The Capitol Hill Ecodistrict is a neighborhood-based sustainability initiative serving the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, the most densely populated urban village in the Pacific Northwest. The Ecodistrict was formed in 2012 and was guided by the original EcoDistricts Framework, developed by the Portland Sustainability Institute (now EcoDistricts). It is led by Capitol Hill Housing, a community development corporation and public development authority. The Ecodistrict is a community-driven effort that promotes a socially equitable, environmentally resilient and culturally vibrant neighborhood.
The Capitol Hill Ecodistrict 2015 Annual Report details significant achievements by the district, including formal recognition by Seattle’s City Council and progress made toward eight performance indicators, such as energy and transportation.Download
