Civic Duty | ‘There Goes the Neighborhood?’ — Forum looks at the fight for Hill’s soul

  • 960088_10151390117796017_1511912113_nCapitol 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
