Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Department of Neighborhoods was created in 1991 by consolidating staff from the Executive Department's Citizens Service Bureau and Office of Neighborhoods, the Community Service Centers of the Department of Human Resources, and the Neighborhood Assistance Division of the Department of Community Development. The Office of Urban Conservation, the City's historic preservation agency, was added in 1992. The following year, the department added a community development function by taking over projects in the Central Area, Southeast Seattle, and the Port of Seattle. In 1999, the Neighborhood Planning Office was abolished and its continuing functions were assumed by the Department of Neighborhoods. The Department's mission is to bring local government closer to the citizens by maintaining a responsive presence in Seattle neighborhoods, by responding to citizen concerns and complaints, and providing a communications link for neighborhoods on City issues that will have an impact on them. The department operates the Neighborhood Service Centers (Little City Halls), administers the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program, staffs the Landmarks Preservation Board, and manages the P-Patch program.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The 12th Avenue Development Plan had the goal of redeveloping the area between 12th and 14th Avenues and Marion and Jefferson Streets. The plan sought to create a mixed-use neighborhood with strengthened ties to the nearby campuses of Seattle University and Providence Medical Center. Records include property appraisals for the project area; documentation of negotiations with Seattle University over environmental cleanup of one parcel; information about tenant relocations; and background materials, maps, and news clippings relating to the project.
