Capitol Hill Community Post | Community Design Day: What People Think of 15th Ave. E.

Nonprofit architecture firm Environmental Works celebrated national #CommunityDesignDay last Friday by hosting a sidewalk forum outside Fire Station 7 on 15th Ave. E. About 50 Capitol Hill residents and visitors shared what they love about 15th, and what they’d like to see on 15th.

Loves: great, small local businesses; walkability; wonderful people; genuine, full of life; diverse; full of history; distinctive. Hopes for 15th’s future: more pedestrian-friendly features, including trash and recycling bins; no giant high-rises or chain stores; more fresh local produce; and better nighttime safety.

  1. That’s funny. Diverse? No high rises? For all the progressiveness and liberalism up here, this is pretty hysterical. NIMBY ALERT! There is no diversity on 15th, this neighborhood is not diverse. Give me a break. And are we to assume that every area around the city should be upzoned but these precious enclaves are to be spared? Wow.
