Community council activities will keep a good Capitol Hill citizen busy this week. City Council member Richard Conlin will be on Hill for one meeting, plus opportunities to make 12th Ave safer and join a community group working to make Capitol Hill a better place, below.
- East District Council – Monday, 6-7:30p — Cal Anderson Shelter House
The City Council’s Richard Conlin will be in attendance at this umbrella group’s meeting to bring together neighborhood reps from First Hill to Madison Park. Neighborhood coordinator Tim Durkan tells us Conlin “will be updating the group about important issues he’s working on as well as take your questions and comments. We’ll also have a round of informative updates from our board, Project Fund presentations and public comment at the end of the agenda.” Be there.
- 12th Avenue Road Safety — Wednesday, 6-7:30p — Capitol Hill library branch
An active branch of the Community Council, the 12th Ave group is nearing an important milestone in its project to make the street safer for pedestrians, bikers and drivers:
After receiving widespread community input as to where 12th Avenue is most dangerous and which solutions people would most like to see, our consultant SvR Design will be presenting a draft of the recommendations report that we will deliver to the City. We need your feedback on how to refine the recommendations as the report is finalized! In addition, we will have exciting news about the first of the improvements we expect to see implemented in the near future.
- Capitol Hill Community Council – Thursday, 6-8p — Cal Anderson Shelter House
No agenda from the group that has grown into an effective and efficient community representative body. Bonus: Meetings are much more calm now that jseattle is no longer in charge.
The next general meeting of the Capitol Hill Community Council has been scheduled for Thursday, March 15, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at the Cal Anderson Shelter House.
The Capitol Hill Community Council (CHCC) is a neighborhood organization and its members include everyone who lives, works, volunteers or owns a business within Capitol Hill. According to our bylaws, the boundaries of Capitol Hill are I-5 to the West (just east of downtown Seattle), 520 to the North, E. Pike and E. Madison streets to the South, and 23rd and 24th Avenues East to the East.
The Capitol Hill Community Council’s purpose is to ensure that its members have a voice in our community’s affairs. Through our continuous efforts we strive to empower the residents of our neighborhood to make Capitol Hill an even greater place in which to live, work, and visit. CHCC General Meetings are generally held on the third Thursday every other month (Jan/Mar/May/Jul/Sep/Nov) at the Cal Anderson Shelter House from 6-8pm. Please check our blog for meeting updates and meeting minutes. Come by and get involved!
