Adaptation + Resilience | Capitol Hill EcoDistrict : Walking Tour

The Capitol Hill EcoDistrict is a community-initiated & led effort in pursuit of sustainability and resilience in this home to 30,000 residents in the densest neighborhood in the Pacific Northwest. Founded in 2011, efforts focused on energy demand, supply, and distribution. Using the EcoDistricts certification Protocol, the group developed a comprehensive approach to the neighborhood, one that focused on the imperatives of equity, resilience, and climate protection. Partners in the effort included community stakeholders, residents, small businesses, community organizations, City agencies, and major institutions.

Capitol Hill the heart of Seattle’s LGBTQ+ community and is home to more artists than any other neighborhood in the city. Renters comprise 80% of residents, and represent a wide range of identities, backgrounds, and experiences. As the neighborhood emerged from the Great Recession, opportunities arose to clearly articulate community priorities, in the interest of positively serving the existing and future community to the highest degree possible. Using the EcoDistricts framework, neighborhood-specific projects and metrics were developed to ensure ongoing improvement.

Please join AIA Seattle A&R Committee for a member-led on a tour of the neighborhood, with a focus on projects that pursue EcoDistict Prioriites of Place, Prosperity, Health+Wellbeing, Connectivity, Living Infrastructure, and Resource Regeneration.
