EcoDistrict Update – January
The Capitol Hill EcoDistrict is off to a strong start for 2015 It’s been a quite a busy beginning of the year in the EcoDistrict. We have some important updates to share and exciting ways for you to participate! Thank you for your ongoing interest.
UDATE: The Capitol Hill EcoDistrict is official! City Council Resolution 31562, which formally recognizes the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict, was unanimously passed by City Council this past Monday. Thanks to everyone who supported its passage, including representatives from the Capitol Hill Chamber, PPUNC, the Capitol Hill Community Council, 12th Avenue Stewards, Seattle 2030 District, Capitol Hill Housing, and the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict Steering Committee. We will return to the Council in the 3rd Quarter with a report on how the EcoDistrict and City are collaborating in meeting community sustainability goals. Read more about Resolution 31562 here, here where Sally Clark asks if every urban village should be an EcoDistrict, and here.
UPDATE: EcoDistrict Index Launched! After months of hard work, data collection and discussion, the first set of indicators for the Capitol Hill EcoDistrict Index is complete! The Index will track neighborhood progress towards achieving performance targets within the EcoDistrict and serve as a tool for broader community engagement and feedback. Read more here.
