Neighbors for

Greater Capitol Hill

A New Registered Neighborhood Organization (RNO)

For people who want to be actively involved

in setting a direction for the greater Capitol Hill neighborhood

Who we are:

A group of neighborhood activists who believe that more focus is needed on Greater Capitol Hill's core issues of:

  • Zoning

  • Transportation, including walking, biking, transit and - yes - even driving. This includes parking issues, which create headaches throughout our neighborhood.

  • Historic Preservation, because our neighborhood is host to so many historic structures, including some iconic ones.

  • Licensing, including for establishments that sell alcohol and marijuana.

The boundaries of Neighbors for Greater Capitol Hill are generally: York/Josephine Streets on the east, 6th Avenue on the south, Broadway on the west, and Glenarm Place/23rd Avenue on the north.

Demolition Permit for Campbell-Stone Residences Withdrawn

Botnick Realty withdrew its application for a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility for the property at 1295 Race Street on October 15th, the Campbell-Stone Residences. The apartment building houses low-income seniors.

Neighbors for Greater Capitol Hill Board member Michael Henry was one of three neighborhood residences that filed a notice of intent to oppose the application by filing for a landmark designation on the building. Botnick Realty withdrew its application the next day.

According to a story in the November 9th "BusinessDen," Botnick Realty's Brian Botnick said in an email, “We simply decided that it was premature to process it. As we had said earlier we were just exploring options so there was no urgency to the application.” The certificate would have allowed the building to be demolished at any time within a five-year window.
