Since the neighborhood blogger role is filled and the Slats thing was an unpaid internship, this might also be the coolest job on Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill Housing is on the hunt for a Capitol Hill EcoDistrict Project Director who will work with the nonprofit development to bring a plan to further green the dense neighborhood and develop sustainability projects across the Hill.
Plus, the gig pays between $62,000 and $67,000 — depending on your experience reinventing the way the world works.
In 2011, CHS wrote about the early plans for studying a big-picture sustainability overhaul for the area near the coming Capitol Hill light rail station. Earlier this year, the Bullitt Foundation-backed study was presented at a public forum. It’s a worthy 138-page read and outlines goals for the area and solutions that could be put in place to make it happen.
Your mission as director — should you decide to take it — is to take this program to the next level by helping the area achieve green goals and undertaking sustainability projects. Plus, figure out how to pay for it.
