Crown Hill Urban Village

What’s Happening Now?

We hosted our first community workshop on October 13. If you couldn't make it, you can view PDFs of the boards and email comments to CrownHillPlan@seattle.gov.

Please share your thoughts with us by taking our online survey as we continue to work with the community to identify challenges, opportunities, goals, and to and explore data and trends. You can also share your ideas and feedback on our interactive map. Learn more details about this project by visiting our interactive story map.

We are reaching out to community members to ensure that our planning process will engage a full range of community stakeholders. If you'd like to get involved, please subscribe to our mailing list or contact us directly via email or phone.

Project Goals

The City and community will work to identify priority issues and opportunities in the neighborhood and the community's vision for the future. The plan will result in recommendations and specific steps the City and community can take to foster a vibrant, walkable, and healthy neighborhood.

We've heard the following themes during previous community conversations, and will continue to engage with the community on these and other issues:

  • Create a walkable town center with a variety of businesses and services
  • Improve pedestrian and bicycle connections, especially to parks and schools
  • Foster safe, and engaging public spaces and streetscapes
  • Add and retain affordable housing in the neighborhood
  • Improve stormwater drainage 
  • Ensure the design and scale of new development complements the neighborhood

Get Involved

We have a variety of online tools where you can learn about the project and process, identify key concerns and opportunities for improvement in the neighborhood, and help guide the vision for Crown Hill in the future:

Your feedback will help guide community priorities and future investments in the neighborhood.

We will be hosting a series of four Community Workshops during October 2018 - June 2019 to collaborate in developing an action plan around key priorities and to guide growth and coordinate investments in livability in the Crown Hill Urban Village.
