COUNCIL FUNDS ACTION PLAN FOR BROADWAY
$125,000 will be used for projects to breathe new life into the Broadway business district

An action plan to revitalize Capitol Hill got the green light from the City Council today when the Council approved $125,000 to fund key projects intended to breathe new life into the Broadway business district.

Councilmember Sally Clark, chair of the Economic Development and Neighborhoods Committee, announced the decision to fund the plan, saying, The action plan is intended to bring new businesses to Capitol Hill and more people to those businesses. I have confidence in the action plan largely because of the civic leadership provided by the diverse group of community activists who created it. Its the people in the community who will bring back the neighborhood; Im inspired by their work and happy that the City can play a role in funding their efforts.

Councilmember Peter Steinbrueck applauded the effort and noted that Broadway has long been a priority for the Council and the City. The Council began working with members of the Capitol Hill community more than two years ago. This funding represents a milestone that will be seen as the turning point for Broadway and Capitol Hill, says Councilmember Steinbrueck.

The funding will help form a Capitol Hill Chamber of Commerce, revitalize the retail mix on Broadway and help form a Capitol Hill Improvement District.

Leaders from 17 businesses, nonprofits and education institutions worked together to create the plan. Chip Regan, co-chair of the Broadway Economic Vitality Action Agenda Team and chair of the Capitol Hill Improvement District Steering Committee, says, Weve got great momentum and energy with the leaders of all our organizations and we look forward to continued progress.
