About Seattle.gov

Seattle.Gov is the City of Seattle's public website, a 24-hour City Hall for the citizens of Seattle. The Mayor's Office, the City Council, and most city departments, offices, agencies and boards are represented on the Seattle.Gov website.

Seattle.Gov is also a web portal. Our website allows you to find City information and services by different methods - a search engine, a city services index, a department directory, or by topic. The topical pages also include links outside of the City of Seattle - to the region, state, country and world.

Seattle's Community Technology Program provides free public Internet terminals in city buildings, a directory of computer learning centers and grants to organizations for digital literacy and access.

Citylink Seattle offers residents the latest information, such as police and fire activities, events at parks and the Seattle Center, and up-to-the-minute news about traffic and utilities, using blog and newsfeed technology.

My Neighborhood Map is a map-based feature that helps you find information and services in your neighborhood geographically.

The city offers many event calendars from various departments, boards and offices.

Seattle is one of the few cities worldwide that have a dedicated electronic democracy initiative. Our E-Democracy initiative created the Seattle Channel, the City of Seattle's government access TV channel and website.
