Vision Hillman City is a neighbor-driven project leading the diverse Hillman City community in a series of community conversations about its future.

Our Story

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 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. Throughout 2015, the conversations have been taking place in a variety of community hubs.

If you’ve missed this events — never fear — we’ve kept notes, photos, and in some cases, video, from each community gathering. It’s a great collection of the concerns, desires, and creative ideas that community members have been sharing, and they’re all posted on this site and available as printable PDFs.

Vision Hillman City Goals

* building a greater awareness and understanding of who’s here — who lives, works, plays, prays, or studies in Hillman City?

* finding out what’s most important to the neighborhood — what are the highest priority needs & desires for Hillman City?

* taking action on those neighborhood priorities

* helping to cultivate a shared neighborhood identity

Community Conversations

Notes from past events: Apr 23rd,  Jun 17th, July 16th, Aug 20th
