On June 11, Capitol Hill Housing hosted its 8th annual community forum at Broadway Performance Hall. The focus of this year’s forum was the massive amount of development happening on Capitol Hill and how it is changing the neighborhood.

CEO Christopher Persons showed that there are over 30 proposed developments with more than 2,800 apartments and more than 250,000 square feet of commercial space coming to the Hill. Yet currently, the only affordable housing being developed on Capitol Hill is our 12th Avenue Arts building.

Panelists Knute Berger, Sally Clark, Elizabeth Dunn, A-P Hurd, Stephen O’Connor, and moderator Michael Wells talked about the increasing demand for development in the area and discussed possible ways to maintain affordability.

So how do we preserve affordability and diversity on Capitol Hill? Follow us on facebook and join the conversation.
