At the August meeting of the Council, there was discussion around the possibility of changing our neighborhood designations from the old nine (9) neighborhood designations to a new five (5) neighborhood designations in accordance with the Capitol Hill Master Plan of 1999.
Two neighborhoods remain the same: Ensign and Desoto. Swedetown is no longer designated a neighborhood due to its increasing industrialization. This area and the 400 – 500 West Corridor are designated as Industrial Areas. The other six neighborhoods are combined into three neighborhoods: Marmalade, West Capitol Hill and Kimball, The Trustees of Capitol Hill Neighborhood Council will consider these new changes over the months to come in 2013. Please share your comments through this website. Thank you.
