It’s a busy night for Capitol Hill slow-growthers — there’s this microhousing design review complete with 330 square-foot units to be concerned about. Meanwhile, the Seattle mayoral candidate with the most NIMBY clout will also be on the Hill as former City Council member Peter Steinbrueck visits 19th Ave E for a talk with prospective voters.
Steinbrueck’s Saving the Livability and Human Scale of Our Neighborhoods session is slated for 7:30 PM at the Russian Community Center, 704 19th Ave E —
Meet Seattle candidate for mayor Peter Steinbrueck on May 29th at 7:30 p.m. on Capitol Hill for an informal discussion about the livability and human scale of Seattle neighborhoods.
Peter is running for mayor because Seattle needs to rebalance our city’s priorities around people, communities, and neighborhoods before we lose what matters to us most. Peter knows the importance of livability and human scale in Seattle’s residential neighborhoods.
Peter was born and raised in Seattle. Throughout his life’s work, Peter has focused on creating a healthy, attractive, working city that respects the people who live here, and the mountains and water that surround us.
As a former city council member, nationally recognized architect, and visionary urbanist, Peter is well known for his dedication to the built environment. He is an equally compassionate humanitarian and advocate for social justice, the poor, homeless, and “putting people first” at budget time. He values every life and every opinion.
Seattle is a city of neighborhoods, a unique mosaic of character and personality that sets our city apart. Imagine a neighborhood where nearly everything you need is just a short walk from your home—the grocery store, schools, public art, a park, services and shops, the library, bus stops and restaurants. All in a neighborhood with its own personality, built on a human scale, and designed for living.
It’s called a complete neighborhood—and it’s what every neighborhood in Seattle can be. Safe, walkable neighborhoods where we go after work, meet our friends, or explore on the weekend – they give life and flavor to our city. They must be designed on a human scale, for walking, biking and living, with all the services we need in our daily lives just a 20-minute stroll away – at the most.
Join Peter for an informal discussion about Seattle and his vision for our city with him as mayor. Please plan to attend, bring a few friends with you, ask questions, and share your vision of Seattle neighborhoods.

Last week, Steinbrueck finished third with just a little more than 17% of the vote behind Ed Murray and incumbent Mike Mcginn as the the 43rd District Democrats voted to endorse their State Senator for Mayor of Seattle.
In a CHS survey earlier this year as candidates first threw their hats in the ring, Steinbrueck finished fourth. Of the respondents that both said they would vote for Steinbrueck and lived,worked or went to school on Capitol Hill, transportation issues were cited as the group’s most important factor in making a selection.
