The Capitol Hill Community Council is continuing to reinvent the way a community advocacy group should gather and organize to help change and preserve its neighborhoods. Old-school meetings are out. Gatherings to get something done are in. One recent example is the CHCC’s focus on homelessness earlier this summer. The next council meeting is a week away — but it could be worth planning ahead for the opportunity to gather with others to learn more about the next set of big issues and opportunities for Capitol Hill and help set the next course of action for the group:
Capitol Hill Community Council Community Activation Fair
The Capitol Hill Community Council October General Meeting takes place on Thursday, October 22 at 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Avenue) at 6:30 p.m. in the Pike/Pine room.
This month’s program is dedicated to maximizing community engagement by continuing the critical conversations that will and/or have affected our neighborhood.
With facilitators managing (what we like to call instead of “stations”) “Learning & Engagement Clouds” on topics, including HALA Recommendations, 2035 Comprehensive Plan, Convention Center Expansion, Vision Zero, L.E.A.D. Program, Emergency Preparedness, Light Rail station, Streetcar to help us learn more, identify ways to provide feedback and questions, engage with neighbors, and discover ways to advocate and get involved!
We’re trying something new because there are so many important conversations to have and we don’t want to miss our opportunity to add our neighborhood’s voice!
