- Capitol Hill Housing’s annual community forum is always illuminating and, as far as figuring out what comes next, a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy. On hand will be participants and an audience full of the movers and shakers who get things done, get things built and get things moving on Capitol Hill. Past topics have included the future of 12th Ave, transit oriented development on Broadway, and the Capitol Hill ecodistrict. Well, what do you know? CHS has recently reported on 12th Ave, Broadway TOD and, yes, the Capitol Hill ecodistrict.This year, CHH takes on a whopper — the death of Capitol Hill. It’s free but you’ll want to register. This annual prediction of the future fills up every year. Predictably. UPDATE: Breaking news — We were just notified of an addition to the panel line-up: Knute Berger, Columnist, Crosscut

- A reminder that the massive Melrose and Pine project takes its last spin through the Seattle design review process Wednesday night at 8 at Seattle U’s Alumni and Admissions building (901 12th Ave). It’s seemingly pretty late in the process for the community to have a strong voice in what comes next for the project but there’s a renewed effort via Facebook to encourage public feedback for this other Capitol Hill projects.
- Also on the public feedback docket Wednesday is the afternoon session of the Seattle Landmarks Board as it considers the possible nomination of the Richard Hugo House building on 11th Ave.
