Vision Hillman City Community Kickoff says
Hey, Hillman City!

Can we take a sec’ to talk about ...
Why we all live, work, play, or pray in Hillman City? What's so special about Hillman City?

So, maybe you've noticed ... there's a lot going on in Hillman City. New and longtime residents living side by side … New businesses opening next to long-established ones … Rainier Avenue going on a "diet" .... Hillman City being described as an “up-and-coming” neighborhood … Real estate and rental prices on the rise for businesses and residents.

Clearly, there's a moment here ... as Hillman City seems to be changing all around us, now more than ever, we need to take this time to learn more about who lives here and who does business here, and what it would take to keep them in the neighborhood! So those of us who live here can start to have more of a say in how those changes unfold.

Vision Hillman City.. Uh, what’s that?

Vision Hillman City started with the idea that a neighborhood dialogue needs to happen (like NOW!). It 's a big endeavor, getting a whole neighborhood involved, so it was clear that resources would be needed: money, volunteers, spaces to hold events, facilitators, and more. The Department of Neighborhoods helped get the ball rolling with a $25,000 matching grant. And now, in 2015, the conversations are about to kick off.


Volunteer to help organize these neighborhood conversations. Help with outreach, other working groups, or the Steering Committee. Even asking your neighbors a few short questions will help — ask about the Vision Hillman City Neighborhood Questionnaire!
