Welcome to the Capitol Hill Community Council
We hold our General Meetings on the THIRD Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at the Cal Anderson Park Shelter House. Our council has focused on 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.
