a large, forested urban oasis, replete with a glass conservatory built in 1912, the Seattle Asian Art Museum, and a water tower with splendid 360 degree views of downtown Seattle and neighborhoods near and far. From here, all the favorite Seattle landmarks are visible, from the Space Needle to Lake Washington’s floating bridge to Husky Stadium.
