To create a vital neighborhood - one with strong connections between people, place and the local ecosystem.
Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We envision a sustainable Capitol Hill as a neighborhood with vibrant natural, social, economic, and built environments:
Natural - We envision carbon neutrality, clean air, clean water, and a healthy habitat in balance with the dense urban environment.
Social - We envision dynamic connections within the neighborhood that create a fun place to live with a strong identity and a sense of stewardship for the greater community.
Economic - We envision a robust and equitable local economy with a strong focus on local products and produce.
Built - We envision green and livable buildings, a lively pedestrian-oriented streetscape, and a variety of clean and reliable transportation options
As a dense and vibrant urban neighborhood, Seattle's Capitol Hill is already a strong community with all the basic elements (compact living, transportation options, and a healthy local economy) that can make sustainability possible. Through education, organization, and action, we can make our neighborhood a model for a sustainable future.
