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.
